Steven Ridley ruled active for Patriots

As the New England Patriots prepare to take on the Cleveland Browns on Sunday afternoon, they have decided that running back Stevan Ridley will suit up for the game. Last week, Ridley was ruled a healthy inactive thanks to being in the doghouse of head coach Bill Belichick after another fumble lost in Week 12, but he will get a chance to redeem himself this week.

Ridley is expected to split early carries with LeGarrette Blount when he first sees the field, but he will have the opportunity to get a bigger share of the load as the game goes on if he is able to prove that he can be trusted.

New England will be ruling with a true running back by committee in Week 14, so choose wisely if you need to roll with a Patriots running back in your fantasy football playoffs.
