Ridley won't fumble his shot at No. 1: Ben-Jarvis Green-Ellis’ record of fumble-free perfection with the Patriots spanned three-and-a-half seasons. Stevan Ridley got his first fumble out of the way this season in Week 4 against the Broncos and followed it up with another a week later. Doghouse. He roared back and led the NFL with 716 yards rushing heading into the bye. Shane Vereen was unable to seized the job, nor is he ready for it. Bolden has been out with a knee injury and Danny Woodhead is most effective when teams don’t expect him to run. Ridley should solidify his role as the team’s No. 1 back and not lose another fumble – until the playoffs.
