FOXBOROUGH -- Running back Stevan Ridley missed Wednesday's Patriots practice with a knee injury, according to the team's injury report released this afternoon.

It's the first time this season that Ridley has been on the injury report. He is the Patriots' leading rusher, with 174 yards. He rushed a team-high 11 times last Sunday night against the Falcons, including an 8-yard gain with less than three minutes remaining in the game. He didn't leave Sunday's game with any apparent injury.

Ridley was one of three players to miss practice, joining defensive tackle Vince Wilfork and special teamer Matthew Slater. There were 15 Patriots who were limited, including four newcomers to the injury report: receivers Kenbrell Thompkins (shoulder) and Aaron Dobson (neck), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (knee), and safety Tavon Wilson (hamstring). Dobson left the Atlanta game in the third quarter after taking a hard hit to the helmet in the end zone that snapped his head back awkwardly.

The other 11 Patriots who were limited: tight ends Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm) and Zach Sudfeld (hamstring), receiver Danny Amendola (groin), running backs Brandon Bolden (knee) and Leon Washington (thigh), offensive linemen Will Svitek (knee) and Sebastian Vollmer (foot), defensive backs Kyle Arrington (groin), Marquice Cole (hamstring), and Nate Ebner (ankle), and linebacker Jerod Mayo (ankle).

For the Bengals:

Did not practice:
CB Leon Hall (hamstring)
DE Michael Johnson (concussion)
CB Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring)
G Mike Pollak (knee)

Limited participation:
LB Vontaze Burfict (neck)
S Reggie Nelson (hamstring)
