FOXBOROUGH – The Patriots have declared RB Stevan Ridley (knee) out for Sunday’s game against Cincinnati, the first game Ridley will miss in his career. He did not practice this week, so he was not expected to play.
WR/SpT Matthew Slater (wrist), who returned to practice on Friday for the first time since breaking his left wrist against the Jets, is listed as doubtful.
TE Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm) and WR Danny Amendola (groin) lead a list of 10 Patriots players who are listed as questionable; WRs Kenbrell Thompkins (shoulder) and Aaron Dobson (neck) are also among that group.
CB Kyle Arrington (groin) and OL Will Svitek (knee) are listed as probable. DB Nate Ebner (ankle) was removed from the report.
For the Bengals, CBs Leon Hall (hamstring) and Brandon Ghee (thigh), as well as G Mike Pollak (knee) are doubtful. DE Michael Johnson (concussion) and a third corner, Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring), are questionable.
