The Patriots could be without their starting running back this week against Cincinnati.

Stevan Ridley missed his third consecutive practice due to knee and thigh injuries. Rarely do Patriots players that don't practice during a week play in the ensuing game.

For the season, Ridley has 174 yards and zero touchdowns on 47 carries.

The Patriots could be down to LeGarrette Blount shouldering most of the load in the running game this Sunday. Fellow running back Brandon Bolden is also banged up with a knee injury he tweaked against Atlanta last week.
