After fumbling against the Eagles Friday night, now we'll wait to see if there are further repercussions with Patriots rB Steven Ridley's opportunities this week. If that is the case, the primary beneficiaries figure to be rookie James White and third-year veteran Brandon Bolden, who the team turned to exclusively in the ensuing plays after Ridley fumbled.
Bolden is a back who can do it all, but doesn't really stand out in one specific area and has had his chances - so White becomes the back with the most upside here. Shane Vereen will get a carry here and there but is primarily a pass-catcher. The New England backfield is once again shaping up to be a mystery. Hopefully practice reps will give us a little better of an indication.
