While it's not known what kind of role he will be given, barring an overnight change, it is expected that Stevan Ridley will be active for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, according to a source.
The New England Patriots running back has been shrouded in uncertainty since fumbling during a Week 11 win over the Denver Broncos, his fourth fumble of the year and third in three games. Ridley was benched for the remainder of the contest and made inactive for last week's win over the Houston Texans.
One would think Ridley won't be a fantasy factor against the Browns, but you just never know with New England's running game. Ridley is obviously a huge risk in Week 14, but depending on what we learn from his role, he could end up having value after this week.
