Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount was the first running back off the bench, substituting for Stevan Ridley. Brandon Bolden, who is fighting for a spot on this roster, should be worried about his job. He’s missed a number of practices in training camp and he didn’t fare well Friday, committing a mental error on special teams by running into Eagles punter Brad Wing. Somehow, he’s gotta catch up.
Blount finished with 101 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries, including a 51-yard run. It was more a function of the Eagles' run defense, but Blount was still impressive. Consider him the primary power backup to Ridley.
