It was a cause for concern as the Patriots took to the practice field the other day and there was no #22 out there, for the first time this season. But according to Ridley himself, it's just a slight knee injury and that the injury is mainly in the upper thigh region and actually tighten up on him that morning, thus holding him out of practice.
He went to get further treatment on the injury and we should leave it at that. The Patriots have tremendous depth at RB and even if it was serious enough to keep him out. The Patriots shouldn't skip a beat.
Ridley suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter, but it is unclear whether it was mounting up over time, or he took a blow and suffered the injury in that play.
