BY DAN BEGNOCHEAfter 36 straight games, New England Patriots running back Stevan Ridley's streak is over.A slew of other pertinent players could also end up joining Ridley on the sidelines Sunday, as the Pats currently have another 10 listed as questionable on the injury report. The two consistent question marks have been tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Danny Amendola, though Amendola is a more likely to play than Gronkowski.On the Bengals' side, James Harrison is expected to dress despite a knee injury that had him listed as questionable earlier in the week, which is good news for a defense that allowed 270 passing yards and two touchdowns last week in a loss to the Browns.
