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.

Ridley declined to speak to reporters throughout the week when approached in the locker room, stating simply that, "I don't have anything to say." Previously, he said that he was "sickened" by his inability to hold onto the ball.
