Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 17 vs BUF (9 / 29 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 0 / 0 rec)
By virtue of some injuries to his team mates, Stevan Ridley earned his first start in over a year. The results, however, were not encouraging. Over the course of the regular season, Buffalo's run defense has deteriorated, but Ridley had trouble developing a rhythm in the first half. Due to game flow, New York abandoned the run during the second half.
2015 Week 16 vs NE (7 / 36 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
After Chris Ivory suffered a knee injury in the second quarter, Stevan Ridley had a few additional opportunities to 'seek revenge' on his ex-teammates. During New York's second touchdown drive, Ridley had two key carries that spurred first downs. Ridley's first step and initial jump cuts were more explosive than prior weeks, but he was clearly the third running back on the depth chart.
2015 Week 15 vs DAL (2 / -2 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
After last week's encouraging performance, Ridley had limited opportunities and failed to deliver. Alike Ivory, Ridley was met behind the line of scrimmage and stopped for losses.
2015 Week 14 vs TEN (6 / 23 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
For the first time this season, Stevan Ridley looked like the running back we saw in New England. Ridley's first step was explosive and he was able to find running room against this porous defense. While the match-up was prime, it was a great confidence building performance for Ridley that he'll hopefully build upon in future weeks.
2015 Week 13 vs NYG (3 / 4 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Another week, another forgettable performance by Ridley. The offense is making an effort to get him involved, but Ridley lacks burst and goes down on first contact.
2015 Week 12 vs MIA (2 / 1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Stevan Ridley saw limited snaps and was unable to establish himself. Ridley received one red zone carry, but was stopped for a 2-yard gain.
2015 Week 11 vs HOU (4 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / -5 / 0 rec)
Stevan Ridley saw limited snaps and was unable to establish himself. Credit Houston's defense for breaking into the backfield, but Ridley lacks explosiveness and burst.
2015 Week 10 vs BUF (3 / -1 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Back-up running back, Zac Stacy fractured his ankle during a kick-off return, so Ridley slid into the back-up running back role. Ridley looked rusty and had trouble getting into a rhythm during a limited number of snaps.
Latest NewsPatriots | Stevan Ridley unlikely to rejoin Pats (Sat Feb 6, 02:54 PM) - New York Jets impending free-agent RB Stevan Ridley is not expected to be pursued by the New England Patriots, his former team. The Patriots will likely look to add depth at running back this offseason, and Ridley is entering free agency, but New England is expected to look elsewhere. Our View: The RB market in free agency is going to be rough as there's a ton of talented backs who are likely to be available. Ridley's best days may be behind him, so we're not expecting the market to be white hot for his services.
link to story Jets | New York has questions at running back (Mon Feb 1, 04:41 PM) - New York Jets impending free-agent RBs Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell and Stevan Ridley will all be unrestricted free agents this offseason if they are not re-signed. Our View: The Jets won't have enough money to keep them all--if any. Powell seems to be a favorite of the coaching staff, and he might be the easiest to re-sign.
