Ridley is two years removed from an ACL tear and hoping to earn another shot at significant playing time. If he returns to form, the 27-year-old runner could reprise his 1200-yard, 10-TD production from 2012. Monitor how he looks this summer. If he earns an opportunity, he's a proven runner who could take control of the Detroit backfield. With Ameer Abdullah likely to miss most of the preseason due to shoulder surgery, Ridley gets an extended audition for the power back role vs Zach Zenner.

Lions | Stevan Ridley the favorite for No. 3 (Sun Jul 17, 03:01 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Stevan Ridley seems to be the frontrunner for the No. 3 running back position behind RBs Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick, according to Tim Twentyman of detroitlions.com. Ridley would provide a change of pace from Abdullah and Riddick, but he'll still have to prove himself after missing most of the offseason with an undisclosed injury.

Our View: Ridley has to be healthy in order to win the 'big' back job in Detroit. We like second-year pro Zach Zenner or rookie Dwayne Washington better. However, we understand that Ridley is going to get a chance to impress in camp. We'll see if he takes advantage of the opportunity.
