The New England Patriots have declared CB Alfonzo Dennard, RB Brandon Bolden, OG Chris Barker, DL Jake Bequette, RB Leon Washington, SS Steve Gregory, LB Steve Beauharnais inactive for Week 11.
Huddle Up: With Shane Vereen's activation, the Pats' backfield was going to be even more crowded than usual, but the team has decided to go with Ridley, LeGarrette Blount and Vereen as their primary RBs Monday night. Bolden has scored in 2 of his past 3 games, but only had 3 rushes for 36 yards in the Pats' last game in Week 9.

The New England Patriots have declared RB Brandon Bolden, DL Chris D. Jones, WR Danny Amendola, TE Rob Gronkowski, LB Steve Beauharnais, OT Will Svitek, TE Zach Sudfeld inactive for Week 2.
Huddle Up: Many thought Bolden would be part of the Pats' RB solution with Shane Vereen landing on IR this week, but his nagging knee injury apparently is proving too bothersome. On the flip side, it's good news for Steven Ridley's and LeGarrette Blount's fantasy owners and those who took a flier on Leon Washington.

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept 11, and is questionable for Week 2.
Huddle Up: He might be the best alternative to Shane Vereen at this point. Keep an eye on his situation.

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden (knee) was inactive in Week 1 due to a knee injury, but he could be a top candidate to replace RB Shane Vereen (wrist) as the team's 'passing back.'
Huddle Up: Bolden has been hampered by the nagging knee issue all offseason, and it might be a stretch to think he's suddenly ready to assume a major role. Leon Washington, re-signed Saturday, might be the more viable -- and healthier -- option for the time being.

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden (ankle) did not participate in practice Monday, July 29.
Huddle Up: Bolden has gotten back on the field in training camp after sitting out all of the offseason workouts, but the ankle is obviously still hampering the second-year RB.

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden (ankle) did not participate in the team's offseason program because of a sprained ankle he suffered while working out in the offseason. Bolden will meet with team doctors Monday, July 15, but it is expected he will be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Bolden, an undrafted rookie, showed some flashes in averaging 4.9 yards and scoring a pair of TDs on his 56 carries in 2012, but he still ranks way down in the Pats' RB pecking order with Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen and newcomer LeGarrette Blount also in the mix.

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden is expected to compete for carries during training camp next season.
Huddle Up: Bolden had an eventful rookie season, which featured a 4-game PED suspension and a knee injury, and he finished as the team's third-leading rusher with 274 yards and 2 TDs on 56 carries. With his off-field issues hopefully behind him, definitely expect Bolden to be in the thick of the Pats' RB mix next summer along with Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen.
