Brandon Bolden | RB | New England Patriots

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden is expected to be cut from the team, in the opinion of beat writer Erik Frenz.
Huddle Up: Bolden has rushed for 274 and 271 yards, respectively, over the past two seasons while scoring 5 TDs but he's still solidly behind Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen on the depth chart with the team also spending a fourth-round pick on Wisconsin back James White.

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.
