Brandon Bolden active for Patriots

The New England Patriots might be missing a few receivers, but the running back group has increased today ahead of the Monday night game vs the Houston Texans.

After a four game suspension, rookie RB Brandon Bolden is back for the Patriots. He joins up with Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen and Danny Woodhead to add to the Pats potent running attack. Bolden adds another hard nosed runner to the backfield along with Ridley.

How bigger part he plays in the game is yet unkown, he's probably still in Bill Belichick's doghouse, and Vereen has taken his place in the rotation nicely. But Bolden was having a good season before his suspension, so he might be welcomed back in such an important game.
