Stevan Ridley out with head injury

FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots running back Stevan Ridley took a brutal hit on a run in the fourth quarter from Baltimore safety Bernard Pollard, who ruined Tom Brady’s 2008 season.

Pollard hit Ridley head-on on the play. Ridley was knocked hard to the ground and fumbled, and the Ravens recovered.

Ridley was taken to the locker room, and the Patriots announced Ridley suffered a head injury and will not return.

It was the latest incident in a string of injuries inflicted by Pollard to the Patriots. In last season’s AFC Championship, Pollard was the player who caused Rob Gronkowski’s ankle injury. Pollard also injured Brady in the opening game in 2008, causing him to miss the rest of the season.
