News: Bolden had one reception for four yards in Thursday's 27-25 win over the Jets. Impact: Bolden played fewer snaps than Jonas Gray, who finished with three carries for 12 yards. Both backs were merely in the game's periphery, while Shane Vereen played a starring role with 114 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns on 16 touches. It won't be surprising if Gray and/or Bolden are a bit more involved next week against the Bears, but Vereen will likely again get most of the touches. In addition to his typical work in passing formations, Vereen got all of the touches near the goal line Thursday night, and was also used to kill the clock on the Patriots' final drive.(RotoWire, )

News: With Stevan Ridley out for the season and James White inactive, Bolden is in line to work in tandem with Shane Vereen and Jonas Gray in the Patriots' backfield Thursday night against the Jets. Impact: A committee approach Thursday is a plausible outcome, with Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald suggesting the team may be inclined to ride the hot hand, should one emerge. The 5-11, 220-pound Bolden figures to see his share of early-down work Thursday, but Vereen (in addition to his pass-catching role) and the 5-10, 230-pound Gray could factor in as well, making each member of the trio a speculative play in Week 7.(RotoWire, )

News: With Stevan Ridley out for the season, Bolden figures to see added opportunities in the Patriots' offense in the coming weeks. Impact: With Ridley no longer in the mix, ESPN's Mike Reiss suggests that the Patriots figure to employ a combo of Shane Vereen, James White and Bolden, beginning Thursday against the Jets. At 5-11, 220 pounds, Bolden, a key special-teamer, is the biggest back of the bunch, thus making him a candidate to absorb some of the heavy lifting in the team's backfield, but with a committee approach very plausible, he's not necessarily a plug-and-play fantasy option. Bolden is, nonetheless, worth a speculative pickup to see how this situation plays out.(RotoWire, )

News: Bolden had six carries for 10 yards in Sunday's 37-22 win over the Bills. Impact: Bolden's numbers Sunday weren't eye-popping, but if teammate Stevan Ridley is forced to miss time due to his knee injury, Bolden could see added opportunities in the Patriots' offense in the coming weeks, along with Shane Vereen and James White.(RotoWire, )
