Ridley's spot solidified after Vereen injury?

New England Patriots running back Shane Vereen was placed on injury reserve with a designation to return because of wrist surgery stemming from a injury sustained Week 1. The first week he will be eligible to play again will be Week 11 against the Carolina Panthers. The injury to Vereen means Stevan Ridley's job is safe but also puts pressure on coach Bill Belichick to clarify other options at the position.
