Ridley rushed two times for one yard Sunday against the Dolphins. Even with the Jets playing with a big lead, they chose to let Chris Ivory close out the game, keeping Ridley on the bench. He now has recorded a positive yardage total for the first time in the four games he's played. However, he's gained zero yards on the nine carries he's been given this season.
Ridley carried 4 times for 0 yards and caught his only pass target for negative five yards Sunday against the Texans. Ridley has yet to gain a single yard in his two appearances this season. He now has eight touches for negative six yards. Unless he's able to do more with his chances, it's difficult to imagine him getting additional work as Chris Ivory's backup on early downs.
Ridley was active but recorded no stats Sunday against the Jaguars. Even though Chris Ivory only gained 26 yards on his 23 carries, the coaching staff apparently felt no need to get Ridley his first touch of the season. Zac Stacy was Ivory's backup in this contest, but only saw a single carry. With Bilal Powell (ankle) possibly nearing a return to action, it's difficult to tell when Ridley will see game action this year.
Ridley (knee) was active, but didn't see the field in Week 8, NJ.com reports. Head coach Todd Bowles said that he tried to get Ridley on the field, but the game script kept that from happening. With the Jets falling behind early, they found themselves in catch-up mode, resulting in Zac Stacy seeing 27 snaps. It appears likely that Ridley will see his first game action of the season soon.
The Jets have activated Ridley (knee) from the PUP list. Now that Ridley -- who is bouncing back from an ACL and MCL injury that he sustained last October -- is poised to join the Jets' backfield mix, he's in line to work behind starter Chris Ivory out of the gate. While he's not ready for fantasy lineup consideration just yet, Ridley's availability comes in handy for the Jets, with Bilal Powell out this week.
