Stevan Ridley was forced from the AFC Championship Game with a head injury, and will not return.
Taking the rock from the Patriots' 39-yard-line early in the fourth quarter, Ridley got destroyed by Ravens SS Bernard Pollard, losing a fumble on a (legal) helmet-to-helmet hit. He's almost certainly concussed. Ridley was doing his best to move the chains against an inspired Ravens D before departing, rushing 18 times for 70 yards. Although Ridley's latest lost fumble may have Dynasty-league owners fretting, it would be cruel of coach Bill Belichick to hold it against him, as Pollard's hit would have jarred the ball loose from almost any rusher.
