Brandon Bolden coming off suspension, Pats get roster exemption

New England Patriots running back Brandon Bolden is done serving his 4-game suspension for violatiing the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

As is common practice, the team has been granted a one week roster exemption so he can join practices before they activate him.

They'll also need to release someone to make room for him by Dec. 11th.

Bolden ran strong in his six games played this season, amassing 43 carries for 234 yards and two TDs. He'll join an already stout running back corps with Stevan Ridley, who just passed the 1,000 yard mark, and Shane Vereen.

The hard running Bolden figures to get his share of carries in a sudden emergence of a running game for the Patriots this season.
