The New England Patriots fear running back Stevan Ridley has a torn ACL, according to NFL Network's Albert Breer. Ridley will have an MRI on his injured right knee on Monday.

Ridley had a brace over the knee and walked with a cane when leaving Ralph Wilson Stadium after New England's 37-22 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, according to ESPN.com's Mike Reiss.

Ridley was injured on a third quarter run when he was upended by a defender. His knee bent awkwardly as he hit the turf. He was helped to the sideline, where he was having trouble putting weight on the leg.

The four-year veteran has 340 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 94 carries in six games this season for the Patriots (4-2). Ridley, 25, has 22 career rushing touchdowns and has missed only two games in his career, both last season.
