Stevan Ridley has said that he is ready to move forward after recovering from a concussion which knocked him out of the AFC Championship game earlier this year.
The 24-year-old told the Boston Herald: "I thank the Lord that I'm healthy and brought me back. All I can do now is move forward from that, but it was a nice hit that I took. Just got to shake it off. Comes with the game.
"It wasn't pretty at all. It was one of the worst ones that I took in my life. Besides that, it comes with the game. Sometimes it's others, and sometimes it's ourselves. But either way, I love the game, and I love football."
Ridley recorded 1,263 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns for the Patriots last season.
