New England Patriots running back Stevan Ridley didn't return to Sunday's AFC Championship Game after sustaining a head injury during the fourth quarter of his team's 28-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
With 12:53 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Patriots trailing 21-13, Ridley was walloped by Pollard at the end of a 5-yard run. Ridley lost the ball as he went to the ground, and it was recovered by the Ravens. An official review upheld the ruling.
Ridley remained down for several minutes before walking off under his own power and heading into the locker room, likely for concussion testing. The Patriots later ruled him out with a head injury.
The Ravens took over and needed just four plays to cover 47 yards for a touchdown that ballooned their lead to 15 points with 10 minutes to play.
