(Sporting Alert) — The New England Patriots have decided to recall running back Brandon Bolden from the suspended list for Monday night’s big time NFL clash with the travelling Houston Texans.
New England Patriots announced on their official website at www.patriots.com, that Bolden was activated and will be a member of the 53-man roster.
“The New England Patriots activated RB Brandon Bolden to the 53-man roster,” the club said on Monday.
The 22-year-old had not played since he was suspended in early November after he violated the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing substances.
The undrafted free agent, who joined the Patriots from Mississippi in May 2012, has 43 rushing attempts for 234 yards with two touchdowns from his first six games of the season.
Houston Texans (11-1) have won six in a row and take an undefeated road record to the Gillette Stadium to face a Tom Brady led New England (9-3) side which is also hunting its seventh straight victory.
The Texans will enter tonight’s contest with a two game lead over the rest of the AFC and are coming off a 24-10 win over Tennessee. They are 9-0 in conference and 4-0 in division.
The Patriots, which defeat the Miami Dolphins 23-16 on the road in its last outing, have dropped just one game at home this season.
