Will Brandon Bolden be back to play in this game since his suspension is over? If he does, do you think we'll use him a lot? He's shown a lot of potential in the few games he's played with his tough and powerful running.

It’s going to be interesting to see what happens with Bolden. Obviously since he’s been out Shane Vereen has done a pretty good job in spot duty, including that 80-yard touchdown against the Jets.

But still Bolden is a different kind of back so I’m sure they’ll figure out a way to use him. But he was injured even before he was suspended so who knows how his conditioning is. He’s a power back and can pick up some tough yards, but is similar enough to Ridley that he’s not going to bring a whole new dimension to the backfield.

I like Bolden but I don’t think we’ll see much of him against the Texans, and perhaps not even much against the 49ers. The last two games of the year will be a good time to get him back involved and see how much he can contribute, if at all, in the post season.

Let’s remember he’s a rookie and the last thing we need is him coughing up the rock in the playoffs.
