While, just like every year, the Patriots came into training camp with most of the focus on star quarterback Tom Brady, there are a number of position battles within the club that probably have a little bit less drama than the starting QB role.
One of those battles is at the running back position, where Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen (no relation to Ben Vereen, as far as we know) are getting most of the looks prior to Thursday when the Pats play the New Orleans Saints in a preseason game. Ridley seems to be getting most of the repitions, but, knowing the way Bill Belichick likes to deploy his ground game, both figure to be seeing a fair amount of carries.
Even the Saints' Mark Ingram weighed in on New England's RB situation, so watch the video above to see a rundown of the battle of the backs.
