Here's a look at how the Patriots' first-year players performed in the team's Week Two win over the Chargers.

OT Nate Solder (first round, 17th overall) — ORT Sebastian Vollmer returned to the starting role, but Solder was used as an extra blocker on multiple plays, including RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis' touchdown run. The team clearly wants to find ways to get him on the field.

CB Ras-I Dowling (2, 33) — Dowling made just one tackle in Sunday's game and didn't have the same impact he had in the opener. He left with an injury, but it shouldn't keep him out this week.

RB Steven Ridley (3, 73) — Ridley got his first career carries, taking two handoffs for nine yards as a change-of-pace back and giving Green-Ellis a spell.

LS Danny Aiken (undrafted) — Aiken played and did not miss a snap.

Notes: QB Ryan Mallett (3, 74) and RB Shane Vereen (2, 56) were inactive.
