I guess having two runts who are practically returners with fumbling problems was not deemed to be worth it.

Torain is a walking injury type. Many of us did question his staying power. What we need is to find the next Brandon Jacobs or Brian Westbrook, or better yet Stephen Davis.

I like Torain as a running back but I swear, if he gets injured again this season, we might not keep him around. It's hard to keep around a guy who can barely get on the field, and as good as he is, it's not like he's shown that he's the next Adrian Peterson when he's been on the field.

I question the talent of the training/conditioning staff. That many weeks for a strained hamstring is unacceptable by any standards. You dont see this happening on any other team, where so many people begin the season with injuries, etc....

Hammy's are tough, he tried coming back a few weeks ago and ended up tweaking it again. That sort of thing happens often.

So I guess he's not dead eh?

Just hope the guy can stay healthy, he definitely deserves to be in the mix next year.

If Torain continues his performance from last game through out the remaining season, I do not see any reason why he would not be in the mix next year..
