Was Ryan Torain's injury career ending or something???

Seriously, where the hell has this guy been? I didnt think that he was that seriously injured. Still says he has hamstring problems but i'm beginning to wonder if Ryan Torain is actually deceased.

He's been gone for 5 games?? I was hoping this guy was the next feature back, but now i guess he doesnt even return to football this year...very disappointing.

I think I read somewhere that Shanahan was disappointed in his rehabbing of the injury... Not sure though.

Torain has a peg leg, took a while for Shanahan to notice though...what with his glass eye

Seeing how the Skins rehabbed Malcolm Kelly's hammy in pre-season, then Carlos Rogers' last month, I'm not putting much faith that our training staff is very good at getting guys with hamstring injuries back and ready to go.

So glad I removed the locker room threads from the auto feed to twitter and facebook.

exactly what i was going to post, this is why i just don't see him being around as a skin, it'd be nice if it could happen but so far it ain't lookin good.

That's way generous IMO. I think he's about a top 30 back at best, he often misses holes, doesn't have great speed & can only run straight ahead in the open field. I don't think his vision is that good, but when he cuts decisively he does hit the hole hard.

The Malcolm Kelly of RBs, except he's at least shown he can make some plays.

Torain is a decent player but nothing that scares anyone, we need an explosive RB, I'd rather stick with Davis and see what he can do

I was kind of surprised Shanny let Alridge walk. Not that he's an everdown back, but I thought he could be an electrifying change of pace guy

Maybe we can look at D.Williams, I doubt Car brings him back
