Look, TH is clearly not playing well and Torain came in and played great. I won't be surprised if Torain is the starter against Philly, but TH is dinged up. He's had a lot of work so far.

Why didn't you mention that before? I didn't see the game as the Lions were on. That is the first time anyone has mentioned that he was wearing a shoulder brace. So he did get banged up. He will probably be benched for week 6.

I just saw people say he was banged up, no mention of a brace.

Re: The Running Game

If teams truly reported all injuries, the lists would probably include just about every guy on the team. Who isn't dinged at this point?

According to Bill Bellichick...nope.

I think so too. Some nice idiot hit a power line in my area so power was out till 4pm, but listening to the radio for most of the 1st half I was supprised with how many times Hightower missed the cut back hole though. It sounded like on 4 run plays he missed the cut back lane and tried to force it outside which only got him a yrd or two when had he cut back there were big holes. Then Torain came in and was hitting the cut back lanes for big yrds.

Nothing against Hightower but it seemed Torain was trying to show the coaching staff they made a mistake having him sit for so long. It always seemed to take more then 1 or 2 people to bring him down today and on his TD run he looked like Superman flying into the endzone. Then there was a run where he dragged/carried a LB 6 yrds before being brought down.

Re: The Running Game

I think people were forgetting Torain wasn't healthy the first 2 games of the season because of his broken hand. He could've played last week but didn't.

Thats the part that scares me more then anything. Torain has a terrible track record health wise. And with Hightower already hurt I'm a little worried about the possibility of only having Helu, Royster, and Young as the only three backs available. Granted thats not a bad deal but the three headed monster is a luxury that I don't want to give up.

Yeah that's true. But the season is young, we have our bye next week which should help Hightower get healthier and as long as we don't run Torain into the ground I think we'll be fine. Even if Torain is lighting it up I expect them to put in Helu occasionally as a change of pace. Love what Torain brings to the table as a banger but a banger and a speedster work well in tandem.

Re: The Running Game

Torain's hand couldn't have been too hurt cause he was used in the last preseason game and seemed to be ok.

Re: The Running Game

This is a good problem. Presents match-up problems for the opposition. I say keep the rotation and go with the hot hand in the game. The competition will bring out the best in all the backs.

Re: The Running Game

Doesnt really matter who we start cause Shanny is smart enough to use all 3 guys. I rather not play Hightower if he is injured though.
