Stats from Dallas Game:

Curtis Brinkley: 4 carries, 4 yardsJackie Battle: 4 carries, 10 yards, 1 TD

Both Battle and Brinkley were unimpressive on Saturday against the Dallas Cowboys. Neither player stepped up to take the lead for the 3rd running back spot on the roster. Does anyone want it?

The fans are begging to see someone emerge from the group. Fans are already scanning the free agency list and trying to figure out who is available. AND yes, Ryan Grant does seem like a decent option to at least compete for a spot on the roster. it probably won’t happen, but another poor performance on Friday could definitely make some things move.

After the Dallas game, who should get that last running back spot? Should we look outside?
