    With Morris out 2-3 weeks and Jordan unlikely to be able to go and Maroney already on the IR, who do the Pats bring in?

    Samkan Gado?

    Agreed. Someone needs to be brought in. Who did they have in training camp?

    Were their any UDFA rookies of note? I can't recall. Justin Hairston was a few years ago, right? Isn't he on someone's PS?

    Here's hoping Green-Ellis is ready to step up. If not these could be a long 2-3 weeks for us.

    I've managed to completely miss this 2-3 weeks thing. Where did they announce that?

    **Edit - found it. WTF?

    I agree we need to bring somebody in. What happens if BJE gets dinged up during a game? You want Faulk to carry it 20+ times? Then HE'LL get injured too!

    We'll take Andre Hall if you also give us your second-rounder in 2009. :D

    Right. If Belichick didn't think they could play, they wouldn't be on the team.

    Supposedly we have a deep team, yet every time a starter gets hurt, Chicken Littles go bonkers running around in full flap mode.

    There is a reason they are called backups.

    No crap. If BB thought there was someone available that is better than BenJarvis he would be on the team already.

    Except right now the team only has one full-time RB healthy, and he is an UDFA. I'm not a Chicken Little, but Morris & Maroney hadn't proved durable last year, so BB carried a 5th RB in Jordan.

    Now he is proven right as Maroney is on IR and now Morris is missing time, only Jordan has not proved durable. So why would he not repeat his actions from earlier in the year and bring in another RB to hedge against Morris/Jordan not being healthy & dependable the rest of the way?

    This is not being a Chicken Little: it's smart resource management.

    I don't think they will or they would have started already. They must have know for couple of days and haven't done anything so far.

    If the team plays well this weekend with no additional RB injuries then I think they will wait it out.

    But then again, I don't run the team:D

    Yeah, they run BJGE with Faulk as a change up. And you know we'll see Heath Evans in there running for some short yardage when they want to spell BJGE.

    Or, this could be one of those games where we run 10,000 screens to Faulk and Welker in lieu of a conventional running game. Or maybe even some screens to Watson (he's still on this team, right?).

    That'll have to do until either Morris or Jordan come back, as there's not a ton of roster room to add another back.

    If they had more time..as a possibility..(meaning something they thought of months ago...) Mark Dillard who is on the PSqd...he played RB in college for a few years before conversion to the DBackfield....Well...it's certainly a thought...but..given the idea of past stars...OR impossible trades..I think they stick with what they have..

    Maybe Born_a_Patriot could do a wall paper of Chicken Littles going bonkers running around in full flap mode.

    Space - I'm not being chicken little about this. I am beal real. Fact remains that We are down to TWO RBs, Faulk and BenJarvus Green-Ellis. Jordan's status is in question. Morris is out for 2-3 weeks.

    The Pats have brought in backs previously for a look-see. One of them was Gado. With Faulk's injury history and BJGE being an untested rookie, not having a 3rd true RB is a recipe for disaster.
