Another RB Bites the Dust

Running back Carnell "Cadillac" Williams will undergo season-ending knee surgery.

Williams injured his right knee during the first quarter of last Sundays game. Caddy overcame a huge slump continuing from last season. In week 2 he rushed for 61 yards and 2 TDs, and the following week vs St Louis he rushed for 46 yards and a TD.

Michael Pittman and Earnest Graham are going to split the load at RB. Pittman has more yards, but Graham has 3 TDs on the year, and may be worth a look.

With Caddy and Alstott out, it looks as though Graham should continue to get the goal line carries. If your hurting at running back and looking for the next best guy, Graham might be worth a spot at this point.
