Last week looked like a wash for BenJarvus Green-Ellis as he was coming of a foot injury that held him out for most of the preseason and the Bengals were scheduled to play in Baltimore.
Not so fast, as Green-Ellis ripped off over 90 yards on the ground and scored a touchdown.
We won’t see Cincinnati’s new tailback worked into the passing game frequently, but he can still be a RB2 option most weeks.
Heading back home for a matchup against the Browns, expect Green-Ellis to have another productive game as the Bengals will likely be playing with a lead throughout.
Rams Offensive Line In Trouble, Again
Steven Jackson can’t buy a break to go his way as the Rams offensive line suffered two critical injuries against the Lions. First, tackle Rodger Saffold had to be carted off the field with a neck injury, and then we found out center Scott Wells is done for the year with a foot injury.
This is a big problem for the Rams offense, and it won’t make life easier for Jackson on the back side of his career.
Due to the fact Jackson is still a talented running back, he will be used as the feature runner in his offense, and should catch some footballs out of the backfield; he still holds RB2 status at this time.
Just don’t expect anything more than he’s produced in recent years.
