Screw It, I'm Starting Josh Morgan

Jack MeoffCorrespondent ISeptember 26, 2008

Now, with his weight rising, Bryant Johnson is a game time decision. He is suffering the same hamstring problem that plagued him throughout the preseason, and they’re playing the Saints this week.

He may not even get the start but Johnson is a game time decision with a bad hamstring, and even if he does start, he might not finish. Morgan has the talent to keep him on the bench for the rest of the season.

He's not a sure thing by any means, but what the hell?
Don't start him unless you're ready to gamble, but if you have the roster space to stash him, stash him.

Here are two more I’d keep an eye on:

Rudi Johnson

He’s on the bye this week, but he looked rejuvenated against the 49ers last week. On top of which, he caught more passes than I’ve seen him catch in his entire career, and looked good doing it. Definitely worth a flier if you’re in search of RB depth.

Trent Edwards

Look at his stats. Then take a look at his schedule.
