The NFL is a cruel league. One week, a player looks like they are the next best thing and then before you know it, they are yesterday's news and someone else has taken their place.
This can happen for a variety of reasons including injuries, age, ineffectiveness or a combination of things.
It's a tough pill to swallow for players, but it comes with the game. Take for example Arian Foster.
Foster burst onto the NFL landscape last season thanks to injuries by guys ahead of him on the depth chart, mainly Ben Tate. Now this season, the tables have turned and Tate is the primary back as Foster is battling injuries.
Now, that's not to say Foster won't reclaim his starting spot, but it wouldn't be the most outrageous thing if it happened and I think it would be fair to say Tate has earned himself a share of the backfield workload.
That's the way of life in the NFL.
