I am starting to get a bad feeling about the RB situation this year. What looked like a promising unit is now looking a little thin.
Of all the positions where you don't mind a player missing camp, it's RB. It's not like there's anything particularly complex about his role as a 1st and 2nd down RB. As long as he gets healthy for the season, I'll be happy.

Im with you on the RB concern.
When Goodson and Ivory were signed, things were looking up.
Personally i was higher on Goodson, but that all appears in limbo now, and the injury concerns on Ivory seem to be legitimate, and its only TC!!!
Hopefully this guy can heal up and stay healthy for 12+ games, because im far from sold on McKnight, Powell, and the other scrubs.
Ivory was the 4th string rb in NO. Idzik should have offered a 6th rounder. Why he offered a 4th for a 4th string rb who has done nothing in this league is beyond me.
Powell will be the leading rusher for this team this year.
I do think they over paid a little for Ivory. I thought maybe a 5th round pick would be the MOST they should give. They could have drafted Jonathan Franklin in the 4th, who I think is going to be an excellent RB in this league and a great fit in MM's WCO.
