It was one preseason game, and with the injuries and all, Reese was the natural candidate to get the lions share of the carries. I think the coaching staff knows what Curtis can do, and Lamont got penalized for going home for personal reasons. Ward is hurt, so Reese was the guy. I thought he looked pretty decent the other night.
If Ward wasnt hurt, I dont think there'd be as much talk about Reese right now, although maybe there would be. All we can hope is that Ward heals up and shows some real competition for that 5th running back spot.
Overall, Im in agreement that I want to see that 5th spot be a guy with some upside that can also contribute on special teams.
