Maybe it's because he's been dropping those? Or maybe Kubes is holding that back until he needs it?

The guys on 610 were chatting about that this morning. The reason they came up with - and it makes a little sense to me - is that Foster is getting so many carries (what is it, 24-26 carries/game?) that the offensive braintrust doesn't that they don't want to use him up with 5-6 extra touches on pass plays. So O.D., Casey, and Graham are getting the looks that went to Foster last year.
Like I said, makes a bit of sense to me especially with Tate currently unavailable ...and not really producing that much when he was.
Need to read the whole thread before posting. CJeremy & IronDuke already covered this.
