We won't be keeping 4 RB's on the active roster with 1 on the PS. At most there will be 3 active and 1 PS.
Unfortunately, playing devil's advocate, if this double
loss should occur DURING the season (as opposed to the preseason), I would not give it as rosey a picture. We really don't know how Taylor is going to hold up under contact following recent rehab, Slaton (though promising) as a rookie is still to be proven, Walker will be pulled from the PS.....things could go either way quickly.
