Some team out there is going to get a very serviceable back. I personally like Wood more because he seems to have some Foster in him with his running style.

Wood will be the #3 back, did you see some of his catches out of the backfield as well?

Default Re: The backup RB battle

I think Kubiak keeps all 4 backs.

Foster
Tate
Karim
Wood

Foster is uncertain, Tate is injury prone, Karim is serviceable and will return kicks and punts and Wood is a rising star...

I think before this season ends, we are gonna see Wood on the field with the starters...

If RBs are as good as we think, would this allow Gary to reduce WRs?

We didn't do it much last season but didn't Arian split out wide a few times in 2011?

He wont keep fewer that 5 WR's , they have kept 6 in the past .....


That 3rd QB makes it hard to keep 4 RB's while maintaining balance at other positions.


They may open a roster spot by placing someone on IR - one of the draft picks that didn't show much but that they would be hesitant to cut , be it an OLB or B.WIlliams at OT.

I really like Cierre Wood and think this is the perfect team for him. His talent has been displayed too much already for him to make it to the practice squad. I hope the Texans keep him on the active roster because Tate staying healthy worries me along with Foster's back. They may try and sign Dennis Johnson to the practice squad if he clears. A lot of tough decisions this year. I think the Texans have rid themselves of the expansion label for good.

And Gardner(?) #66 gets a pass for a blatant shove in the back. I can't believe the zebras missed that. I know the coaches din't.

I don't think Wood makes it past Dallas on the waiver wire He dominated them. I'm against waiving Wood for Karim. OK, Karim has a little experience and special teams under his belt. If he has to play RB for you at any point, you're screwed. Wood changed my mind last night. He should be kept.

I don't know who is right but Bob Allen says Wood is in and Karim is out: From the 53 man thread:

I've learned that Deji Karim has been waived
