Head coach Gary Kubiak added he is prepared to go with only two running backs in Week 3. "You can play a game with two guys," Kubiak said. "You don't like two.

I haven't heard too much about my role, but I'll be ready to go if he's playing or if he's not playing."

RB | Matt Forte | Chicago Bears | Draft, Fantasy
Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte has been the core of the team's offense in the first two weeks of the season. Forte has thus far turned 2011 into a statement season, accounting for more than half of the team's combined offensive production; however, Forte does not feel appreciated because he has yet to receive a contract extension. "Obviously somebody doesn't believe I'm an elite running back," Forte said.

RB | Sammy Morris | Free Agent | Transaction, Free Agents

RB | Mark Ingram | New Orleans Saints | Depth Chart Tidbit, Fantasy
The New Orleans Saints have three talented running backs in Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles, and head coach Sean Payton said the integration of the three on the field is a "work in progress." Payton said the coaching staff thinks a lot about the way the three backs will be utilized during games.

"If you separate Darren's role a little bit, if you start with some nickel packages and a little bit of this 'lighting' term we use where we're wanting him specifically on the field much like with Reggie. I don't want to say that's easy, but that becomes the easy part of the equation. So if we can establish that we have a package that involves Sproles both in the nickel and in the base, then I think the bigger trick is coming up with a ways between Pierre and Mark," Payton said.

Payton said the team tries to give both Ingram and Thomas some semblance of a rhythm, allowing each a couple series at a time on offense. "That whole time there are some times and groupings that might trump whatever the rotation might be. But there's a lot of thought given to it," he added.

He added there may not be an exact science to the rotation and the backs want to see their involvement in the offense with the game plan and how the game unfolds.

Ingram currently leads the team with 91 yards rushing on 27 carries.

RB | Cadillac Williams | St. Louis Rams | Injury, Fantasy
St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo indicated Wednesday, Sept. 21, that RB Cadillac Williams (hamstring) might return to the practice field Thursday, Sept. 22. "I think he needed (to rest) today," Spagnuolo said. "Hopefully we'll get something out of him tomorrow. I'll have a better idea tomorrow and Friday."

RB | Ryan Mathews | San Diego Chargers | Fantasy
San Diego Chargers RB Ryan Mathews has been more involved in the passing game through two games, posting 10 receptions after managing just a total of 22 catches in 2010. "You can see how far I've come," Mathews said. "I think it's a total 180 from last year. It's different and it's better."

The team's official injury report listed Britt as having a thigh injury, but Britt said it was his hamstring. That could be cause for concern, considering Britt missed games last season, as well as training camp and most of the preseason this year, because of hamstring injuries. "Going out there in that first period of seven-on-seven, it kept on getting tighter and tighter, and it wouldn't loosen up for me," Britt said. "I got a little scared so I backed down."

WR | Louis Murphy | Oakland Raiders | Injury
Oakland Raiders WR Louis Murphy (groin, hamstring) said he won't be able to play in Week 3.

The Minnesota Vikings have only used WR Percy Harvin in 57 of the 118 offensive snaps in the two games this season. Head coach Leslie Frazier said the team has certain packages for Harvin and do not want to overuse those packages which is why Harvin is not on the field all the time. "We know what Percy is capable of doing," Frazier said. "He's a big-time playmaker, whether it's on kickoff return or playing wide receiver. It's just a matter of our using his strengths for our greatest advantage, for our team's greatest advantage, picking our spots when we do that. I think we're taking the right approach with Percy, with his reps and the packages we use him in. It's the right approach."
