Lions | Theo Riddick could see considerable playing time
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 15:04:49 -0700

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell will slide into the leading running back role if RB Reggie Bush (knee) doesn't play in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins. Rookie RB Theo Riddick could then leapfrog RB Mikel Leshoure to be Bell's primary backup. Riddick was the third back in each of the team's first two games while Leshoure was a healthy inactive. Riddick has an advantage because he provides the team with special teams play. "We drafted Theo to come in and have some of the effect that maybe a Reggie might do," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said. "We were really happy with him doing those things for us in the preseason. If he were called upon, we have all the confidence in the world that he can help us." Riddick doesn't have a touch this year, but he has experience playing in the slot in college.

It wouldn't be wise to start Riddick on blind hope before knowing that Bush is ruled out. Even then, he may not see enough action to justify a starting spot. Leshoure can probably be dropped for now in favor of Riddick, though.
