True... but... AP came back in 7 months.

Of course, Lattimore's knee was more severe.

Then again, it was more severe, because it was more than one ligament, but all of the ligaments should heal at the same rate (I think). Ergo, maybe he is indeed ready by October.

Anyway, I understand your point: if they do draft Lattimore, then "someone" needs to be brought in to start for the first half of the season (or possibly the entire season).

I would be very happy to hear of us using FA to sign a big name back, its just what we need

The Steelers could really use a surprise running back like Alfred Morris to appear in the 6th round, but that just doesn't happen often.
