Default Gary Russell at RB

Below is an article on Gary Russell. What do you all believe his chances of playing significant minutes are this season?

I think his chances are very slim unless someone ahead of him gets hurt.
Gary will probably need a couple of these before the years over. I just hope he keeps working hard and waits for his chance.

I think Gary has potential, but if Mendenhall is everything we have heard he is, it will be awhile before he sniffs the field. He's got me curious, but not enough to take away playing time from FWP or Mendenhall.

one thing's certain, I feel a lot better about potential running back injuries this year.

gary has potential, and I hope they play him to run out the clock a lot this season

after teams watch what he can do we may get a good offer for him

It all depends on what he shows in preseason.

I think he will get limited playing time unless injuries come into force but is handy to have as a back up.

I don't think there was better value at that pick unless you trade down. But for who? And who are you gonna trade with?

I don't think russell will see alot of playing time but he could be used for trade bait on down the road.

Russell adds nice depth at the position. with a year under his belt he may get some playing time. Or he may stay on the inactive list. Depends on the numbers.
