Tashard Choice RB IND Sep 21 '78
Coach Chan Gailey said Tashard Choice is not a "great back" and therefore will not be siphoning a significant part of the backfield reps over the final three games.
There was some concern among C.J. Spiller owners that Choice would be stepping into Fred Jackson's role. That's not happening. "We're going to get the opportunity here in the next few weeks for [Spiller] to get it a lot and we won't have what I term two great backs," Gailey said. "I think Tashard is a very good back, but to me he's not in Fred's category. So there won't be a lot of sharing of duties. C.J. will have to take a big part of the load now." We can safely pencil Spiller in for 20-plus touches against the Seahawks this week.
