I agree, he had a lot of yards after contact on many of his touches. He did have a nice game. Seriously, he is overdue for an injury. Has he ever gone 3 straight games with 20+ carries without getting dinged up? That is my biggest issue with him. Durability. Sometimes he lacks aggressiveness in hitting small holes, but his dancing does tend to make first defender miss. It is good he has played as well as he's had, because, Denver is really thin at rb right now.
