I'm not hating on the kid. Again, if you looked at my posts I think he's played as well as he has for his entire career. He's going to be the featured back for the rest of the season. I have my doubts that he can be a workhorse back at the pace they have used him the past couple of weeks.
Your doubts, so far, seem to be unfounded. No signs of injury or him even being hurt.
At thus point he is proving to be a better option in this offense than McGahee. He is producing more, running the clock out better in the 4th(thus dropping his YPC unfortunately) and fumbling once every 80 carries compared to McGahee's once every 33 carries.
