When veteran running back Willie Parker joined the Redskins after the acquisition of Larry Johnson, it was believed that one of the two men could end up being cut. Though that could still happen, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan seems to be willing to use three running backs.
“Give them all the ball,” Shanahan said as to his plans for using the three players. “Can’t do it at the same time but when you have three backs — it’s very rare that you have just one back that the one back plays in all 16 games. So to have three backs, it’s going to make all three of them better and it’s a matter of time, but all three of them will help us.”
Of course, Shanahan also said he’s confident in the left tackles currently on the roster. So basically he’s learning well from his father.
