Rams G.M. Billy Devaney told PFT earlier this offseason that he needed to upgrade the team’s backup running back position.
Williams had 40 yards on 11 carries Saturday night, including a touchdown. Norwood is healthy for once and picked up 37 yards on eight carries. Keith Toston, who may have an uphill battle for a roster spot, led the team with 64 yards on 11 carries.
The encouraging night came against a Colts team that usually limps through the preseason, so it’s a little early to get excited. But the Rams backfield does at least look better, and the receiving crew is deeper with rookie tight end Lance Kendricks emerging as a legitimate weapon.
