Hurting at RB's. Pick two to stash:

Correll Buckhalter
Sammy Morris
Kevin Jones
Chris Brown
Mike Goodson

Pick one to drop:

Justin Gage
Robert Meachem

Im thinking Buckhalter, Morris, and smell ya Meachem. But Jones has more upside, no?

Kevin Jones has to be at the top of your list. If Forte goes down he is an RB2... reports from OTA's and camp indicate he has fully recovered from the ACL issue.

I don't like the upside of the others... are James Davis or Bernard Scott available? If so, they only have a decaying Jamal Lewis and Benson ahead of them (yawn!!!) until the become the man in their respective systems.

James Davis not available. Bernard Scott is available.

Scott probably has a quicker path to a starting position.

Is Scott really next in line? Ive seen depth charts that don't even show him.

Neither is Kevin Jones. Wherever these reports are coming from that he looks great must be from somebody's basement. Too much of a Bears fan for my own good. I think the Bears are going to roll with 4 rb's again just because Kevin Jones is that bad and has looked miserable in camp and pre-season. No burst left whatsoever. I think even Tommie could beat him in a foot race and he has one leg.

Adam - In all honesty I don't have a good rec. Kevin Jones may still prove to be the most valuable from that scrap heap. I was just providing my observations and insight from following the Bears the past couple weeks. I'm geared up for baseball playoffs so I haven't dove head first into football yet. But for the rest we know what Buckhalter is. Looks like he will get some carries while Moreno is hurt. And everything I've heard and seen so far indicates Moreno is a walking injury. But then Buckhalter will get hurt if he has to play all the time.

Chris Brown bad.

Sammy Morris. PT always a question. Billy boy loves his Sammy though. Lots of dinks and dunks with Sammy. But we will have to wait for Maroney to get hurt. But even then they have a million offensive specialists it seems this year from Faulk to Galloway.

I haven't seen Goodson play so I got nothing there.

Meachem droppable.

Gage is Ok for 2-3 games a year. But he never really has more than 45 catches in a season. But that still might provide more value than rb's above.
