Judging from how McCarthy addressed it, there appears to be a good chance running back Ahman Green will be active this week.
Green, who was signed last week to replace injured Deshawn Wynn, hasn't had full contact since November, but McCarthy thinks he can help the team in third-down situations and in relief of starter Ryan Grant.
"We're looking at Ahman as far as contributing," McCarthy said. "He'll potentially have an opportunity to be up. We have some injury situations that we're working through. But I like what I've seen so far from Ahman.
"Once again, he wasn't here for training camp. Things have changed in the offense since our time together in the past. We're just trying to work him through that."
