It sounds like Rams RB Isaiah Pead has a chance to start in 2013 after barely getting off the bench last season.
“He just didn’t get a chance because of the other two,” HC Jeff Fisher said, referring to Steven Jackson and Daryl Richardson. “But he’ll get his opportunity this year. ... He’s got a chance to make a lot of big plays for us.”
Pead missed almost all of the spring practice period because his college (Cincinnati) was on the quarter system, meaning its school year ended late. As a result, NFL rules didn’t make Pead available to the Rams until June other than the post-draft minicamp.
We're expecting a Richardson/Pead RBBC in St. Louis.
