Kansas City Star - [Full Article]

Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Bill Muir said Friday that the rushing duties will, for now, fall primarily to Jackie Battle, but he didn’t rule out a back-by-committee approach if one rusher shows he’s particularly effective.

"We basically have a plan in terms of not equally distributing the carries," Muir said, "but certain plays we maybe like with a certain player. Obviously you get in a situation where a guy is running tough and he’s running for extra yards - the kind of game sometimes dictates who that back is."

Fantasy Impact: 

As long as Battle continues to play well, it's hard to see him losing the lead role, as neither Thomas Jones or Dexter McCluster has been impressive since Jamaal Charles was lost for the season.
