Rhythm at running back has been an issue for me all season. Terrance West remains the back who’s had the most carries in a game, with 13 on opening day in Tampa Bay.
A 15-yard gain? To the bench. A seven-yard conversion? To the bench. A 10-yard gain? Yield to McCluster.
Andrews was excellent as a single back, lined up eight yards deep. That’s how six of his runs started, and those produced 53 yards. His four carries with a tight end or fullback in front of him produced four yards.
It was a very good showing by Andrews.
The Titans had West on the inactive list, but Andrews could soon face a challenge from rookie David Cobb, another strong back. Cobb is eligible to return to play on Nov. 8 in New Orleans after spending time on injured reserve. Cobb very well may be the type of runner the Titans give the ball more to, and is worth an add if you're struggling at the position, but right now the Titans seem happy with a rotation.
