Lions RB Ameer Abdullah frustrated with current role

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Lions running back Ameer Abdullah said last week that he hoped for a chance to finish the season strong after sitting out a pair of games with a neck injury and he was back in the lineup against the Bears last Saturday.

Abdullah didn’t get much of a chance to finish strong, however. He only played eight snaps on offense and saw Tion Green get most of the work at running back after Theo Riddick left the game with a wrist injury.

Abdullah said Monday that he “wouldn’t know why I would be” in the doghouse and suggested questions about his role would be better suited for head coach Jim Caldwell, but he did admit to being frustrated by the change.

Fantasy Impact:

This year Abdullah has run for just 3.4 yards per carry, the story pointed out. The story also added Riddick is a much better receiver out of the backfield. So far, Green has proven to be a tougher runner who has had a knack for finding the end zone in short-yardage situations, mostly during his college career but it seems as if the Lions want to see if this transitions to the NFL.
