OC Justin Outten: “With Melvin Gordon he’s going to carry the load obviously."
Otten went on to say, "We’ll have a mix of Mike Boone and after that we’ve got to figure out who can spell and who feels best in that position. But we trust Melvin going forward here.” Gordon is dealing with a neck injury and has been limited, so it's a least a little unclear how much the other backs will see the field. Boone had three carries and a catch and is probably worth a pickup but his workload is a question until we see more. Murray was just signed and is coming off a 57-yard, one-TD performance with the Saints in Week 4 and could also get carries at some point.
