Ian Rapoport of NFL.com said, "My understanding is that Injured Reserve is a strong possibility. Not good."
Well, that escalated quickly. If Lynch misses more than the four weeks we already expected based on an earlier report, that would make Doug Martin a much more attractive pick through the end of the year. Still, Martin is one of the worst running backs in the league, averaging just under three yards per carry over the last three seasons (309 carries). He is more of a RB2/3 than anything, with Jalen Richard an RB3 as the preferred pass-game option.
