The main backup once again should be Chase Edmonds, who now goes into his second season in the NFL. He rushed for 208-yards and two touchdowns last season.
What impresses most about Edmonds is how tough he can be to bring down. At just 5’9, 210 lbs, you’d think he’d be an easy tackle. He clearly proved otherwise last season.
Edmonds is a good short down or goal line option, although it seemed at times we were left scratching our heads why Johnson wasn’t in there instead? Edmonds was stopped a number of times where the prevailing thought was, would Johnson have been stopped?
He runs hard and smart though most of the time. He’s fun to watch and look for improvement on his numbers in 2019.
Foster is coming off a torn ACL in 2018 preseason, so his status could be up in the air. Certainly we would all love to see him comeback. We will have to see.
T.J. Logan should be in the mix because of his special teams contributions but will there be room for him. The interesting part with these backs should be how many will Kingsbury ultimately keep on the 53-man roster.
This offense will be built for more pass but the running game will be as important. Also don’t forget though, quarterback Kyler Murray will in essence be counted on in the running game as well with his mobility.
