    Wouldn't it be in Torain's best interest to sit out the New England game and instead just let him get comfortable with the offense again and back into playing form in that 1st week? There is no benefit of rushing him onto a field the weekend of his return after being out 2 months?

    Plus what if Torain gets absorbed into all the hype of being great and ends up doing poorly against a good Patriot defense? It would hurt his confidence.

    edit: The game after NE is Miami, what better way to introduce the rookie to the NFL?

    You have a valid point.

    I thought of that, and I also thought of how the New England defense wore down in the playoffs last year. It is yet to be seen if Richard Seymore can play at a high level anymore. There front seven did not look dominant last year like it has in the past, especially in the last half of the season. If they can just get him in there for five plays for the first few games he's back it might be a great way of getting his feet wet.

      It's great news that Torain is expected to be back sooner than anticipated. The New England game is the perfect game for him to get 5 to 10 carries to see how he stacks up against one of the best teams in the league. This could also light a fire under Young and Hall. They know that Torain was probably going to be the starter come day one. Maybe this will inspire them to pick up the intensity and try to hang on to their positions on the depth chart. They are definitely going to have to produce while Torain is out.

        I am as high on Torain as anybody but I thought i would see more posts about the loss of a valuable roster spot for as many games. True, where we once had a ton of depth at RB now it doesn't seem like so much so I can see that, but there are a lot of promising new players that could be snapped up if they are relagated to the practice squad thru waivers. We have some rookies that don't work out mathematically to make this team even tho they are showing promise. Thoughts?

          One thing I think you are missing is that it's not like he is going to be in a cast until the day before the game, and then they say, "Go run."

          He'll be practicing (with heavy protection on the elbow I imagine) for at least a month, I would guess, before they think about putting him into live action.

            Let me help you out.
            • -Torain isn't going to just be sitting in a hospital bed for the next several weeks that they will wheel onto the field right before kick off, whereupon his atrophied body rolls from the bed, changes clothes and starts playing football without so much as moving a muscle to that point. Good grief they will be working on his conditioning and he'll have slowly been worked back into practice to that point. By the time he plays, he'll be ready. Ready = ready to play, not ready to move around.
            • -Where did it say he was going to be our feature back? Saying his goal is the New England game only means that's the date he's set to try and be available to play. It could mean he plays sparingly on special teams, it could mean he plays ten snaps. For all we know he won't even be active. Just healthy.
            • -With all the specialists and professional experience on the Broncos staff, probably more total years than your age several times over, don't you think it's a little bit silly to suggest you know better than the staff does on what's best for Torain and the Broncos? The Broncos aren't stupid. If he can play, he will and if he can't, he won't. If he can play but is rusty, they aren't going to put the ball in hands and say "GO BE TD!!! YOU CAN DO EEEEEEETTT!!!!!!!" These people are professionals and will do what's best for everyone.
