Packers "not desperate" at RB
Friday, March 15, 2013, 12:26pm
Thompson can't be certain that Harris, Alex Green and James Starks are the answer to an improved running attack, but there's enough there that he's not desperate. There are a couple of other options for bettering the talent.
In free agency, there are a number of backs who have had success in the NFL but come with injury and consistency issues. The good news for Thompson is that he can wait most of them out and sign one for a very reasonable price if he wants.
Among those available are Ahmad Bradshaw, Beanie Wells, Peyton Hillis, Justin Forsett and Turner. Bradshaw is the most talented of the group, but he was released from the Giants in part because he has been injury prone and had off-season foot surgery.

Chiefs RB Peyton Hillis participated fully in practice on Friday and barring any setbacks, will be active when Kansas City hosts Oakland on Sunday. Hillis had just 21 carries in three carries before suffering an ankle injury in Week 3.
Jamaal Charles leads the NFL in rushing yards per game so Hillis’ role in Kansas City’s game plan could be limited.

Running back Peyton Hillis (ankle) practiced for the first time in several weeks, though it was unclear whether he would play against the Raiders. The Chiefs don’t have to issue an injury report until Wednesday.
