A-train is having another great game in Chicago. Are we going to be seeing a nice RBBC or will one of the two have the starting job when jones returns?

My money is on the RBBC. Both play too well to bench outright.

take away A-Trains big run though and his day doesnt look so great.

I think he will steal more carries, but not a total RBBC unless he keeps this up.

What this might do though is let TJ completely heal before he comes back, as A-Train is a very good fill in

When Jone, as you referred to him as in the title, returns it will be more split carries for a while....

I think Jones will get his job back. He is a better all around back.

It should give A-train a few (say 5) extra carries per game when Jones returns. Granted A-train had all of 11 TOTAL carries on the year when TJ went down.

If anything, I'd deal FOR TJ right now. Having seen every single Bears game this year & my share of others with the ticket, talent wise, I don't believe there are 10 more talented backs in the league than Thomas Jones. He doesn't dance to the hole anymore -- which is the huge difference I've seen with him since his Arizona days. Kevin Jones right now is where Thomas Jones was in his early years in the league.

The QB situation (with Quinn at least) certainly put a damper on his value, but if you saw Quinn you understand how absolutely god awful he was. I wouldn't let him QB my high school team.
