Well, this explains some of it...however, given that Bennett did fairly well, I wonder if we'll see another RBBC next week?
Moore leaves with sprained right wrist
November 6, 2005
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota Vikings running back Mewelde Moore left Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions in the fourth quarter with a sprained right wrist.
Moore left with 49 yards on 11 carries and his return was questionable.
He split carries on Sunday with Michael Bennett, who entered training camp as the starter, but lost his job to Moore early in the season due to injuries and ineffectiveness. Bennett looked sharp Sunday, making crisp cuts and catching a 5-yard shovel pass from Brad Johnson for a touchdown in the second quarter.
Moore also left the game for a brief period in the first quarter with an injured elbow. That opened the door for Bennett, who rushed for 27 yards on three carries on the Vikings' opening possession.
Moore also returned punts on Sunday and was replaced by receiver Nate Burleson in the fourth quarter.
