Barlow was nursing a calf injury, it says here on Yahoo. I bet he was just too hurt to go. But no doubt, Washington could get a significant slice of carries this week.

Don't think he's been named the starter yet. Still think Barlow starts but Washington will get more carries then him.

houston and barlow are the odd man out if/when c mart comes back and plays, washington is the only one who gives a different type of running and speed to spell martin, houston is almost the same type of back just not as good, barlow is good for nothing in my opinion, he's going to get lost in the shuffle very soon

Not so.

All signs point to Washington and Barlow featuring, with Houston and Blaylock playing little or no part.

Lots of carries in garbage time of a 41-0 shelllacking. I picked up Leon Washington in leagues where I am able, but am very skeptical that he can continue to see such a big workload. IF he sees 15+ touches this weekend I will be pleasantly surprised.

Maurice Drew type player is his upside IMO with so many other RBs vying for carries. Who knows what direction they will go once Curtis comes back.

I honestly don't think Curtis will come back. If he does, I don't think he'll play that big of a role. I'm a diehard Jet fan, but they aren't going to the Super Bowl this year. Let's look to the future and see what Leon can do while it makes sense to do so. Leon Washington has been compared to Warrick Dunn, another small former FSU back who carries a signficant workload. Mangini is very high on Washington, he certainly has more speed, burst and athleticism than any other Jet RB. I expect Leon to get 15+ touches from here on out with Barlow being the short yardage and goaline back. I don't expect Houston, Blaylock or Martin for that matter to have much if any role from here on out.

4 guys with a "small"role =

Barlow - 6 carries
Houston - 5 carries
Curtis Martin - 4 carries
Leon Washington - 2 carries, 4 catches
Thurman Thomas - 1 carry
Bo Jackson - 1 punt
