First of all, I really don't think any coach would do that. With no one averaging double digit carries, all the backs would be rusty from game-to-game. Secondly, most teams only activate 3 rb's for each game. If you activate a 4th guy, then you have to deactivate a primary backup probably on the OL or one of the DB's.
As for whether Leon will start, with Houston still injured and Martin not elligible to start practicing until next week, I think the chances are pretty good. After this week, I doubt even Mangini could tell you whether Washington would start.
