Burns is a FB and Morris is technically listed as Henry's backup. I think Morris is the safe bet at this point. If McGahee gets in playing shape and Henry is out for any length of time my guess is that he'll get the nod.
Doesn't matter who his back up will be, they're not as good. The Bills, thanks to inuries and a dumb (insert your favorite stream of explitives here) coach, are done. And Henry's, Harrison's, Stallworth's injuries leave me dead in the water. I hate having to play the spoiler's role .
I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

I'm now most likely in a four way tie for first place in my 10 team league at 8 and 3. All I ever want to do is make the playoffs, and now that Henry is hurt I don't have that power packing RB combo that is needed to win... I sure hope Domanick Davis doesn't hit a rookie wall. He sure didn't do much at all today. Plus they get New England next week. AHHHH!!!
Yahoo 10 team league, 8-2 overall, 1st place
QB - Bulger*, Brooks
RB - Portis*, Henry*, D. Davis, Shipp, Hearst
WR - S. Moss*, Toomer*, J. Smith*, A. Johnson
TE - Clark*, Shockey
K - Wilkins*
DEF - KC*

Ya this really hurts. I am in the Gauntlet portion of my schedule (beat #3 last week, beat new # 3 this week, play #1 next week, #2 the week after), so this is no good. Davis is my other back, and he isn't the poster boy for health either. And, now I've lost Moulds. I went from having a nasty starting lineup to duct tape and glue.
QB: Pennington, Brooks
RB: S. Davis, T. Henry, Pittman, T. Jones (picked up today)
WR: Holt, Moulds, D-Jax, Gardner
First, let me make this clear -- I am not a doctor. But the fibula is what Vick broke this year and McNabb broke last year (you'll remember that McNabb played pretty effectively for the remainder of the game against the Cards after breaking his fibula last year).
Maybe it makes a difference that it is a "crack" and not a break. Again -- what do I know?
not a good weekend for TN vols running backs. henry breaks a bone, garner is out with the back injury, j lewis fumbles on a crucial play, and james stewart, well he is hurt but he also plays for the Lions
As a non orthopedic surgeon doctor (and Henry owner), I believe you can play with a cracked fibula, as Kelly Holcomb is doing. However, if there is a break and displacement of ligaments (Vick) then they are out for 6-8 weeks or longer and are casted.
