Gordon was initially mentioned when Ricky retired. Then S. Jackson missed some time in preseason, and wasnt really prepared when he showed up. At that point, they put him as #4 on the depth chart, w/ Gordon at #2. They really hadnt seen what SJ could do, so they were not willing to give up Gordon.
Then, once they knew Jackson was the real deal, Gordon was out b/c he had ankle surgery, and nobody is going to trade for an injured player.
My prediction now is that they go w/ Morris. But then again, i thought Minor would put up 1300 total yards before i saw him play
