RUNNING BACKS (5):
- IN: Ameer Abdullah, Theo Riddick, Zach Zenner, Dwayne Washington, Michael Burton
- OUT: George Winn
OUTLOOK: Washington was on the outside looking in when he was drafted. After three touchdowns in the preseason, he is now a lock to make the final-53. He displaced special team standout, George Winn. The rookie running back has played well enough to even earn playing time over power-back Zach Zenner as well. As long as Washington can continue decent ball security, Zenner may end up being inactive on game days.
.@Lions RB Dwayne Washington goes 58 yards to the HOUSE.
WOW. 🏃💨💨💨💨💨 https://t.co/YnwwvXHKix
