Redskins Vs. Lions: Ryan Torain Listed As Questionable With Hamstring Injury

Mike Shanahan made the decision to activate only two running backs for today's game against the Lions. That's starting to look like a poor decision.

Ryan Torain began the second half on the sideline with a hamstring injury. He is questionable to return.

According to Rick Maese of the Washington Post, it doesn't look good.

On the Redskins' most recent possession, Torain was seen standing on the sideline without his helmet in his hands. That is not typically what a running back looks like when he is awaiting the nod to enter the game.

The only other running back active today for the Redskins is rookie Keiland Williams. We shouldn't be surprised to see the Reskins adapt by allowing Donovan McNabb to throw the ball more often.

We've seen young unknown running backs flourish in offenses run by Mike Shanahan in the past. Might Williams be the next to do so?
