“I definitely think it’s going to be a committee approach. When you have Chris Ivory, Chris Johnson and Bilal Powell, I think that’s a pretty safe bet,’’ Ryan said. “[It’s] different than … ’09 when Thomas [Jones] clearly ended up being the guy that took the majority of the things. … But these are three guys that are capable of being starters themselves, so I think we’ll play all of them.’’
When the first depth chart was released Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell were all listed as even atop the depth chart, and they might stay there for a while, with Ryan saying he expects to use a running back-by-committee.
