Foreman should help keep Lamar Miller’s workload in check


  • Lamar Miller’s average yards after contact per carry improved greatly during games in which he carried the ball between 15 and 19 times, where he averaged 2.44 yards after contact per carry.
  • In games in which Miller carried the ball 14 or less, or 20 or more times, he averaged less than 1.9 yards after contact per carry.
  • As Miller’s backup in 2016, Alfred Blue forced 13 missed tackles on 116 touches, for a 26.3 elusive rating, which tied for 43rd among NFL running backs.
  • Third-round draft pick D’Onta Foreman figures to be an upgrade over incumbent backup Blue. For the Texas Longhorns in 2016, Foreman forced 65 missed tackles on 330 touches, for an elusive rating of 69.6, which ranked third among Big-12 running backs.
