Furthermore to my previous point... This would be a great year for Ivory to take a step back from the game and work on his running technique,
conditioning, and muscle fitness. He'll start on the PUP and if f.e. the Saints were able to move him to the practice squad - he could
concentrate on those aspects, since barring any injuries to the RB corps, his contribution wouldn't be missed as much this year. I read an
article where a NFL RB - can't remember who - talked about how he started doing Pilates as part of his muscle fitness program. And
according to him, Pilates helped him to strengthen his core muscles, which helped him a lot in improving his running balance and also it apparently
helped him to stay injury free. That could be something Ivory could try also..?

PUP
He hasn't even put on a helmet yet this year.
When camp started, he was running rehab drills with Porter and Romeus every day.
He and Romeus have been absent from that for over a week now.
He will probably be back around week 6, fresh and healthy.

I can easily see Ivory starting the season on PUP and then coming in healthy for the rotation. And unfortunately we haven't been able to keep our running backs to stay on the field so we maybe needing a fresh set of legs coming in later.

Bell will be the preseason star. After that he will fade into obsecurity.

Hard to disagree with this logic.

Reggie Bush did that a couple years ago.

The article that I was referring to was definitely not about Reggie, but if he has done it also, then it would seem that it is something that can help RBs in general.

I mean Pilates is really good for anyone who works out, it allows you to get more reps in while decreasing the chances of injuring yourself.
