Can we suit up four RBs?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I know there are restrictions on QBs, but I haven't heard of any at any other position. And if we can, should we, and who gets cut from the 53 to make room?...

No one will be cut. We can activate all 5 RB's and a FB and not have to cut anyone.

I don't mean cut, I mean you can only activate 53 players for gameday, and up to now we have had 3 RBs active, with Chris Ivory being deactivated until Sproles was hurt. So if we have 4 RBs active now, someone has to be deactivated to make room for all of them.

Pierre, Mark, Chris and Travaris have all been activated for the past two games... So I'm guessing Sproles will be activated and Travaris will be a healthy scratch. We'll still have four RB's involved.

Gotcha, thanks. I forgot we activated Travaris as well.

That concerns me, I'd rather have Travaris in there, Sproles hand is a potential liabilty we can't afford, especially with the weather.

Actually you can only activate 45 players for gameday out of the 53 man roster. With the concussion issues these days next year you can expect that number to rise to around 49. However imo, all 53 should be active, they're getting paid regardless so why not?

Travaris fumbled with a healthy hand.

Certainly no need to rush back Sproles.
