That\'s 5 or 6 fumbles we won\'t have to worry about.

Here\'s the story:


McAllister sprains ankle
New Orleans Saints running ...

ESPN.com news services
NEW ORLEANS -- Saints running back Deuce McAllister sat in the locker room Monday, his foot in a heavy orthopedic boot, saying he thought he\'d be able to play soon -- maybe even this coming weekend.


He won\'t.

\"He\'ll probably be out four to five weeks,\" coach Jim Haslett said.


McAllister was injured on his third carry in the Saints\' 30-27 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. San Francisco defensive tackle Bryant Young grabbed McAllister\'s ankle and the pain was immediate, causing McAllister to drop the football.


\"I felt it pop,\" said McAllister, who set franchise records in 2003 for yards from scrimmage (2,157) and rushing yards (1,641). \"That\'s why I dropped the ball.\"


McAllister thought it was broken at first. X-rays on Sunday were negative and an MRI Monday showed a sprain, a stretched ligament where the shin bone meets the ankle.


\"It\'s the same ankle he hurt two years ago,\" Haslett said. \"It\'s probably a little worse than it was.\"


McAllister only missed one game with that injury, but played hurt for a long time.


Aaron Stecker will start in McAllister\'s place, and the Saints will re-sign Ki-Jana Carter. Carter had been cut before Sunday\'s game with the 49ers.

Carter already back on Monday, I guess he gets on call pay because it did\'nt take long for him to get back.

I think they will platoon Stecker and Carter and throw in a little Karney too. I don\'t think they want to put the whole load on anyone right now.

And both get banged up. Steckler needs to start he good. We need to stick with one back which should be Stecker.

I dont think stecker is ready to do it on his own. I would like to see a combo of him and Karney. I think Karney is good, next year he will be considered an upgrade from Terrel Smith, if not by the end of this season.

Platoon RB would be a better choice in this instance. If they could carry the load fulltime, these guys would be starting somewhere.

True enough...and they can\'t possibly fumble the ball any more than \'ol Deuce has lately.
