RB injuries around the league might help us move him before the deadline. Still think he can help a team that's willing to give him volume as far as carries are concerned.

Giants can't run the ball at all, versus a depleted CAR secondary and with Nicks playing in front of family in his hometown...and zero catches thru two quarters.
