    The featured back is no longer in vogue with NFL teams. Instead, more offenses are using a two-pronged attack when it comes to their run game. "Looking back at our history, it has always been a part of what we've done," Colts Head Coach Jim Caldwell said of using two running backs. "The years when we've been really effective, we've had someone who could take a little load off of the guy who was carrying it a majority of the time. We anticipate the same thing will happen with the backs we have present as well." The most likely candidate to aid Addai in the backfield is first-round draft pick Donald Brown, a rookie out of Connecticut who led college football in rushing last year with 2,083 yards.
