The St. Louis Reams for years had the stud running back and not much else, but in 2013 it’s the reverse. Coach Jeff Fisher is accustomed to having a ‘bell cow’ back; however, the team released RB Steven Jackson in the offseason and now will go with unproven talents Daryl Richardson ad Isaiah Pead. “I’ve usually had a guy, but that’s what the competition is about, and that’s what camp’s for and preseason games are for,” Fisher said, via Mike Florio of Profootballtalk.com. ”It’s not going to be out of the question that we don’t play two or three of them quite a bit.  We may not end up with a ‘bell cow’ like we’ve had last year in [Jackson] and previous years, and just let them all play.”
