The San Francisco 49ers have signed former St. Louis Cardinals player Alfonso Smith. The signing comes just days after Kendall Hunter tore his ACL (out for the season), and LaMichael James, dislocated his elbow (out for at least four weeks).

Cardinals general manager Steve Keim said the phrase that fantasy football fans dread the most.

That came from an Adam Green article on Arizonasports.com...
The Arizona Cardinals need a running back to fill out their roster. Rashard Mendenhall is going to be a free agent. Andre Ellington could be set to be the starter if Mendenhall doesn’t come back. Ryan Williams is a giant question mark after being scratched for all 16 games last season.
Alfonso Smith and Stepfan Taylor are more of backup running backs at this point. Given that...
The Arizona Cardinals could use some help at the running back position. Rashard Mendenhall is set to be a free agent and Andre Ellington looked solid in his rookie season. Ryan Williams was a healthy scratch for all 16 games this season while Stepfan Taylor and Alfonso Smith saw limited work.
