11/27/2012 6:39:00 PM
Description: The Giants signed running backs Ryan Torain and Kregg Lumpkin Tuesday after placing Andre Brown on injured reserve with a fractured fibula Monday.
Insight: Torain and Lumpkin will give the Giants depth at running back but don't figure to be fantasy options. We expect New York to finally increase rookie David Wilson's role behind Ahmad Bradshaw.
 
2/28/2011 3:02:00 PM
Description: Any wonder over whether Torain might share carries with Clinton Portis in 2011 can be forgotten. The team released Portis on Monday.
Insight: Torain should have been the heavy favorite in everyone's eyes to be featured anyway. His only issue is staying healthy, but Torain makes plenty of sense as a fantasy RB2. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/13/2010 10:05:00 AM
Description: Torain had 24 carries for a career-high 172 yards with two catches for 10 yards against the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Insight: Torain looks healthy and should be the Redskins' workhorse running back for the rest of the season. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/10/2010 12:01:00 AM
Description: The Washington Post reports Torain (hamstring) is "on track to reclaim his position" with the Redskins' first-team offense after practicing fully on Thursday.
Insight: It may be wise to wait a week before using Torain, as he is unlikely to get a full workload in his first game back. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/8/2010 11:01:00 PM
Description: The Washington Post suggests Torain (hamstring) could return as the Redskins' starting tailback in Week 14 against Tampa Bay.
Insight: Torain was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, and could start on Sunday as long as avoids any setbacks. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/6/2010 6:03:00 PM
Description: Rich Campbell of the Fredricksburg Freelance Star reports Redskins' head coach Mike Shanahan confirmed Torain (hamstring) will practice this week.
Insight: Torain has not played since prior to the Redskins' Week 9 bye, so he would be hard to trust even in a favorable matchup against Tampa Bay in Week 14. (RapidDraft.com)
 
12/4/2010 10:02:00 PM
Description: Chris Russell of ESPN 980 reports Torain (hamstring) will travel with the Redskins for Sunday's game against the Giants but remains a game-time decision.
Insight: Torain's fantasy owners would be wise to consider other, healthier options this week. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/29/2010 4:04:00 PM
Description: Ryan O'Halloran of CSN Washington reports Redskins' head coach Mike Shanahan was non-committal when asked about Torain's hamstring injury.
Insight: Torain has missed three games now, and his status going forward is uncertain. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/19/2010 3:05:00 PM
Description: Rich Campbell of the Fredricksburg Freelance Star reports Torain (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 11.
Insight: Torain's fantasy value may be limited even once he returns to health, whenever that might be. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/18/2010 1:00:00 AM
Description: Rich Campbell of the Fredricksburg Freelance Star reports Torain (hamstring) missed practice on Wednesday.
Insight: Torain was a last-minute scratch from Monday night's game against the Eagles, and it's hard to imagine him playing on Sunday against Tennessee with the short week. Keiland Williams may get another start. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/16/2010 3:00:00 PM
Description: CBS Sports.com reports Torain (hamstring) indicated after Monday night's game that he will have to see a doctor regarding his hamstring injury this week.
Insight: Torain dressed on Monday night, but did not play against the Eagles. His status for Week 11 against Tennessee has to be considered up in the air right now. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/16/2010 10:03:00 AM
Description: Torain (hamstring) did not play a snap in Monday night's gamea against Philadelphia despite being active.
Insight: Torain apparently strained his hamstring in pre-game warmups. Clinton Portis' potential Week 11 return will further cloud the Redskins' backfield situation. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/13/2010 10:03:00 PM
Description: The Washington Post reports Torain (hamstring) is expected to start Monday night against the Eagles.
Insight: Clinton Portis (groin) looks likely to be out, so Torain should get the majority of the carries for the Redskins on Monday night. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/12/2010 6:05:00 PM
Description: The Washington Post reports Torain (hamstring) was able to take more practice reps than Clinton Portis (groin) on Thursday and Friday.
Insight: Torain looks more likely than Portis on Monday nigth against the Eagles, but it would be hard to rely upon either on in fantasy leagues. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/12/2010 10:05:00 AM
Description: The Fredricksburg Freelance Star reports Torain (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Insight: Torain is expected to be able to play next Monday night against Philadelphia, but stay tuned if you plan to use him. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/8/2010 5:05:00 PM
Description: The Washington Post reports Torain (hamstring) practiced fully on Monday as the Redskins come off their Week 9 bye.
Insight: Barring any setbacks, it looks like Torain should be able to play next Monday night against Philadelphia. (RapidDraft.com)
 
11/2/2010 3:03:00 PM
Description: Redskins.com reports though there is no tear in Torain's hamstring, head coach Mike Shanahan is unsure of his availability for Week 10.
Insight: With Torain's status coming out of the Redskins' bye looking uncertain, his fantasy owners may want to consider adding Keiland Williams if they have the roster space. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Rich Campbell of the Fredricksburg Freelance Star reports Redskins' head coach Mike Shanahan said an MRI on Torain's hamstring revealed no tear.

11/1/2010 12:05:00 PM
Description: The Washington Post reports Torain (hamstring) said it's "hard to say" when asked about the severity of his hamstring injury.
Insight: Washington has a bye in Week 9, so Torain has the off week to recover. In the meantime, his fantasy owners may want to pick up Keiland Williams as a backup option. (RapidDraft.com)
