Its just that there really isn't a clear cut starting FB on the team at this moment. Lets look through our options:
More suited to play as the bruising RB, but he has bulked up to 250, so we will see.
He was probably the guy they wanted as the starter, but he is on the PUP list. Idk what will happen when he comes back from his injury. He likely won't play in the preseason.
The guy is the complete opposite of what a West Coast FB has to be. The only way he stays is because of injury to the others. I bet he gets cut.
I just have a feeling that this is the guy the coaching staff wants, but as someone else pointed out, he might be too light.
If I had to guess, I would say that all these guys would battle it out during preseason. Norris will get cut, Miller will likely come back in the first couple weeks of the season, and Corcoran will be sent to the PS. I bet Dixon replaces Miller in the regular season if he is still injured, but the coaching staff's intention to start Miller will eventually come to reality once he is healthy and ready to start.
