I would definitely try to get M. Bush or C.J. Spiller ASAP. But with McCoy and solid WR's you should not be panicking. Hillis and Brown are decent #2 backs, not great but may get you through until your team heals. Austin practiced in full yesterday and should be fine to start

Ah freak out!

Le freak, c'est chic.

Much like Omar and myself who lost Forte and Jackson, I think you can get by for now, but hope no other injuries to RBs hit you. While not the optimal situation, you still have McCoy and Hillis to run out there as starter. Again, not great, but if KCC lives and dies by the run, then Hillis will be okay at RB2.

I do think you have the depth at WR to possibly look at making a trade. Austin, Jackson and Floyd are all viable trade candidates. It just depends on what you are after to add to your RBs.

Most likely will be hard to pry Spiller or Bush from the owner who drafted them without overpaying.
Start 1-QB, 2-WR, 2-RB, 1-TE, 1-WR/RB/TE, 1-K, 1-D

I like your's a long season and I would man the waiver wire at RB to see if you can get by over the next couple of weeks and try to maintain a record of .500 until your studs return.

Heck I have had healthy teams in years past and have found myself just trying to maintain .500 just so that I could get into the playoffs as that is the first goal. Once your in the playoffs anything can happen.
