John Eisenberg of Ravens Insider looks at the running back situation for Baltimore heading into 2011. An uncertain future for Willis McGahee could provide an opportunity for Matt Lawrence once a new collective bargaining agreement is reached.
+ Who backs up Rice if McGahee goes? The candidates on the roster include Jalen Parmele, Matt Lawrence, Curtis Steele and seventh-round pick Anthony Allen. The first three have been around for a couple of years without making inroads as ball carriers, leaving Allen as the likeliest option, at least for now. But as a locked-out rookie who hasn't gone through OTAs, he might not be able to contribute much right away.
