News: Herron got the start ahead of Trent Richardson on Sunday against the Jaguars, and he finished with 12 carries for 65 rushing yards and five catches on five targets for 31 receiving yards. Impact: Herron had been used as the No. 3 running back for much of this season, but he moved to the top of the depth chart ahead of Trent Richardson, after Ahmad Bradshaw was placed on season-ending injured reserve, after suffering a fractured fibula in last Sunday's game against the Patriots. Herron led the team in rushing yards, though Richardson finished with one more carry and scored a one-yard touchdown in the third quarter. It appears that the two backs could very well work in a timeshare, which will only limit their respective fantasy prospects. Up next is a Week 13 matchup against a Redskins defense that came into Sunday allowing 104.2 rushing yards per game, which ranks 11th in the NFL.(RotoWire, )

News: Herron has been announced as Indy's starting running back against Jacksonville, the Indianapolis Star reports. Impact: He'll get the start over Trent Richardson with Ahmad Bradshaw out with a leg injury. Herron and Richardson still seem likely to split carries, but Herron could have a much larger role than expected.(RotoWire, )

News: Herron played just one snap on offense in Sunday's loss to New England but will likely have a larger role as the backup to Trent Richardson with Ahmad Bradshaw out with a broken fibula. Impact: It's not hard to envision Herron getting a significant number of the snaps at running back given Trent Richardson's struggles on offense this season -- just 3.4 YPC -- even though Herron hasn't had much of a role this season (just 22 carries). Herron did return two kickoffs against the Patriots and will likely still keep that role along with backup running back duties.(RotoWire, )
