News: Bernard had 10 carries for 17 yards and caught a couple of passes for one yard in Sunday's preseason game at Arizona. Impact: Bernard had trouble finding room to run, averaging under two yards per carry. Meanwhile, rookie Jeremy Hill fared much better, rushing for 48 yards on 12 carries, although most of his work came against backups. It's been a quiet preseason for Bernard, although he's fully expected to shoulder most of the load once the regular season begins, and when you factor in his receiving abilities, he has the potential to be a breakout player in 2014. On a down note, it remains to be seen how much Bernard will be used around the goal line, with Hill and possibly BenJarvus Green-Ellis around.(RotoWire, )

News: Bernard scored a one-yard rushing touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets. Impact: Bernard gained four yards from the Jets' five-yard line, and then finished things off on the next play. While Benjarvus Green-Ellis got most of the goal-line and short-yardage work last season, Bernard was sometimes used from in close. It may be that Bernard will get a higher percentage of the goal-line carries this year, but both BJGE and rookie Jeremy Hill loom as threats to handle some of the early-down and goal-line workload.(RotoWire, )
