The Saints can't seem to catch a break at the running back position in 2015.

The New Orleans Saints got some tough news following their Week 14 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Not only is the team without Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson at the running back position, but it seems now they’ll be without rookie Marcus Murphy as well.

Via Kristian Garic of WWL Radio:

Murphy hasn’t only spent time as a running back, but returned both punts and kick returns as well. With the Saints losing another running back, it will be interesting to see if they bring in another player to go along with Tim Hightower and C.J. Spiller.
