Michael Pittman: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Pittman was told by a neck specialist that he will not require surgery, but must rest for at least another month before he can resume workouts, the Denver Post reports.

The Broncos placed Pittman on injured reserve Monday, the Denver Post reports.

Andre Hall is also done for the season, leaving Selvin Young and rookie Ryan Torain as the team's only two healthy backs on the roster. Hall led the Broncos in rushing with a seven-yard run on his only carry in Sunday's loss to Miami, so it looks like a timeshare with Torain and Young will be in order for Week 10, while the Broncos will almost certainly bring in another back to add depth this week.
Pittman will have an MRI on his injured neck Monday, according to the Denver Post.

Pittman initially suffered a stinger in his neck Oct. 20 against New England, and aggravated the same injury Sunday. His status for Week 10 will be clearer after we know the results of the MRI.
Pittman aggravated a lingering neck injury early in Sunday's game, the Associated Press reports.

Pittman has been wearing a flak jacket in practice to protect his bruised ribs but is expected to start on Sunday against Miami, the Denver Post reports. Like all four of the team's top running backs, he is officially listed as questionable this week.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Rookie running back Ryan Torain will most likely make his NFL debut on Sunday, so it will be interesting to see if Mike Shanahan spreads the carries among Pittman, Torain and Selvin Young, or if he maintains Pittman as his feature back. As always with Mike Shanahan, you usually never know until the game is actually played.
Pittman (ribs) was listed as a full practice participant Wednesday.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Michael Pittman.

2008

Pittman will certainly compete for the starting running back position, but he faces tough competition from Selvin Young and Ryan Torain. Though Pittman is a household name in fantasy circles, he has not had more than 70 carries since 2004.

2007

An argument could be made that Pittman is a better running back than Carnell Williams. The numbers over the past two seasons say as much; over that span, Williams has averaged 3.8 YPC, while Pittman is at 5.7. Pittman also has 83 catches to Williamsí 50. Pittmanís 32 and always an injury risk, but because heís so good in the passing game, his fantasy potential might actually be greater than Williamsí if the starter were to get hurt.

2006

He's not the feature back any longer in Tampa Bay, but Pittman has become Jon Gruden's "ace card", playing in multiple roles and formations, catching passes out of the backfield, playing a major role on third downs, and even returning kickoffs. Combine all that with the fact that he'd get playing time if Cadillac Williams went down, and you have a valuable player in deeper leagues.

2005

Like Thomas Jones, Pittman is also the victim of his teamís drafting another running back with an early first-round pick. Unlike Jones, Pittman's competition actually showed up in camp on day one, which isn't good news for him. In Pittmanís case, he and Cadillac Williams might operate out of a two-back set, but at this point, that sounds like an idea with which coach Jon Gruden is merely toying. At 6-0, 218 pounds, Pittman is a nice mix of speed and power, and heís got good hands as a receiver. While he doesnít have Williamsí explosiveness, heís a versatile back and a good fit for Grudenís offense. Pittman also performed well around the goal line last season, converting four of seven carries for scores, but Williams is likely to get most of the touches near paydirt.

2004

As long as he doesnít run afoul of his probation officer, Pittman should be in the Tampa Bay backfield mix with Charlie Garner and Jamel White. We donít see a ton of upside here, and his downside is a prison cell.

2003

Led the Bucs in touches in 2002, but his production was disappointingly average (only 3.5 ypa on 204 carries with just one rushing TD, just 8.1 ypc in 59 receptions). His availability in 2003 is a major question mark due to legal problems of his own making; if he gets jail time, we're tempted to say he deserves it. Stay away from him until we see how his case goes in August, and even then, don't overbid on him.
