Washington carried the ball five times for 19 yards in Thursday's win over Minnesota.

It was the most yardage since Week 3 for Washington and, while the numbers aren't pretty, they look stunning compared to last week's 13-carry, six-yard effort against Jacksonville. The Lions don't have much depth behind scatback starter Theo Riddick, so Washington could emerge if he shows more potential. The problem has been in recent weeks that Washington hasn't shown much.
