    Bills' Dan Herron: Opportunity gone

    Herron's teammates LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams are both healthy again coming out of the bye week. Herron had a window of opportunity when both players were down a few games ago, but didn't really do much with his 11 carries, averaging just 3.4 yards per. At best, he's now the No. 3 back with Williams ready to return from his concussion.

    Bills' Dan Herron: Minimal role in Sunday's loss

    Herron caught both of his targets for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals and did not record a carry. LeSean McCoy took every single carry that went to a running back, so with Shady healthy and Karlos Williams (concussion) back at some point, Herron's role will remain quite minimal.

    Bills RB LeSean McCoy returns to action Week 6

    Bills running back LeSean McCoy (hamstring) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bengals. McCoy is out there if you need him, with ESPN's Bob Holtzman relaying that the running back said that his hamstring feels "a lot better" and expects to see his share of work Sunday. Thus, look for McCoy to head the team's Week 6 backfield, as long as his hamstring holds up, with Dan Herron and Anthony Dixon are on hand in the event that McCoy suffers any in-game setbacks Sunday.

    RB Dan Herron fails to impress in Bills debut on Sunday

    Bills running back Dan Herron picked up 28 yards on nine carries Sunday against the Titans, but was not targeted in the passing game. The newly acquired Herron led the Bills in carries, but failed to find much running room. This pedestrian performance doesn't bode well for Herron's chances of future production, especially with injured lead back LeSean McCoy (hamstring) possibly due back soon and Boobie Dixon on hand to split carries as it is.

    Bills RB Dan Herron making fine first impression

    Running back Dan Herron, picked up by the Bills on Tuesday, is already looking good in practices with his fresh legs and is hitting the hole better than any of the team's healthy backs, BuffaloBills.com reports. "I think Boom is going to...you know there's a good chance that he's going to be a part of the game plan," said offensive coordinator Greg Roman. "I really like what I see out of him, like what I hear out of him and he's picking things up pretty quickly." Herron knows this offensive system because it's the same one used by his former team, the Colts. While Anthony Dixon will get first crack at the Titans this week, don't be surprised if Herron gets at least a handful of carries, with the potential for more should he look significantly better than Dixon. Still, he's a dart this week until things better sort themselves.

    Bills' Dan Herron: Could see carries in Week 5

    Herron's teammates LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams have both officially been ruled out for Sunday's game in Tennessee. Anthony Dixon will get first crack at the Titans and their 22nd-ranked run defense, however the folks running the Bills have made statements this week that they won't be afraid to use Herron. He's familiar with offensive coordinator Greg Roman and had some success at times last season with the Colts around their running game issues elsewhere.

    Colts backup RB job complicated by injuries to Herron, Ballard

    Injuries to Colts running backs Dan Herron (shoulder) and Vick Ballard (hamstring) marred the team's preseason finale Thursday night against Cincinnati. Ballard actually re-injured the hamstring that had kept him sidelined last week against St. Louis. He was hoping to remain healthy against the Bengals in an attempt to land the backup job to featured back Frank Gore. The injuries to the two backs complicates that competition.
