    Jets RB Zac Stacy receives two carries in Week 3

    Jets running back Zac Stacy carried two times for three yards and caught two passes for negative two yards Sunday against Philadelphia. With Chris Ivory active, but sitting the game out, it was a surprise how little Stacy was involved. However, the Jets fell behind early, making receiving specialist Bilal Powell a bigger part of the offense than usual. Based on usage, Stacy is a distant third on the depth chart at RB.

    Disgruntled RB Zac Stacy shipped from Rams to Jets

    Disenchanted running back Zac Stacy has been traded from the Rams to the Jets, a source has told ESPN. Details have yet to be revealed, though the return on the deal is considered to be minimal. The last straw for Stacy was the first-round draft of Todd Gurley. Stacy had fallen behind Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham on the depth chart a year ago. After starting 12 games and rushing for 973 yards in 2013, he started five games and rushed for 293 yards last season. The Jets have struggled to find a featured back in recent years. Chris Ivory led the team with 821 yards in 2014.

    Rams coach Jeff Fisher happy with running back corps

    If the Rams don't add any player through free agency of the draft, then coach Jeff Fisher appears comfortable with running backs Tre Mason and Zac Stacy leading the charge on first and second down, and with Benny Cunningham handling third-down responsibilities. "I think that you assume...going into it now, as we finished up last year, the second half of the season, Benny became the third-down back," Fisher said, per ESPN.com. "He's just really good out of the backfield. He's probably the better protector of the three. That's some work that Tre and Zac need and we'll get that done whenever we can during the offseason. So with Benny being the third-down back, then we've got a one-two punch with Tre and Zac." Although, it appears Fisher still hopeful Isaiah Pead can also be a factor out of the backfield. "Yes, obviously Isaiah is coming back as well," Fisher said. "You should see him on the field. So, with him included, yes we do. Tre and Benny and Zac and Isaiah coming back, it's a good group."

    Rams RB Zac Stacy staying prepared amid 'strange situation'

    While Rams running back Zac Stacy leads the team with 257 rushing yards, his playing time has dropped off in recent weeks as Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham have received the bulk of reps. "It's a unique situation, a very strange situation," Stacy said Wednesday, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "But at the end of the day, it's a business -- some players tend to forget that -- but I'm still here, obviously, and I'm fortunate to have this opportunity to play in the league. "It doesn't matter if you're first string or fifth string, you just have to be professional about yourself in terms of preparation." Rams coach Jeff Fisher lauded Stacy for his professionalism and unselfishness as his playing time has dwindled. "We've not lost faith or confidence in him," Fisher said. "We've got good backs, just can't play them all."

    Jeff Fisher: RB Tre Mason 'missed a couple holes'

    Rams coach Jeff Fisher said rookie running back Tre Mason "played pretty well" in the Week 9 win at San Francisco. Mason rushed 19 times for 65 yards (3.4 ypc) and caught one pass for minus-8 yards. "He missed a couple holes but he ran real hard," Fisher said. "He overcame some things. His ball security's good, pass protection is good. He needed to get out in the routes. I thought he played pretty well." Despite Mason's big workload, Fisher said the backfield remains a committee, and Zac Stacy and Benny Cunningham will get work moving forward.
