Lions' Dwayne Washington: Totals 39 yards in preseason opener
Washington rushed for 34 yards on six carries and added a five-yard reception during Sunday's preseason win over the Colts.
The second-year back is in an interesting spot due to the fact that there are few sure things ahead of him at the position. Injuries and ball-security issues have held Ameer Abdullah back through two seasons, while Theo Riddick is much more proficient as a receiver than as a runner. If Washington continues to demonstrate the improvement he's shown thus far in camp and during Saturday's game, he could be more of a factor in Detroit than most backs with his slotting on the depth chart.
