Giants released RB Ryan Torain.
27-year-old Torain was beaten out for a roster spot by seventh-round flier pick Michael Cox. Torain is clearly on his last legs in the pros. Sat, Aug 31, 2013 09:59:00 PM

The next running back into the game following Andre Brown's Thursday night injury was Ryan Torain.

As ESPN New York notes, it's "not clear-cut" who will be David Wilson's backup while Brown (leg) rehabs. Reporter Dan Graziano does say he knows the Giants like Torain as a pass protector. It's possible he'll start off ahead of seventh-round rookie Michael Cox and speedy Da'Rel Scott, but we wouldn't waste too much time handcuffing Wilson. Torain has been one of the most injury-prone players in the league throughout his career and Brown could be back in a month.
Fri, Aug 30, 2013 02:22:00 PM

Giants re-signed RB Ryan Torain to a one-year, $715,000 contract.

The Giants declined to tender Torain a contract on Monday, but they've brought him back for the league minimum. He's just a camp body.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 05:20:00 PM

Giants declined to tender RB Ryan Torain, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Torain is still only 26, but persistent injuries have sapped his burst and he's likely not long for the league. In two appearances with the G-Men last year, Torain didn't earn a carry. He might get a shot in someone's camp.
Mon, Mar 11, 2013 02:16:00 PM

Giants agreed to terms with RB Ryan Torain.

Torain has been out of the league since the Redskins cut him on the heels of a 3.4 YPC average last December. He's a power back similar to Andre Brown while Kregg Lumpkin is a superior receiver and special teamer. Torain is the better bet to see carries as the third back in the Giants committee, but he's not yet on the fantasy radar. S Selvish Capers was waived in a corresponding move.
Tue, Nov 27, 2012 05:45:00 PM

The Giants are expected to sign free agent RB Ryan Torain "at some point in the near future."

Torain was bypassed in favor of Kregg Lumpkin Tuesday, but it sounds like the Giants liked what they saw from both players. Torain would only run into fantasy value if Ahmad Bradshaw and David Wilson both go down with injuries.
Tue, Nov 27, 2012 03:34:00 PM

In addition to Joseph Addai, the Giants worked out free agent RBs Ryan Torain, Mewelde Moore, and Kregg Lumpkin on Tuesday.

It's the first sign of interest in Torain that we've seen since the Redskins waived him in December of 2011. The workouts seem to suggest the Giants have at least mild concern about Ahmad Bradshaw's (neck) availability for Week 12 after the bye.

Ryan Torain passed through waivers unclaimed.

It's not a surprise. Mike Shanahan has been Torain's biggest fan for years, but not even he could stomach the blatant ineffectiveness Torain has shown of late. In eight games with the Redskins, he averaged 3.4 yards per carry, getting passed on the depth chart by Roy Helu and Evan Royster. Torain is now free to sign with any team.

Redskins waived RB Ryan Torain.

Last year's leading rusher, Torain had posted just 65 total yards since his 135-yard performance versus the Rams in Week 4. The injury-prone Torain entered the season as the third-stringer and was recently passed by rookie Evan Royster. Potential playoff teams such as the Lions, Titans, and Cowboys could use depth at tailback, though Torain's per-carry average of 3.4 yards isn't promising.
Tue, Dec 27, 2011 01:38:00 PM

Ryan Torain played on 14-of-64 snaps in the Week 16 loss to the Vikings.

Even with both Tim Hightower (injured reserve, knee) and Roy Helu (knee, toe) sidelined, Torain barely played. He gained eight yards on four carries and is averaging 1.6 yards per carry on his last four attempts. Torain's NFL career is quickly slipping through his fingers.
Tue, Dec 27, 2011 10:48:00 AM

Coach Mike Shanahan confirmed that Ryan Torain is now behind Evan Royster on the depth chart.

Torain was not injured last week when he was inactive against the Patriots. "Ryan was not going to play unless something happened to the two running backs," Shanahan said Monday. With Tim Hightower (knee) possibly back next year, Torain is staring at the chopping block this offseason.
Tue, Dec 13, 2011 10:33:00 AM

Redskins declared RB Ryan Torain, WR Terrence Austin, SS LaRon Landry, OLB Markus White, OL Erik Cook, DL Chris Baker, and DT Kentwan Balmer inactive for Week 14 against New England.

Torain's inactivity should give Roy Helu owners a bit more confidence. Reed Doughty will start for Landry at strong safety. The Skins are otherwise healthy.
Sun, Dec 11, 2011 11:36:00 AM

Ryan Torain did not receive a touch in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.

He didn't even play a snap on offense. When starter Roy Helu needed a break, rookie Evan Royster got the call. Torain, who started the previous two games, now looks like a third-stringer.
Sun, Nov 27, 2011 07:40:00 PM

Ryan Torain's hold on the starting job is "tenuous at best," according to the Washington Post.

Torain has started the last two games, but got less carries than both Tashard Choice and Roy Helu yesterday. It's obvious that the Redskins go into games with no real plan for their backfield, simply dividing carries based on feel. Until we achieve some clarity, no Redskin running back can be trusted in fantasy.
Mon, Nov 21, 2011 09:50:00 AM

Ryan Torain rushed five times for four yards and added one catch for two yards in Sunday's overtime loss to the Cowboys.

Torain started, but ended up with less touches than both Roy Helu and Tashard Choice. Over his last six games, Torain has a total of 36 carries for 57 yards and no touchdowns. If Mike Shanahan properly evaluated talent, Torain would be pinned to the bench in favor of Roy Helu. But we can't count on that happening, so this will remain a three-headed backfield devoid of fantasy value.
