Running back Ryan Torain is up next as we continue our player-by-player breakdown of the 90-man roster the New York Giants will bring to training camp in about a week.

2012 Season In Review

The Giants signed Torain as a free agent in late November when injuries to Da'Rel Scott and Andre Brown, and the always banged-up status of Ahmad Bradshaw, left their running back group depleted. The 6-foot, 220-pound four-year veteran was only active in two games, however, and never touched the ball for the Giants.

2013 Outlook

Torain appears to be in competition with Scott and rookie seventh-round pick Michael Cox for a roster spot. Complicating matters for the 2008 fifth-round pick by the Denver Broncos is the fact that he missed much of the off-season work with a hamstring injury. Torain, 26, does have a 4.2 yards per carry average over 238 career rushing attempts so he might have a chance to make the roster if he can get on the field in training camp. If he can't he might find himself cut before he ever gets an opportunity.
