49ers HC Kyle Shanahan explained that he’s not worried about pre-defining roles for the running backs on their roster and they will be the ones to sort things out on their own.
“Everyone keeps asking me that like I’m in charge of that or something,” Shanahan said on the Adam Schefter podcast, via NBC Bay Area. “It’s up to the players. They will define their roles. That’s kind of what’s unique about this.
“They all can do a bunch of different things. The one thing that they have in common is they all run 4.40 or less so I don’t have to look back there to see if I have a slow guy or a fast guy, they are all fast.”
