Boise State running back D.J. Harper has blown out his knee in the third game of the 2009 and 2010 seasons but should be ready for summer camp for the Broncos. The rushing attack went on to do just fine without him but fellow running back Doug Martin says "We need him. We have young guys, but D.J.'s a special player. He can compete at the level that we're playing in pretty well."
With Jeremy Avery gone, the rushing attack will be between Martin and Harper. As long as he can stay healthy, Harper could be a decent RB4 depending on how many carries he siphons from Martin.
