Anyone in need of a running back ought to contact the Indianapolis Colts, who have three backs with 100-yard rushing games in the NFL: Edgerrin James, Dominic Rhodes and James Mungro. With James back from a knee injury at full speed, Rhodes and Mungro don’t figure to get much work. One could be expendable.

Edgerrin James played with the Colts through the 2005 before spending three seasons in Arizona and a season in Seattle, retiring after the 2009 season. He holds the Colts franchise records for career rushing yards and career rushing touchdowns.
James Mungro played with the Colts until forced into retirement after suffering a severe ACL injury in the 2006 preseason.
Dominic Rhodes played for the Colts through the 2006 season, splitting time with rookie Joseph Addai. He signed as a free agent with the Oakland Raiders for the 2007 season before returning to the Colts for the 2008 season. He signed with Bills for the 2009 season, but was cut in the preseason. He played for the UFL Florida Tuskers for their 2010 season and returned to the Colts for a third time to close out the (NFL) 2010 season. He was suspended from the NFL for at least a year following the 2010 season. He signed with the UFL Virginia Destroyers (formerly, Florida Tuskers) for the 2011 season. In March of 2013, he signed with the CFL Montreal Alouettes but was released in the June of 2013.
