Description: Houston running back Deji Karim has been placed on injured reserve with a broken collarbone.
Insight: Karim was backing up Dennis Johnson (hip) and Jonathan Grimes. He was not a fantasy factor. The backup role falls to Ray Graham with Grimes expected to start in Week 17.

Insight: Karim will get most of his work on special teams. He could start to see some snaps in the offense as the weeks go on, but he doesn't have any real value.

Description: Even though he's not a lock to be active this week, Jaguars RB/KR Deji Karim is ready for game action with a "new contraption" protecting his thumb. SOURCE: FLORIDA TIMES-UNION
Insight: Even if Karim was active, he wouldn't see much playing time behind MJD and Rashad Jennings.

Description: The Jaguars signed sixth-round rookie RB Deji Karim to a four-year, $1.9 million contract that includes a $110,000 signing bonus. SOURCE: NATIONAL FOOTBALL POST
Insight: After rushing for close to 1,700 yards and 18 TDs at Southern Illinois in 2009, Karim posted an impressive 4.37 forty and a 43-inch vertical at his pro day. He was the talk of OTAs and has a very good shot at beating out Rashad Jennings for the backup job. MJD owners should keep an eye on him if he ends up winning the job.
