Detroit Lions running back Ameer Abdullah set some time aside during his team's Week 9 bye to reflect upon the first half of his rookie season.
Abdullah is the leading rusher on a 1-7 team with 225 yards on 63 carries (3.6 yards per carry). The Lions struggle to run the ball in general (69.6 rushing yards per game, last in NFL), so the young back is naturally frustrated with how his first eight games as a professional have gone.
