Filling in as the Redskins' primary backup tailback in the absence of the injured Ladell Betts, Cartwright gained 118 rushing yards on only nine carries in Sunday's 24-9 win at St. Louis.

Despite the strong effort, Cartwright remains behind Clinton Portis and Betts on the depth chart, so his carries will likely remain limited.
