Andre Brown runs past Maurice Morris in RB battle

Looks like from the sounds of CBS Sports, Aaron Brown did enough vs the Browns to push forward of Maurice Morris in the RB battle with the club.

Lions RB Aaron Brown has surged ahead in the battle for the third RB spot with his second-half performance Saturday against the Browns. Brown had five carries for 34 yards and two scores, and he also added one catch for 16 yards. Brown is reading defenses much better this season and has eliminated the mental errors that plagued him last year, and he has likely moved ahead of Maurice Morris for the role behind Jahvid Best and Kevin Smith. “It was probably his best complete game as a running back,” Schwartz said. “I’d like to see him get a little bit more aggressive on some of his returns, but (he also) did a nice job in the passing game.” Brown had four kickoff returns for 96 yards. Morris, meanwhile, had two carries for 4 yards and one catch for 5 yards. “I was out there on special teams – every little thing I was trying to get away from last year, I’m trying to show them I’m the kind of player they believed (me to be) last year,” Brown said. Morris could be in danger of being released if Brown continues to play like this.

  2. Jason Dawson says:

    yup, it’s Aaron. First of all Kevin Smith will play a part in the team’s role at running back, Morris is a savvy Vet that should produce some TD’s this season. There’s a guy on some site called livepredictor dot com that has the Lions making the playoffs, but is saying stafford will not be the starting QB…. go figure.
