Running back Bryce Brown may have incurred a quad contusion on the first series he played in Friday night against the New England Patriots, but that didn't stop him from scoring on an 8-yard touchdown run up the middle.
The second-year running back had a record-setting rookie year, but in Training Camp it has been Chris Polk who has seen a number of reps behind entrenched starter LeSean McCoy. Brown gained 22 yards on five carries Friday night, but his play served as a reminder just how unique his blend of size and speed is.
Head coach Chip Kelly's offense has been termed run-friendly, so Brown is not worried about how the carries will be divvied up during the season.
"I don't get caught up in that. I feel like I'm going to be a part of this offense and when my number's called I'll be ready to go," Brown said. "As far as numbers and reps and things like that, I'm just going to be ready when my number is called. That's the only thing that I'm focused on and I'm concerned about."
