Morning Browns fans and once again, Happy Hump Day!!!
One thing that definitely needs to get on track to take care of the Bengals and contend the rest of the year is the anemic running game the Browns have been fielding. On the year, the Browns have averaged just 3.7 yards a carry, which is good for 26th in the league.
On Tuesday, the Browns brought in three free agent running backs to audition for a job. Kahlil Bell, who has played for the Chicago Bears and New York Jets, former Carolina Panthers running back Armond Smith and former Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Armando Allen.
None were immediately signed to a contract, so it’s unsure what the Browns plans were for these three. As of now it seems that none of these three did much to impress the Browns coaches for them to make a move and sign one.
Look for running back Chris Ogbonnaya to get some more carries on Sunday in hopes of jump-starting this anemic running game.

Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner revealed running back Chris Ogbonnaya has been dealing with a rib injury, but if healthy will see his carries increase on Sunday. “If he’s healthy and recovered from where he’s beat up a little bit, then he’ll get more carries,” Turner said. “We’ve been managing it, so he can stay in the game. But if he can give us more, then I think we can get back to running the ball better.”
Browns running back Chris Ogbonnaya on whether he is ready to take on more of the workload in the Browns backfield. “Absolutely, that sounds good,” said Ogbonnaya, who is averaging a team-best 5.3 yards per carry. “Anytime you have an opportunity to help the team, you want to take advantage of it, whether that’s blocking more or catching more. “I just want to do my job, so if that comes down to carrying the ball more, then so be it.”
