The Achilles injury took a lot of his explosiveness. Yes he was drafted to be our future back but after the injury he wasn't playing well. I mean even this preseason he wasn't doing well. When he faced the Bucs, I guess the light switch came on. It happens. Look at CJ Spiller, dude looked like a bust to looking like a top 5 back.
Brown did well in preseason. Well enough to warrant them to cut DJ Ware who had the 3rd spot locked up for a while.
