The Lions have officially placed running back Jahvid Best on Reserve/Injured and have re-signed RB Aaron Brown back to the roster.
Brown spent his first two seasons with the Lions after being drafted by the team in the sixth-round of the 2009 draft. He was part of the team’s final cuts before the regular season this year.
He appeared in 21 games in his first two seasons, starting two. Over that span, he recorded 189 career rushing yards on 44 carries (4.3 average).
Brown is also a good receiver out of the backfield.
With Kevin Smith’s availability for Sunday’s game against the Saints still in doubt with a high ankle sprain, signing Brown was a good move for the Lions.
Brown knows the system after spending his first two seasons in it and brings the element of speed back into play from the backfield for Scott Linehan’s offense.
