Ogbonnaya will be the Browns' starting running back Sunday against the Bears, with Willis McGahee sidelined with a concussion, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

It's a promising matchup against a porous Bears defense that has allowed a 100-yard rushing game in six straight weeks, although the Browns have really struggled to get much going on the ground this season. Ogbonnaya will likely get a majority of the touches out of the backfield, although Fozzy Whittaker will likely also see touches himself.
Ogbonnaya's teammate Willis McGahee has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

After a fairly productive 2011 in which he combined for 499 yards and one touchdown, Ogbonnaya saw his opportunities decrease drastically last season. His touches went from 96 down to 32. He did remain active in the passing game, however, totaling 24 receptions on the year and that might be the attribute that keeps him employed in Cleveland this season. Brandon Jackson and Dion Lewis are both in town to compete for the third-string role behind Trent Richardson and Montario Hardesty.

2012

Ogbonnaya was signed off of Houstonís practice squad midseason last year and filled in admirably for a banged up Cleveland backfield. He finished tops among their backs with 23 receptions totaling 165 yards, and also rushed for 340 yards and a score at a 4.5 per-carry clip. This year figures to present an uphill battle for Ogbonnaya to make the active roster with the drafting of Trent Richardson and the return of Montario Hardesty and Brandon Jackson from injury.

2011

Ogbonnaya is a former wideout, who converted to running back at the University of Texas, and has very little mileage on him (two games played in two years). He finished up the 2010 season on the Texans' practice squad and was looking to elevate one level entering the 2011 training camp season. He entered training camp fifth on the depth chart, but didn't make the final cut as Houston decided to keep veteran Steve Slaton, though he was re-signed to Houston's practice squad.

2010

Ogbannaya is currently penciled in as the club's No. 3 running back behind Kenneth Darby and Steven Jackson. The second year player out of Texas could push Darby for the No. 2 role but it's also no secret that the team wants to acquire a more legit No. 2 back so by the time the regular season rolls around neither of the above scenarios may hold true.

2009

Ogbonnaya is another wildcard entering camp in 2009. He did flash some potential at Texas but the rookie's true colors probably won't be revealed until well into the preseason. We expect him to compete for the No. 3 RB role and if he does the little things, like blocking and pass catching well, he'll likely win a roster spot heading into the regular season.
