Brown appears likely to act as the Rams' lead back Week 17 against the 49ers with head coach Sean McVay implying Tuesday that Todd Gurley and several other key starters would likely be rested for the regular-season finale, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports. "Every single game is important," McVay said. "But I think [Week 17] will provide an opportunity for us to potentially get some guys healthier, rest them, give some other guys a chance to step up. How that affects the guys that are healthy that we want to be smart with is going to be determined as the week progresses. But it is one of those deals where I think you might see us rest some guys."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Brown's prospects didn't look too bright after the Rams signed Lance Dunbar to replace Benny Cunningham as a pass-catching and change-of-pace back behind bell cow Todd Gurley. However, Dunbar quickly added a new chapter to his lengthy history of knee injuries, missing all of training camp with an ailment of undisclosed severity. Dunbar is expected to open the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, leaving Brown as the likely top backup to Gurley, who is poised to take on a three-down role. Brown won't get much work as the backup, but he's just one Gurley injury away from a probable starting job. It's unclear if Brown would be able to take advantage of such an opportunity, as he didn't show well when given an opportunity last season with just 39 rushing yards on 18 attempts (2.2 per carry). Undrafted free agent Justin Davis could push Brown for backup work.

2016

The Rams are excited to see what Brown can do this preseason, as he and Chase Reynolds are likely to battle for the third spot on the depth chart with Tre Mason's availability in question. Brown had four carries for 17 yards in the season finale last year, and did have a couple standout performances in the 2015 preseason. However, carries are still going to be hard to come by with at least Todd Gurley and Benny Cunningham ahead of him.

2015

Brown was released by the Rams in September of 2015.
