RB - FA
Week 3 Outlook
Mack Brown filled in for the injured Robert Kelley and rushed for 82 yards on eight carries on Sunday. He also caught a pass for a loss of two yards.
Brown filled in nicely for the Redskins, and if Kelley were unable to play in Week 17 Brown would likely be used as the lead back on first and second downs with Chris Thompson maintaining his third-down role.
Washington Redskins RB Mack Brown carried the ball 19 times for 149 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday night's preseason finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
With all of the uncertainties surrounding the depth of Washington's running back corps, Brown made a case for himself to emerge as the No. 3 rusher over Robert Kelley in the preseason finale. Keith Marshall was placed on season-ending injured reserve this week which translates to Kelley all but winning the No. 3 job. Brown may end up on the practice squad, but don't be surprised of he is called into action if Washington is in need of a rusher at some point in 2016.
