Brown Set to Be the Backup to Slaton if All Goes as Planned

The Houston Chronicle reports today that the Texans backup RB spot looks to be Chris Browns’ to lose this year at camp:

To follow No. 20, No. 22 must first overcome No. 21.

For No. 22 Chris Brown, the backup running back job behind No. 20 Steve Slaton is his to lose to No. 21 Ryan Moats — all Brown has to do is stay healthy.

After missing all of last season with a back injury, Brown, 28, spent the offseason regaining his strength and preparing to prove himself in training camp.

“During the offseason, I made sure I went out and did everything I possibly could because I knew it was my job to get my body ready to go,” said Brown (6-3, 234 pounds). “I didn’t want to have to look back and say, ‘Well, if I would’ve done this, I might’ve been ready to go.’”

In his six years with the Tennessee Titans, Brown was plagued by injuries and never played a full season. He had a career year in 2004, averaging 4.9 yards per carry and 97 yards per game, but missed five games because of injuries. In 54 games with the Titans, he rushed for 4.3 yards per carry and scored 16 touchdowns.
