Ronnie Brown was back in a Philadelphia Eagles jersey on Monday, a jersey he was happy to put on for the first time during training camp this summer.

But after a failed trade to Detroit last week, Brown admitted he was disappointed today to be back in the midnight green.

"I'm disappointed" said Brown according to tweet from Reuban Frank of CSNPhilly.com. "But I'm a professional and I'll do my best."

Chances are that Brown will not get many opportunities to do his best, as his role went from 2-3 carries a game before his now iconic fumble against San Francisco, to barely on the field after it. 

Now that the Eagles have been clear that Brown is not in their gameplan, it won't be a shock to see the former Miami Dolphin to get less then 10 carries the rest of the season. Brown admitted that he was excited about the opportunity to get the ball more in Detroit, where they are searching for a running back after Javid Best suffered his 2nd concussion of the season.

"I'm just trying to keep it professional," said Brown. "When I'm given the oppurtunity, whatever I'm supposed to do, I'm going to do that with a level of professionalism. Everything happens for a reason, and things will take care of themselves."

Brown said he was in a Lion's meeting with a uniform on when he found out that the trade had been voided due to a brain tumor being found on Jerome Harrison.

The Eagles have not worked out any running backs recently, which means that Brown will likely be on the roster the rest of the season.

But it is now a virtual certainty that Brown will not be back with the team next season.
