Found December 04, 2012 on NFL Trade Rumors:
Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes that Eagles RB Bryce Brown has played well enough that he will likely be a “part of the offense” even when LeSean McCoy returns from his concussion. Brown has coughed up the ball three times in the last two weeks, but has also tallied a staggering 347 yards rushing to go along with 4 touchdowns. McCoy wasn’t this effective before he went down, so it makes sense that they would use Brown in some capacity given how productive he has been. Recent reports mentioned that McCoy is currently in Phase 3 of his recovery, so there’s still a ways to go before he’s back on the field.
