Until Sunday, it seemed Browns coach Eric Mangini wanted Harrison to be the team's top running back. Regardless of Hillis' early production, Mangini told reporters a few weeks ago, in the aftermath of hotshot rookie Montario Hardesty's tearing his ACL, that he expected Harrison to seize the opportunity. In Week 1, Harrison and Hillis split the carries. In Week 2, Harrison got double the touches of Hillis, but did little with them. Leading up to Sunday's game, Harrison was dealing with a thigh injury, missed a few practices, and then on Sunday morning was ruled out for the game.
For Eric's take on the Browns' running back situation, his thoughts on Sam Bradford and more, you must be an ESPN Insider.
