The Buffalo Bills have released running back Bryce Brown

The Buffalo Bills released running back Bryce Brown on Tuesday.

The Buffalo Bills are now down to three running backs after the team released Bryce Brown. Brown was listed as Buffalo's fourth string running back entering the season and was inactive for the team's first game against the Indianapolis Colts. The Bills will now rely on LeSean McCoyKarlos Williams and Anthony Dixon.

Brown came to the Bills after Buffalo sent a conditional 2015 fourth round draft pick to the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2014 draft. Last year, Brown only saw 36 carries during the regular season. He rushed for 126 yards (3.5 YPC) and recorded 16 receptions for 176 yards. This preseason, Brown rushed for 89 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries (5.9 YPC).

The running back has shown flashes of ability in his career, but the biggest knock on Brown is ball security. That was an issue for Brown in training camp this season and in his career. Regardless, Brown should find a new home in the NFL relatively quickly as decent backs can be hard to find.
