Browns Beat: Team likely to 'mix and match' running backs depending on the opponent - [Full Article]

Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot on the team's running back situation...

I think (Duke Johnson), the Browns' third-round pick out of Miami, will definitely press Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell for playing time, and might even win the job. More than likely, however, I think the Browns will mix and match the backs depending on the opponent. One might start one week and another one the next. At the very least, I think Johnson will see action early on as a third-down back, running and catching passes out of the backfield. He'll also return kicks and make an impact right away.
