Browns | Team working on injury settlement with W. Green

Sat, 02 Sep 2006 18:57:56 -0700

Patrick McManamon, of the Akron Beacon Journal, reports the Cleveland Browns placed RB William Green (quad) on Injured Reserve earlier Saturday, Sept. 2, but it may not last for long. The team is trying to work out an injury settlement with Green that would allow him to be released. There's a chance he could return following the settlement, but it's not likely. Green and RB Lee Suggs were beaten out by RB Jason Wright. The Browns tried to trade Green and Suggs all last week, but the efforts were for naught. Nobody would take Green, because he has two strikes under the league's substance-abuse policy, and a third means a year's suspension.

Browns | Green currently No. 2 RB; nothing guaranteed

Mon, 14 Aug 2006 17:37:40 -0700

Tom Withers, of the Associated Press, reports the trade of RB Lee Suggs to the New York Jets by the Cleveland Browns means Browns' RB William Green is currently the team's No. 2 running back. "That's just the business of the NFL," Green said following practice. "It really doesn't make a difference to me." A year after he rushed for just 78 yards on 20 carries and spent most of the season covering kicks on special teams, Green's playing time is still not guaranteed. Head coach Romeo Crennel said the Suggs trade doesn't give Green an edge.

Thu, 10 Aug 2006 22:44:00 -0700

The Eagles have moved Fraley to a backup role at guard. Because the Eagles are concerned about the depth and health of their running backs, rumors have surfaced that they might be willing to trade Fraley for a running back.

Browns | Team to stage intriguing battle at backup running back

Sun, 04 Jun 2006 08:12:23 -0700

Mary Kay Cabot, of the Plain Dealer, reports Cleveland general manager Phil Savage said the team's competition at backup running back behind RB Reuben Droughns is one of the most intriguing on the team. It features RBs Lee Suggs, William Green, Jason Wright and rookie Jerome Harrison. "Lee and William both look good and have worked extremely hard in the off-season," Savage said. "William is really well-liked and well-respected here because of how he's conducted himself for the past 1 1/2 years." He said Suggs must prove he can stay healthy. Savage also said undrafted rookie RB Chris Barclay of Wake Forest is intriguing.

Browns | W. Green No. 2 running back for now

Thu, 04 May 2006 06:25:40 -0700

Steve Doerschuk, of the Canton Repository, reports Cleveland Browns general manager Phil Savage said Browns RB William Green will remain the team's primary backup at running back heading into minicamp. "I think William is the incumbent as the second-string tailback," Savage said on a WTAM-AM draft show. "Someone's going to have to beat him out. The drafting of RB Jerome Harrison probably doesn't effect William Green as much as it would Lee Suggs or Jason Wright. Suggs, Wright and Harrison are slated to be third-down backs." Head Coach Romeo Crennel seems intent on keeping RB Reuben Droughns fresher in 2006. Droughns carried a franchise-record 309 times in 2005.
