Brown had 10 carries for just 20 yards and was not targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 36-6 win at Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

For the second straight week, Brown did not find much room, while fellow RB Christine Michael rushed for a career-high 102 yards on 17 carries. Since Thomas Rawls (ankle) was lost for the season three weeks ago, Michael and Brown have split the work, with Michael holding the edge in overall production. Both players will likely return to a reserve role for the playoffs, however, as Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) is expected to return to practice this week and potentially play in Seattle's wild card game.

Brown had seven carries for just nine yards and failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Brown took a backseat to Christine Michael last week, but neither runner was able to get on track, as the Seahawks trailed for most of the game. He's a much better receiver than Michael, but the problem is that the Seahawks like veteran RB Fred Jackson in that role. Jackson finished with five catches for 46 yards Sunday, and Michael surprisingly had a couple of catches for 14 yards. Expect Brown to continue to be mixed in, especially until Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) is healthy enough to play. If you need to use Brown next week in the season finale, take note that he'll have a tough matchup at Arizona.

Brown had nine carries for 43 yards and failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 30-13 win over the Browns.

EDGE Analysis

Brown saw his first action of the season, and used fresh legs to rip off an 18-yard run at one point. Meanwhile, Christine Michael, who re-signed with the Seahawks on Wednesday after failed stops in Dallas and Washington, had one of the best games of his career, rushing for 84 yards on 16 carries. Veteran Fred Jackson did not receive a carry, but did catch two of three targets for 17 yards. Brown and the entire Seahawks' backfield will probably have a tougher time next week against the Rams, although they've struggled to stop the run as of late.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said he will ride the hot hand between Brown, Christine Michael and Derrick Coleman in Sunday's game against the Browns, the Seahawks' official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's anyone's guess how the workload will actually be split, but Carroll's comments at least suggest that Brown will have the opportunity to build on his performance if he gets off to a strong start. No starter has been named, and the only sure thing is that Fred Jackson will get most of the passing-down snaps. Even in an ideal matchup, a three-way split of early-down work doesn't sound too promising.

Brown, who was signed Monday, apparently will start Sunday against the Browns as DuJuan Harris was released Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

The move was a bit of a surprise, considering Brown is the only running back left on the roster. Fullback Derrick Coleman played running back in college and could get carries. Brown was on the Seattle roster earlier this season but never active. He has not played in a game this season.

Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Brown and DuJuan Harris will battle for "starting" reps, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

EDGE Analysis

Inked in the wake of Thomas Rawls' season-ending broken ankle, Brown will seemingly be given a chance to earn a No. 1 role, despite walking the street just a few days ago. The development is warranted, though, as Harris mustered just 42 yards on 18 carries, or 2.33 YPC. If Brown is able to earn the role, he boasts a career YPC mark of 4.44 as well as pass-catching chops (37 receptions on 57 career targets), the latter of which could serve him well in the competition.

Brown has re-signed with the Seahawks, CBS Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brown was waived by Seattle at the end of last month, but with star rookie Thomas Rawls (ankle) being lost for the season Sunday, Brown will head back to the Seahawks to help their backfield. With Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) also working his way back from surgery, Brown, DuJuan Harris and Fred Jackson figure to compose Seattle's running back group this weekend against the Browns, potentially presenting Brown with more reps than usual.

Brown was waived by the Seahawks on Saturday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brown was waived in order to make room for Jeremy Lane, who was activated from the reserve PUP list Saturday. Brown was expected to add depth at the running back position after Marshawn Lynch underwent hernia surgery during the week, but it appears as if the Seahawks are comfortable relying on Thomas Rawls and Fred Jackson for the bulk of the work out of the backfield.

Brown re-signed with the Seahawks on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brown was waived by Seattle last weekend, but the team decided to bring him back just a couple days later, presumably to provide insurance in case Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) is unable to play again this week. Brown is not a lock to suit in Week 12, but he figures to work as the Seahawks' third running back if he does.

Brown is set to re-sign with the Seahawks, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports.

EDGE Analysis

The signing isn't official, but it does makes sense that the Seahawks would turn back to Brown, as Marshawn Lynch (abdomen) may require season-ending surgery. Of course, with Thomas Rawls and Fred Jackson still around, Brown is still another injury or two away from actually having a role in the Seattle offense. He had a couple big games for the Eagles back in 2012, but his running ability is overhyped and he has never impressed with his vision or decision-making.
