Shaun Draughn RB CLE 4 weeks ago

The Browns re-signed Draughn to a one-year contract Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

The 27-year-old Draughn is completely lacking in upside as a runner, and he'll need to compete for a roster spot in training camp. The current favorites to lead Cleveland's backfield are 2014 rookies Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West.

Draughn is active for Sunday's matchup with the Colts.

Draughn just signed with the team Wednesday, but has apparently shown enough in practice to warrant an active status in favor of Glenn Winston. With Isaiah Crowell listed as the Browns' starter, and Terrance West poised to serve as his backup (per Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland), Draughn will presumably be third in line. Although third-string running backs have received carries for the Browns this year, Draughn is likely not a high-percentage fantasy play.

Draughn was cut by the Chargers on Saturday.

With Ronnie Brown outpacing Draughn in usage the last couple of weeks, the Chargers deemed Draughn expendable, opting instead to add some depth at safety. Draughn carried the ball 10 times for 19 yards in his four games with San Diego.

Draughn did not get a single touch in Thursday night's game at Denver.

It was the second week in a row that Draughn failed to scratch the box score with Ronnie Brown handling a handful of carries in relief of Branden Oliver in both games. With Ryan Mathews and Donald Brown both expected to return from injuries in the coming weeks, it would appear that Draughn is a long way from having any meaningful role on this team.

Draughn did not get a single touch in Sunday's game at Oakland.

The Bolts went with Branden Oliver for all of the heavy lifting and then gave a few touches to Ronnie Brown in relief. It would seem that Draughn is a long way from having any significant playing time at this point, especially with San Diego's other front line backs expected to get healthy in the coming weeks.

Draughn is attempting to quickly learn the San Diego playbook so that he can be ready to contribute on Sunday against the Jaguars, but he is not expected to make much of an impact yet, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The Bolts have said that they expect Donald Brown and Branden Oliver to handle most of the work this week, but Draughn is trying to get ready anyway. The best laid plans tend to change in the blink of an eye on Sundays in the NFL, so you never know when Draughn might be forced into action, but for now, it looks like he is just the emergency plan.

Draughn signed a one-year contract with the Chargers on Tuesday, Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The Chargers are starved for depth at running back after Ryan Mathews and Danny Woodhead succumbed to long-term injuries in each of the last two weeks, so the addition of Draughn will give the Chargers a needed body behind starter Donald Brown. Draughn, who saw limited usage in two games with the Bears before he was released last week, will likely be worked into the Chargers' game plan slowly as he familiarizes himself with the playbook. It may not be long, however, before he surpasses Brandon Oliver for the top backup spot behind Brown.

Draughn was released by the Bears on Tuesday.

Draughn did not see any work in the Bears' first two games, and his release indicates the team is confident that Ka'Deem Carey can handle the backup duties behind Matt Forte.

Draughn hasn't had a carry in either of the Bears' first two regular season contests.

Though it wasn't quite clear to begin the season, it would seem Draughn is viewed as the team's No. 3 back, with Ka'Deem Carey slotting in as the top backup behind Matt Forte. Because Forte rarely comes off the field as an every-down back, however, snaps for both Carey and Draughn will remain minimal barring an injury.

Draughn is listed as the No. 3 running back on the Bears' latest depth chart, the team's official site reports.

We'll monitor the Bears' backup RB workload in Sunday's game against the Bills, but for now Ka'Deem Carey is listed as Matt Forte's top backup and thus appears to be the player to target by those looking to secure Forte insurance.
