    Titans RB Bishop Sankey will be part of running back-by-committee

    Titans running back Bishop Sankey will be part of a running back-by-committee situation moving forward in Tennessee, the Tennessean reports.In case it wasn't apparent from the Titans having a different leading rusher in each of their first three games, head coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed the team is perfectly content feeding the hot hand rather than consistently featuring a single running back. As a result, Sankey, Dexter McCluster, Antonio Andrews and Terrance West should all continue to see touches moving forward, health permitting.

    Pettine: RB Isaiah Crowell likely starter to open regular season

    The featured back derby for the Browns has apparently been won by Isaiah Crowell - practically by default. Mike Pettine has stated that Crowell will likely start in Week 1 against the host Jets. That became apparent when fellow competitor Terrance West played the entire first half of the final preseason game Thursday night. The Browns had hoped that quick rookie Duke Johnson would rise up to earn the job, but a series of injuries, including a current concussion, has prevented him from playing extensively in camp or in the exhibition season.

    Dumping of Ben Tate has Browns calming tensions in backfield

    Browns running back coach Wilbert Montgomery has expressed optimism in regard to his backfield after a 2014 season in which friction revolving around free agent addition Ben Tate became toxic. Tate was waived in November after losing carries to rookies Terrance West and Isaiah Crowell. "[Tate] came in early and they paid him [free agent] money to come here so he felt he was 'the guy' and the other guys were in his way," Montgomery told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "Everybody [now] is out relaxing and playing. "It was bad. They would get into it, you know, in the locker room, just having words, and in the meeting room, and it takes away from what you are doing out on the field. It becomes a distraction. It's a serious thing, it's a hard thing, but then you have to move on like we did and let these young guys grow." The competition should be heated again this year with the addition of third-rounder Duke Johnson, but Montgomery is claiming that in 2015 there are no personality clashes. Tate has yet to find a team for this season.

    Isaiah Crowell holds edge over Terrance West entering 2015

    In the Browns' backfield battle between Isaiah Crowell and Terrance West, "Crowell seems to be the more talented of the two, and he has the greater respect of his teammates, who feel he is a talented and dedicated player who simply needs to learn," reports ESPN.com. Crowell ran for 607 yards and eight touchdowns, averaging 4.1 yards per carry, while West rushed for 673 yards and four touchdowns, averaging 3.9 ypc. Crowell lost two fumbles, West one. Neither rookie made a big impact in the passing game, though West had a receiving score. "West was wildly inconsistent and never seemed happy about being yanked in and out of the lineup as the Browns decided to go with the guy who had the best week of practice as opposed to deciding on one guy," the report said. "West never seemed to master the playbook, as whoever was playing quarterback often had to tell him where to line up and where the play was going. Crowell showed great talent but as an undrafted player his learning curve was high." The website says it would make sense for Cleveland to sign a veteran back to add to the mix. According to the Browns' website, West is hitting the weight room hard and plans to report to camp at 215 pounds after finishing the season at 228. West aims to be "quicker and more nimble when hitting holes and juking defensive backs in the open field," the website said. West has been boxing and doing a lot of cardio to get ready for next season. "I'm out here working, baby," West said in a video he posted. "I'm never trying to get off the field, man. This year is my year."
