Browns RB Isaiah Crowell is not happy with his role

Another week, another loss for the Cleveland Browns. There have been plenty of reasons behind the franchise’s winless 2017 NFL season.

Perhaps the most glaring has been their lackluster offense, which running back Isaiah Crowell has been vocal about trying to help improve. However, his lack of usage during their Week 15 loss to the Baltimore Ravens has now hit a boiling point.

By way of ESPN’s Pat McManamon:

“I’m sure that I can help my team more than I really do and more than I’ve been given the opportunity to do,” Crowell said. “Really, it just upsets me. Sometimes I feel disrespected about it, but I can’t even think about it. That’s the coach’s decision.”

Crowell rushed just five times in the 27-10 loss to the Ravens, yet somehow managed to record 72 yards after gashing the defense for a 59-yard run. Despite the final score, the game was actually much closer than it had appeared. Despite that, the Browns still decided to shy away from the run game.

What was even more disappointing for Crowell is that he was coming off his best performance of the season in which he rushed for 121 yards on 19 carries in an overtime loss to the Green Bay Packers.

That said, it is apparent that the Browns are looking to give quarterback DeShone Kizer as much work as possible before their tumultuous year finally comes to an end.
