Bryce Brown reported to Bills OTAs on Tuesday.

Brown had skipped previous "voluntary" workouts following the birth of his child. It's absurd that a player could draw criticism for skipping supposedly voluntary May practices for the birth of his child, but so is life in the modern NFL. The missed sessions definitely didn't help a back who was already in danger of getting waived. Still only 24, Brown boasts big-time upside, but likely won't tap it in Buffalo.

Bills RBs coach Anthony Lynn conceded Bryce Brown is falling behind.

Brown missed the Bills' April minicamp and this week's workouts for personal reasons. It's trouble for a player on the bubble and meeting a new coaching regime. "I don't know much about him at all," Lynn said of Brown. "I've only met him once. ... Yes, it will set him back. I mean, he's 5-6 weeks behind everyone else. Once he gets here, it's going to be hard to slow down and catch him up."

Bills RB Bryce Brown has not been at voluntary workouts this offseason due to a family commitment.

Brown wasn't at the veteran minicamp last month and isn't at this week's workouts either. It's going to raise eyebrows, especially with a new coaching regime in town and the selection of Karlos Williams in the draft. Brown will enter training camp on the roster bubble.

Bills RB Bryce Brown's roster spot could be in jeopardy after the team drafted Karlos Williams in the fifth round.

Mike Rodak and Joe Buscaglia, both Bills reporters, immediately tweeted goodbyes to Brown after the Williams pick. Brown is a significantly more talented runner than Williams, but he makes frustrating mental mistakes and does not take care of the ball well. Even if Brown hangs around, he will be no better than fourth on the depth chart.

Speaking about Bryce Brown Tuesday, new Bills coach Rex Ryan referred to him only as "the fast dude," and said he's "not going to learn his name until he holds onto the football."

Ryan has already said he wants LeSean McCoy to be a "bellcow," and that Fred Jackson will see action on third downs. Absent injury ahead of him, that leaves Brown without a role, and possibly even a roster spot. Still only 24 (in May), Brown has oodles of upside, but is running out of time to prove he can be a consistent, sure-handed NFL player.

Rex Ryan did not mention Bryce Brown while discussing his running back depth Tuesday.

Ryan did mention Fred Jackson and Anthony Dixon as his backups to bellcow LeSean McCoy. It's not a huge surprise as Brown's east-west, sideline-running style does not fit Rex's preferred ground-n-pound. That fourth-round pick the Bills gave the Eagles for Brown on draft day in 2014 continues to look like a waste.

WGR 550 Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia considers Bryce Brown a "near lock" to make the Bills' roster.

Per Buscaglia, the Bills' top beat writer, Brown is GM Doug Whaley's guy after Whaley shipped a fourth-round pick to the Eagles last draft for Brown. The previous coaching staff wasn't a fan of Brown, as they only used him after both C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson were injured. Brown still appears to be the No. 4 back, and Buscaglia doesn't think he's a "threat for any significant touches."
Mar 15 - 10:42 AM

Bills GM Doug Whaley said there's "going to be some work that has to be done" if free agent RB C.J. Spiller walks.

This would have been an easy spot for Whaley to talk up Bryce Brown, who was buried behind Fred Jackson and Spiller last year. Instead, Whaley talked up the running back draft class and only said Brown will get a "clean slate." The ex-Eagle has a 36-126-0 line in seven games as a Bill. "We’re excited to see him come in with a clean slate like everybody else and perform like we think he should," Whaley said.

Bryce Brown rushed four times for 20 yards and caught a 40-yard pass in the Bills' Week 15 win over Green Bay.

On a day where Kyle Orton completed just 14 passes, Brown actually led Buffalo in receiving yards on one catch, which came on a blown coverage. He was lined up at wide receiver and left wide open for the big gain. Brown is underutilized as a change-of-pace back behind Fred Jackson and Anthony Dixon. He has no fantasy value entering a Week 16 date with the Raiders.

Bryce Brown rushed three times for 11 yards and caught two passes for 14 yards in Sunday's Week 14 loss at Denver.

Brown is clearly a better player than Anthony Dixon, but it doesn't matter much as long as Fred Jackson is healthy. Over the last three weeks, Brown has totaled 14 touches. He's only a weak F-Jax handcuff heading into Week 15 against the Packers.

Bryce Brown rushed three times for 11 yards in Buffalo's Week 13 win over the Browns.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Brown was a distant third on the depth chart behind Fred Jackson and Anthony Dixon. He could be a bigger part of the game plan as a pass catcher against the Broncos in Week 14, but won't be on the FLEX radar.

Bryce Brown had six carries for 20 yards in Week 12 against the Jets.

Brown played behind Fred Jackson and Anthony Dixon this week. He wasn't a factor in the pass game, and finished without any targets. The Bills continued to use a three-back committee, and Brown should remain a part of the rotation even when Jackson gets fully healthy. Brown won't be more than a boom-or-bust RB3 against Cleveland in Week 13.

Starting in place of Fred Jackson (groin), Bryce Brown rushed six times for 14 yards in Buffalo's Week 11 loss to the Dolphins, adding seven catches for 57 yards.

As predicted by the Buffalo News' Tim Graham, throwing to Brown was the Bills' primary method of moving the ball via their running backs. Anthony Dixon was held to two catches, and managed just 35 yards on his 10 carries. Brown looked slippery in the open field, but the Dolphins did an excellent job of containing him on the edge. Brown is averaging just 3.2 yards through his first 20 carries this season, but now has 13 receptions over his past two games. If F-Jax can't go for Week 12, Brown will be a definite FLEX consideration against the Jets.

Bryce Brown will be the Bills' starting running back against the Dolphins.

Anthony Dixon had been the ceremonial "starter" in the Bills' previous Fred Jackson-less committees. The title still doesn't mean much, but Brown is definitely the better play for Week 11. He played a big part in the passing game in Week 10, and reporter Tim Graham expects him to do so again against the Dolphins. Dixon will find running lanes hard to come by, as the Dolphins are allowing just 3.9 yards per carry, and have permitted only four rushing scores all year.
