According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski confirmed that Jerome Ford will be the feature back in Cleveland.

Stefanski was clear to mention that this would be the case even if the Browns brought in another running back; although, he dodged questions about whether they would entertain bringing Kareem Hunt back. Ford impressed in relief of Nick Chubb on Monday night, rushing 16 times for 106 yards in the Browns’ Week 2 loss to the Steelers, while adding 25 yards and a touchdown on three receptions. Given how much Cleveland leans on the running game, and how bad Deshaun Watson has looked, Ford looks to be a clear top waiver wire candidate as the lead back behind a strong offensive line.
