Per Pro Football Talk, Los Angeles Rams running back Malcolm Brown has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of Monday’s matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

Brown returns to the Rams backfield after spending six seasons there to start his career before departing for Miami in 2021. Los Angeles ranks 29th in the NFL in yards per rushing attempt as Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson Jr. have struggled out of the gate this season.

Brown may have been brought up for some goal-line work. Neither back is known for having a nose for the end zone, while Brown mustered ten touchdowns in his final two seasons with the Rams. Don’t be surprised if the 29-year-old finds himself in the end zone on Monday night.

In 2021 with the Dolphins, Brown attempted 33 rushes for 125 yards and a touchdown.
