DANVILLE, Ohio — Devonta Booker played a huge part in the Browns’ win over the Titans.
He also was the target of some offensive tackles trying to make a play on him.
But after Booker’s first preseason game, the team is not making any moves.
Booker has been the Browns best running back since rookie Terrance West and is the only player with multiple 100-yard rushing games in his rookie season.
But he’s not getting much work this preseason and the Browns have not shown any interest in moving him.
“We’re just going to continue to get better,” Browns head coach Hue Jackson said on Tuesday.
“He’s not going to get more carries or more carries because he’s a rookie.
It’s not about the rookie running back, it’s about the veteran running back.”
Booker said he felt comfortable during the preseason but that he didn’t feel like he had to do anything to help the team.
He said the team wanted to make sure he was playing with confidence.
Booker was the Browns first running back to record 100 rushing yards in his first preseason appearance and had a career-high 1,054 rushing yards.
The Browns have yet to use a first-round draft pick on a running back in the NFL since 2010 when the franchise selected Jamaal Charles with the No. 2 overall pick.
