Mangini says Harrison could lose carries due to fumble

Coach Eric Mangini said on Monday that Jerome Harrison could be in danger of losing touches due to his lost fumble in Week 2 against Kansas City. “Either you hold onto the ball and get carries or you don’t hold onto the ball and don’t get carries,” said Mangini. He added that any mistake-prone player is subject to losing reps. Peyton Hillis was the more impressive running back between himself and Harrison for the second consecutive game Week 2 against the Chiefs. Hillis, who rushed eight times compared to Harrison’s 16, still managed to lead the Browns in rushing with 35 yards.

    Apparently you forgot about Hillis’ two fumbles versus the Bucs?

    They both look like they can be productive provided they hold on to the damn ball!

    I also need to mention Hillis at TB. When these guys slip — enter James Davis, seems to me.

    I tend to agree Hillis has been the more impressive back. But those two fumbles against the Bucs are a concern. I don’t know what Hillis’ ball security reputation was before this season. With Harrison, I do know that if I’d had my way, he’d have been chased off this roster long before the strong final month he had last year. And ball security is the reason why. So I’m good with him losing carries because of the fumble if it happens. I just hope if Hillis repeats his performance in Tmapa that Coach Eric is consistent about it and docks him the same way.

    I’ll agree, Harrison’s fumbles this year, counting pre-season, are a concern. However, I don’t agree with “chasing him off the roster”. He had only 2 fumbles all last year.
