Colin Brown closing in on starting LG role

Posted by Chris Brown on August 23, 2013 – 7:20 am

He’s spent the better part of the past two weeks at the starting left guard position. Head coach Doug Marrone isn’t ready to say Colin Brown has earned the starting job yet, but he’s been encouraged by Brown’s play.

“I don’t think jobs are handed to guys. I think they earn them,” Marrone told Buffalobills.com. “He’s been really working extremely hard. I really like the way he’s played the last couple of days. That’s not taking anything away from Doug. I’ve seen Doug Legursky get better and Colin has gotten better too. I think there’s been a little separation with Colin right now.”

Brown is feeling good about his play, but isn’t going to expect anything.

“I’ve felt good. I still feel like every day I have to prove that I deserve to be there,” Brown said. “I try not to take anything for granted and just try to put my best foot forward every day.”

Marrone said he’s not ready to hand out the starting left guard job yet, but if Brown goes out Saturday afternoon and performs well he could nail down the job between Cordy Glenn and Eric Wood.

“I’m not ready to pull the trigger on that yet,” said Marrone. “We have the third preseason game coming up and then obviously the last preseason game, but I’m not going to lie I think he’s earning that position and earning the right to play that position.”
