The Seattle Seahawks are re-signing running back Bryce Brown.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday the Seahawks will bring back the 24-year-old runner in the wake of Thomas Rawls' season-ending ankle injury. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll later confirmed the signing, addressing it to reporters this afternoon.

CBS first reported the news.

Brown yo-yoed on and off of the Seahawks' roster several times this season. He has yet to be active for a game.

The Buffalo Bills cut Brown in September after acquiring him in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2014. The running back has averaged 4.4 yards per carry for 1,004 yards during his career.

Rapoport reported Monday morning on NFL Network's NFL HQ that Marshawn Lynch is at least a week or two away from returning to action after undergoing sports-hernia surgery last month.

With Beast Mode still out and breakout rookie Rawls on the shelf, the Seahawks will roll with DuJuan Harris, Fred Jackson and Brown as their primary ball carriers. Harris is likely to get first crack at the starting duty.

Given Russell Wilson's dynamic play the past month we could see a shift in gears from a Seahawks team known for its ground-and-pound game plans.
