Eagles RB Bryce Brown might lose backup job

Now that we have covered the chaos taking place at the wide receiver position in Philadelphia, let's talk a bit about a possible shake up of the Eagles' running-back depth chart.
The Philadelphia Inquirer's Jeff McLane wrote about what he observed during Tuesday's practice. Here's an interesting graph about running backs Bryce Brown and Chris Polk @1ChrisPolk.
"Bryce Brown dropped, I think, three passes. Not good," McLane wrote. "Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network made the observation after watching practice that Chris Polk could be ahead of Brown and be the No. 2 running back behind LeSean McCoy. It's not as crazy as it sounds. Polk has had a great camp and is much better at running in between the tackles than Brown, who seems to always want to bounce it outside."

Fantasy Analysis:

Many Eagles beat writers have praised Polk throughout camp. Meanwhile, Brown's talent edge has been neutralized by a bunch of errors. We'll definitely keep an eye on this battle, especially since the Eagles will be run-heavy, and the No. 2 RB should have fantasy value right out of the gate. Brown is still a nice mid-draft sleeper right now, but his role is definitely at risk if the mistakes persist.

Chris Polk could move up to RB2 on the depth chart? What about Felix Jones?
