So going into the 2019 season, there’s a good chance Brown could expand his role on offense, as both McVay and general manager Les Snead have said that the Rams would like to monitor Gurley’s snaps more in this upcoming season to lessen the wear and tear on his body. And if Brown can continue at the pace he was on last season — when he was a bruising back that didn’t let defenses get a chance to breathe just because Gurley was on the sidelines — that's good news for Los Angeles' offense.
There’s also a chance that either John Kelly or Justin Davis could expand their respective roles, depending on their progress in the offseason program. Snead mentioned earlier this month that there’s a place in McVay’s offense for more of a hybrid-type running back that has not been utilized much in the head coach’s first two seasons in Los Angeles. If that were to happen, it could further lessen the burden on Gurley to carry as much of the load at the position as he has over the last few years.
Brown’s return, however, would appear to make Anderson’s return to the club a bit more unlikely — given the similarity of their respective roles on the offense. However, with the beginning of the offseason program still weeks away — not to mention that the beginning of the season is still over five months away — there’s a lot of time for something on that front to change in preparation for 2019.
