Terrance West unimpressive in loss to Baltimore


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Browns rookie running back Terrance West continued his steady drop in productivity Sunday against the visiting Ravens following a 100-yard game in Week 1 to launch his NFL career.

West managed just 36 yards in 12 carries, though he did bolt into the end zone from a yard out in the first quarter for his second score of the season. He added two catches for five yards.

His worst moment was a missed assignment that resulted in a sack of quarterback Brian Hoyer in the fourth quarter that played a big role in ruining a promising drive. West will have plenty of time to think about that one with the team on its bye week.


Mike Pettine: Ben Tate 'probably' won't play Week 3


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Browns coach Mike Pettine said running back Ben Tate "probably" won't play Sunday against the Ravens due to his knee injury, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Tate was inactive Week 2 and has said he's planning to return after the team's Week 4 bye.

Rookie Terrance West should make his second straight start Week 3.


Terrance West impressive again in defeat of New Orleans


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Browns running back Terrance West continued to do a darn good impression of a featured back Sunday against New Orleans while Ben Tate is out.

West not only scored his first career touchdown on a bullish 9-yard run up the middle with six minutes left in the third quarter, but he finished with 68 yards on 19 carries and added two catches for 22 yards. He has 168 yards on 35 attempts in two games for a 5.1 per-carry average.

After scoring 41 touchdowns as a senior last season at Towson State, West will try to add to his modest NFL total in Week 3 against the Ravens.


Terrance West to start over Isaiah Crowell Week 2


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Browns coach Mike Pettine said rookie Terrance West will start at running back Week 2 against the Saints in place of Ben Tate, who will be sidelined due to a knee sprain. Pettine added Isaiah Crowell will be the backup running back.

Terrance West hits triple figures in first professional game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Browns rookie running back Terrance West made certain Sunday there was no dropoff upon the departure of starter Ben Tate due to a knee injury.

West ran wild in helping his team stage a furious comeback from a 24-point deficit to tie it. He rushed for 100 yards on 16 carries for a 6.3 average in his first NFL game. His 22-yard jaunt on the first running play of the third quarter set the stage for the rally. He added a key 29-yard gain in the fourth quarter.

He will attempt to make it two strong games in a row next Sunday when the Browns debut at home against New Orleans.


Mike Pettine sits down with Terrance West


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Browns rookie running back Terrance West averaged 2.7 yards per carry in the preseason because he often tried "hitting the home run by cutting outside, instead of keeping the pile moving forward four yards at a time," according to the team's website. Coach Mike Pettine recently sat down with West to talk about the rookie "taking the next step" and competing for time as the third-down back.

"We're pleased with where Terrance is, but it's something ... he just needs to continue to get better," Pettine said. "Some guys kind of say, 'OK, I made it, I'm on the roster,' but to me they need to accelerate, not decelerate."

West began training camp competing with Ben Tate, but Tate won the starting job hands down.


Terrance West mostly a spectator until second half


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Browns rookie running back Terrance West got only one first-half carry Monday night against the Redskins as Ben Tate dominated snaps with the first string. West finished with 31 yards on eight carries (3.9 yards per rush). He was not targeted in the passing game.

Terrance West works behind Ben Tate in preseason debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Browns running back Terrance West received the bulk of the carries with the backups during Saturday's preseason opener against the Lions.

West worked behind Ben Tate and saw his first work of the night in the third drive with the first-team offense. He received a team-high 10 carries for 22 yards on the ground. He also caught his lone pass late in the third quarter for a gain of 8 yards. It was his only target in the passing game.

Ben Tate 'will welcome help' in Browns' backfield


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Browns running back Ben Tate is not worried about the emergence of rookie running back Terrance West. In fact, he embraces the rookie being an option out of the backfield for Cleveland.

"I will welcome help because I don’t want to run myself into the ground," Tate said, per the team's official website. "Of course, you want to be a guy who gets in a rhythm. But I will welcome help."


For Terrance West, pass protection is the key


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/29/2014) Browns rookie running back Terrance West must prove he can pass protect at the NFL level to make an early splash, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. If West can show well during preseason games, "he just might be able to make an impact early. He is an explosive runner and he has great hands as well," La Canfora wrote.

After Monday's practice, West said his pass protection is coming along. "Today I had some good feedback from the coaches and picked up some big blocks in pass protection," he told La Canfora.

"And I want to be an every down back in this league, so I have to show them I can run, and catch and pass protect, and today was a great day. I feel like I started really picking it up in OTAs and during the break I stayed in my playbook and that helped me get caught up to speed."


Coach compares Terrance West to all-time greats


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Browns running backs coach Wilbert Montgomery said rookie Terrance West's running style reminds him of former Eagles star Brian Westbrook. Then Montgomery went further.

"It’s funny because Terrence West has some shades of Brian Westbrook," Montgomery said. "He can break you down with his right leg; he can break you down with his left. He has that Ricky Watters or Walter Payton lure-you-to-sleep-on-the-sidelines move that I can accelerate or I can play like I’m going to accelerate and cut back inside. Those are some of the traits that I haven’t seen in a while by Walter Payton and Ricky Watters."


Terrance West keeps applying pressure on Ben Tate


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Browns running backs Ben Tate and Terrance West both had their moments in Sunday's practice, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. But West "continued to look more explosive and seemed to dole out more punishment," the paper said.

The two are vying for the starting job. While Tate said he has no doubt he's the team's best option, the paper noted "people watching training camp on Sunday may not feel the same."


Browns activate Terrance West among others


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/24/2014) The Browns added rookie running back Terrance West, offensive linemen Chris Faulk and Jeremiah Warren, and defensive linemen Jacobbi McDaniel to the active roster one day after placing all four on the non-football injury list.

Terrance West to practice Friday


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) Even though Browns rookie running back Terrance West landed on the non-football injury list Wednesday because of his conditioning test, he's expected to be on the practice field Friday, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The report says West is "100 percent healthy'' and will be practicing without restrictions when camp officially opens to the public on Saturday morning.

West, the third-round pick from Towson, will battle Ben Tate for the starting running back in what promises to be a heated battle.

"The best competition might be Ben Tate and our guy from Terrance West from Towson, who I really like," coach Mike Pettine said.


Report: Terrance West goes on injury list


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) The Browns put rookie running back Terrance West on the non-football injury list, reports NFL Network. The reason was not immediately clear. West is slated to compete with Ben Tate for the starting job.

Ben Tate vs. Terrance West is Browns' 'best competition'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) Browns coach Mike Pettine told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that the "the best competition [in camp] might be Ben Tate and our guy Terrance West from Towson, who I really like." West is a 5-10, 225-pounder who has consistently impressed in offseason drills.

Even if Tate holds off the rookie, West is in line for substantial work.


Terrance West a legit threat to Ben Tate's job


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/20/2014) Terrance West has looked like anything but a small school rookie running back through the Browns' offseason practices. According to ClevelandBrowns.com's Vic Carucci, "it wouldn't be the least bit surprising" if West ousted Ben Tate from the starting role to begin the season. Carucci also suggests that West could see a significant amount of work even if Tate starts. 

Tate totaled 911 yards and four touchdowns for the Texans last year but dealt with rib injuries that ultimately cost him the last few games of the season. At Towson last year, West had 2,509 yards rushing last season with a ridiculous 41 touchdowns.


Terrance West taking first-team reps, will play 'major role'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/11/2014) Rookie running back Terrance West is getting first-team reps during team drills and should "play a major role for the Browns offensively," reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "West has shown power through the first level and quickness when eluding defenders."

Free-agent acquisition Ben Tate participated in individual drills the first two days of minicamp; it was unclear why he missed team drills. The paper noted Tate played through four cracked ribs last season, so it could be a maintenance issue. With Tate watching, Chris Ogbonnaya also took some first-team reps.


Browns sign rookie Terrance West


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/11/2014) Browns running back Terrance West signed his rookie contract this afternoon, reports the Akron Beacon Journal.

West received a four-year contract worth $2.796 million. The Browns traded up to draft West in the third round (No. 94 overall). The rookie from Division II Towson University is expected to compete with Ben Tate for the starting job.

West believes he's an ideal fit to run behind the zone-blocking scheme used heavily by new Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan because of his one-cut rushing style.

"That's where I get my money at," West said. "I was doing that at Towson. I'm pretty good and confident in what we're doing. It's instinct. That's how I run — one cut and downfield."


Terrance West a name to watch in Fantasy


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/12/2014) Forget about just getting a roster spot, Browns rookie Terrance West could end up competing for playing time.

The big, record-setting back from Towson had 2,519 yards rushing last season playing in the FCS. He can catch the ball out of the backfield and work just as well between the tackles, making him a player who could be a factor in the Browns run game (which they appear to be reliant on in the wake of their passing game problems). There will be competition to back up starter Ben Tate but West seems like the guys most likely to not only do that but also pick up work as at least a passing downs back.

We'd grab West with a mid- to late-round pick in seasonal drafts, especially if Tate made his way on to your roster earlier. We also like West with a mid- to late-round pick in dynasty/keeper leagues and a Top 20 pick in rookie-only drafts. 


Browns draft RB Terrance West


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/10/2014) With the No. 94 pick in the NFL Draft, the Browns selected running Terrance West from Towson. 

West will compete for playing time as the No. 2 running back for the Browns behind starter Ben Tate.

West is a big back at 5-foot-9, 225 pounds. In 2013, he set the NCAA FCS single-season rushing mark and led all of college football with 413 carries for 2,519 yards (6.1 yards per carry) and 41 touchdowns and 26 catches for 258 yards and a touchdown in 16 games.

He was the CAA Offensive Player of the Year and a finalist for the Walter Payton Award. West led the Tigers to the FCS Championship game and set the FCS record for touchdowns in a season with 42. He had 354 yards and five touchdowns against Eastern Illinois in the playoffs, and his 84 career rushing touchdowns tied the FCS record, set by Adrian Peterson (Georgia Southern 1998-2001) in only three seasons.
