LD Brown stepping up to the plate:

Pistols Firing wrote about how impressive running back LD Brown has been in these first two games of the season. They got this quote from offensive coordinator Kasey Dunn after Saturday’s game.

“He practiced really well all the way through fall camp,” said OSU offensive coordinator Kasey Dunn on Saturday. “Energetic, hit guys in the mouth in protection, ran the ball hard, all the little things. It’s showing up for him now on game day. I could not be more happy for that young man.

“I’m just thrilled with him and his ability to protect and his ability to rush the football. It’s almost like he just said, ‘Hey, I’m a senior. I’m gonna roll with it this year. I’m gonna play lights out.’ And his attitude, the smile on his face, his willingness to compete has been awesome. {PFB}

Tevin Jenkins could improve even more:

The O’Colly highlighted the play if o-lineman Tevin Jenkins. Head coach Mike Gundy that he thinks his future could get even brighter.

“I was serious but somewhat joking with him in the weight room when there was a bunch of guys working out, and I said, ‘You know Tevin, can you name the one person in this weight room that’s worth $40 million,’” Gundy, the OSU coach, told reporters on Monday. “He looks at me like I’m trying to give him a haircut or something. And he says, ‘No.’ And I say, ‘You, if you decide to work really hard.’” {O’Colly}

A.J.Green added to Brown’s active roster:

OSU added another player to their list of active NFL players when corner A.J. Green was moved up to the active roster for the Cleveland Brown.
