Running back Dante Brown (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/players/6685) agreed to sign with the Bills on Tuesday, bolstering a backfield that could be without Willis McGahee (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/players/6359) and Travis Henry (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/players/5505) against San Francisco this weekend.

Brown is a two-year veteran who was released by Pittsburgh last month and spent the past three weeks on Cleveland's practice roster.

Travis Henry remains unavailable. McGahee did practice some yesterday and will be a gametime decision. Expect Shaud Williams to get most of the snaps at running back. Dante Brown was brought in as insurance because the coaching staff really does not think that highly of joe Burns as a running back. He's an OK blocker and a decent special teams player, but is slow as a runner, and lacks creativity and instince. Dante Brown at least is somewhat faster.
