Waived in the final roster cuts in 2003 but was re-signed to the practice squad for a week in October following the season-ending injury to Mike Alstott. Played in just the 2002 season opener as a rookie and caught one pass out of the backfield. Was placed on IR in November and played no further part in the campaign. Was briefly with the Houston Texans in 2004 but saw no game action. Was a finalist in 2001 for the Doak Walker Award, presented to the nation's top college running back.
