Rainey sees action for Cleveland Sunday

Lucas Aulbach

Former WKU running back Bobby Rainey made his regular season debut in the NFL Sunday with the Cleveland Browns.

Rainey, in his second season as an NFL running back, returned all four kickoffs for Cleveland, for a total of 103 yards.

The Browns lost to the Miami Dolphins 23-10.

Rainey was a member of the Baltimore Ravens last season, spending time on the active roster and practice squad before being placed on the injured reserve list in November, ending his season. He was released by the Ravens and signed by Cleveland before the start of the season.

The running back was a record-setter at WKU — his school record 1,695 rushing yards in a season was broken by Antonio Andrews last year, while his career mark of 4,523 total rushing yards is still a school record.
