RB Cyrus Gray - Free Agent
|5-10, 206||Born: 11-18-1989||College: Texas A&M||Drafted: Round 6, pick 2012|
2014 Week 2 vs DEN (2 / 8 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gray had one really nice 8 yard carry where he danced in the hole and showed good vision but he too left the game due to injury. He is expected to be okay for Week 3.
2014 Week 3 vs MIA (4 / 18 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gray was expected to be more heavily involved but looks to have fallen behind Joe McKnight. Gray's first touch came with less than 2 minutes on the clock and the game decided. He ran the ball 3 straight times for 15 yards and a touchdown against a less than inspired defense.
2013 Week 1 vs JAX (2 / 8 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
It was Gray and not Knile Davis who spelled Charles in the first half. His best run of the day came on a red zone carry in the second quarter. He broke two tackles and picked up nine yards on the carry. Outside of that he didn't do much special but he was adequate in pass protection.
2013 Week 2 vs DAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gray did not see a carry or a catch in this game but he was brought in a few times for pass protection. This is something to watch with Charles struggling in this area. There's little doubt that as of the moment Gray is the RB2.
2013 Week 7 vs HOU (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gray's only carry came out of the Wildcat formation. He took the snap, faked the handoff and ran straight up the gut into the back of his offensive line.
2013 Week 13 vs DEN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Gray made a surprise appearance on the very first drive and picked up 8 yards on a swing pass. He broke three tackles on the play. While he got into the game very early and performed well he didn't see another touch in the game.
2013 Week 14 vs WAS (3 / 8 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gray saw limited action in the fourth quarter after the Chiefs had taken both Charles and Davis out of the game. His job was basically to run into the line and not fumble, and he did both as requested.
2013 Week 15 vs OAK (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 18 / 0 rec)
Gray was again the third running back to enter the game, coming in long after the game had been decided. His 18 yard reception came on 3rd and 6 as the Chiefs were trying to run down the clock.
2013 Week 16 vs IND (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)
Gray came in with 3:30 to go in the game and took a swing pass seven yards for a first down.
2013 Week 17 vs SD (2 / 2 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 7 / 0 rec)
Gray was the third down back for most of the day but he never really had any luck getting anything going. He took one snap out of the Wildcat and picked up a first down on a hard fought 3 yard gain. His touches in the passing game failed to get him in open space as the Chargers were clearly prepared for the screen game.
2013 Week 18 vs IND (2 / 5 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gray didn't see much action at all and wasn't impressive when he was in. Gray was targeted deep down the right sideline but looked to slow up just a little and couldn't catch up to the Smith bomb. The team all but abandoned the run after Gray was the lone running back remaining and he did little with the ball when they did give it to him.
2012 Week 4 vs SD (1 / 15 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gray had just one offensive touch in the game, but it came immediately following a Shaun Draughn fumble in the fourth quarter. Gray showed a great move in the open field to get a potential tackler to fall on his back, and picked up extra yardage. The fact that it came after the fumble could be nothing, or it could be significant. With Peyton Hillis still hobbled and primary backup Shaun Draughn coughing up the football, Gray could see a little short term spike in his playing time.
2012 Week 5 vs BAL (4 / 20 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Gray's day started terribly, but his long term prospects improved in the 4th quarter. Gray's second carry of the day was to be a toss left but he looked up to see Baltimore had blown the play up before he caught the ball and fumbled the exchange with Cassel. He didn't see much action until the final drive, but when he did he made it count. Gray showed good leg drive on consecutive carries of six and then eleven yards and looked comfortable catching a dump pass out of the backfield and picking up 12 yards. This was the first time all season that Gray had looked more impressive that Draughn in any aspect of the game.
