Brown spent his first five seasons with the Titans where he ran for a career-best 1,067 yards in 2004. He had 851 yards rushing the next season but missed 15 games over his final two seasons in Tennessee with various injuries.
He said sitting out all of last season was difficult, but that his desire to help the team made his rehabilitation easier.
"That was a long road," he said. "But one thing I knew was that I was determined to get back. I knew that if I ever got the opportunity to come back I was going to make the best of it. I had to do everything I possibly could to get back on the field and get a chance to play."
Brown said he feels good and that his back problems are behind him.
"It's a good first week and we'll keep our fingers crossed that he keeps going, but (it's) very positive for our team," Kubiak said.
