Cleveland Browns RB Dion Lewis (leg) said he is not sure when he will be cleared to run but expects to be ready to participate in offseason workouts in May. He said he is prepared to compete for the starting running back job during the workouts. "I feel like when I come back, I'll come back and compete," Lewis said. "Nobody's going to be given a job. So I feel like if I come back and I compete and I'm able to do things I can do, I'll be fine."

We have to do a good job of keeping him fresh throughout the course of the season."

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 18:54:27 -0700
Cleveland Browns RB Dion Lewis (ankle) was carted off the field after suffering a left ankle injury during the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15.
Fantasy Tip: Lewis is having a great training camp and was on track to become the No. 2 running back this season, but could miss some time depending on the severity of the injury. Montario Hardesty was also a candidate for the backup RB job, but he is out recovering from knee surgery. Brandon Jackson could become the backup by default depending on Lewis' injury and would be the handcuff to Trent Richardson.
Thu, 15 Aug 2013 16:09:52 -0700
Cleveland Browns RB Montario Hardesty (knee) will miss at least the first two weeks of the regular season after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday, Aug. 15. Hardesty has had surgery on both of the anterior cruciate ligaments in both of his knees already. He's missed most of training camp with a hamstring issue and a dislocated right thumb earlier this week. RBs Dion Lewis and Brandon Jackson are competing for the backup spot behind RB Trent Richardson.
Fantasy Tip: Lewis has stood out in camp and should be the favorite to back up Richardson at this point. Target him in the late rounds if you're worried about how Richardson will hold up in his second full season.
Tue, 13 Aug 2013 12:48:30 -0700
Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson (shin) is no longer wearing protective covering on his right shin and said he is 100 percent healthy. His practice workload increased last weekend, but the team hasn't decided if they'll let him play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15. "In the back of your mind you've got to realize it's preseason and coach is gonna do the best thing for me to put me in the best position to stay healthy for the whole season," he said. "It's good and bad. I feel I can be ready to go Sept. 8 without playing any preseason. I feel I can be ready with playing preseason." RB Dion Lewis has taken most of the first-team reps when Richardson hasn't practiced.
Fantasy Tip: You should have no reservations about selecting Richardson in the middle to end of Round 1 in fantasy football drafts this year. If you're a bit worried about his health, Lewis appears to be the main handcuff option right now.
Fri, 09 Aug 2013 12:56:39 -0700
Cleveland Browns RB Dion Lewis is believed to have an edge over RB Montario Hardesty (hamstring) for the No. 2 running back job because Hardesty has missed time with a hamstring injury. Lewis rushed for 12 yards on five carries and caught a 16-yard pass during the team's first preseason game.
Thu, 08 Aug 2013 13:13:25 -0700
Cleveland Browns RB Dion Lewis could compete with RB Montario Hardesty for the No. 2 running back job if he is able to hold onto the football and show he can pass protect despite his small size.

Tue, 30 Jul 2013 17:08:26 -0700
Cleveland Browns RB Dion Lewis has started working with the second-team offense, and he has turned heads with his speed, moves and catching ability. Lewis has been seeing more work with RB Montario Hardesty (hamstring) sidelined with a hamstring injury.
Fantasy Tip: Lewis could win the No. 2 job if he keeps up his performance, and Hardesty cannot get onto the field. He still will be behind RB Trent Richardson, who will get a majority of the touches. However, if Richardson should suffer some sort of an injury, Lewis could be a nice in-season fantasy sleeper.
Sat, 20 Jul 2013 08:11:28 -0700

Wed, 17 Jul 2013 14:52:17 -0700

Tue, 28 May 2013 16:46:46 -0700
Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner's system is throwing a lot of passes to the running back position so far this offseason. RB Trent Richardson caught 51 balls last year, but RBs Dion Lewis and Montario Hardesty have also shown the ability to catch passes.
Fantasy Tip: Watch how the pass distribution and playing time on third downs plays out in the offseason, particularly the preseason. Richardson could see fewer passes come his way in 2013.
Fri, 24 May 2013 14:31:49 -0700

The Cleveland Browns feel confident WR Travis Benjamin and RB Dion Lewis can handle the return duties, which is why fan favorite WR Joshua Cribbs (Raiders) (knee) was allowed to leave via free agency without much effort to re-sign him. Plus, Cribbs is 30, and there are concerns about his knee.
Sun, 19 May 2013 18:31:05 -0700
The Cleveland Browns like the speed of RB Dion Lewis, especially as a third-down back. Lewis might also be in the mix to return kicks.
Fantasy Tip: As far as fantasy value, Lewis has very little considering he is behind Trent Richardson, Montario Hardesty and Chris Ogbonnaya on the depth chart. If injuries or a trade changes that picture, and Lewis scoots up the chart, he might be worth a look in fantasy football.
Sun, 19 May 2013 11:09:24 -0700

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid said RB LeSean McCoy (concussion) won't have his "normal workload" in Week 16 against the Washington Redskins. RBs Bryce Brown and Dion Lewis will rotate in at running back. "He's coming off an injury. I understand that, so I'll keep a close eye on him," Reid said. "He'll work in as a starter and then Bryce has some valuable experience that he's gained over the last few weeks, so we'll get him in there." McCoy said he felt a bit rusty while practicing Wednesday, Dec. 19.

Fri, 06 Jul 2012 21:26:33 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RBs Bryce Brown and Chris Polk will get their chance to show what they can do during training camp and the preseason. It's likely the team only keeps three running backs, and RBs LeSean McCoy and Dion Lewis are one-two on the depth chart.
Tue, 26 Jun 2012 19:33:38 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is the unquestioned starter up top, but it remains to be seen if RB Dion Lewis could step up and fill his role should McCoy miss any time due to injury. If that scenario occurred, the team might be hesitant to lean on Lewis, and they might use more of a committee approach. Lewis saw just 42 offensive snaps during his rookie season last year.
Mon, 04 Jun 2012 22:50:26 -0700
Philadelphia Eagles RB Dion Lewis has been working hard during the offseason to fill the role of primary backup to RB LeSean McCoy.

At the same time, you've got to show it in practice by not making mistakes and making plays," Lewis said Monday, June 4.
Mon, 02 Jan 2012 22:04:32 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB Dion Lewis carried nine times for 60 yards in the Week 17 game against the Washington Redskins, which was a breakthrough performance for the guy who is expected to be the primary backup to RB LeSean McCoy in 2012. He finished with 102 yards on 23 carries in his rookie season, averaging 4.4 yards per carry. In the past 25 years, only two Philadelphia rookie RBs Correll Buckhalter (4.5 - 2001) and Ryan Moats (5.1 - 2005) had a higher per-carry average, based on a minimum of 20 carries.
Sun, 01 Jan 2012 08:52:55 -0800
Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy (ankle) is not active in Week 17 against the Washington Redskins.
Fantasy Tip: That all but certainly makes Maurice Jones-Drew the NFL's rushing champion, as Adam Schefter also notes. Ronnie Brown and Dion Lewis will presumably split the work. Neither is a particularly attractive play given the uncertainty about how much each will touch the rock and the limitations of his abilities, but if you're desperate for a flex player, why not? Brown is the likelier candidate for goal-line touches.
