ESPN's Browns reporter Pat McManamon expects Ricardo Louis to start opposite Kenny Britt with Corey Coleman (hand) sidelined.

Coleman is likely headed to injured reserve, which means the Browns will have to make due for at least eight weeks. Rashard Higgins was listed as the starter on Cleveland's unofficial depth chart on Tuesday and is the better fantasy bet, but perhaps Louis, who earned some praise in the offseason, can make some noise as well, especially if Britt continues to mail it in.

Patriots worked out free agent WR Kenny Lawler.

They also had in WRs River Cracraft and Nelson Spruce for the workout. It is not surprising the Patriots are turning over every leaf with the current state of their receiver corps, but it is unlikely any of these guys make a fantasy impact.

Ravens signed Jeremy Langford to their practice squad.

Langford was promoted off the practice squad last week only to be cut two days later for Alex Collins. He could get called up again with Terrance West dealing with an injury. Baltimore made a host of moves Tuesday, sending Marshal Yanda and Bam Bradley to injured reserve, signing Matt Skura and Dieugot Joseph to replace them, and adding Arie Kouandjio and Nicholas Grigsby to the practice squad along with Langford.

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said there is "not a timetable" for CB Jason Verrett (knee) to return.

An MRI showed no new damage to Verrett's surgically-repaired left knee last week, but it sounds like he is still going to miss more time. "We’re still evaluating him and we just want him to get right before he’s back on the football field," Lynn said. The Chargers still have standout Casey Hayward, but Verrett's absence is a big one.

Rashard Higgins is listed as a starter on the Browns' unofficial depth chart.

Team released depth charts do not mean much, but Higgins did play 54-of-71 snaps against the Ravens, 12 more than Kenny Britt. He also turned 11 targets into seven catches for 95 yards. Just promoted off the practice squad on Saturday, there is a risk Higgins recedes into the background even with Corey Coleman (hand) likely headed to injured reserve, but he is worth an add in all leagues.

Jerry Jones said Dak Prescott (ankle) will be ready for Week 3.

"He is going to be able to play Monday," Jones said. There never seemed to be much concern about Prescott's status, but it is still good to hear. Prescott will be a low-end QB1 against the Cardinals on Monday night.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said the team has to be "careful" with Chris Thompson.

"He's not the biggest guy in the world. We don't want him to get 20-25 carries a game and get a lot of pounding on that body," Gruden said. "So we'll try to expand his role a little bit, but we don't want to go too crazy with him." Fantasy owners are understandably excited after Thompson scored three highlight-worthy touchdowns in the first two games, but he has just 13 touches total so far this year. Unless his role increases dramatically, which it does not sound like it will, he is likely to be overvalued on the waiver wire.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn suggested free agent DE Dwight Freeney could be an option for the team.

Freeney managed three sacks on limited snaps last season in Atlanta, and they could use some help with Vic Beasley set to miss a month with a torn hamstring. Quinn said Freeney is on their radar, and they still talk to him "on a regular basis." If Freeney decides to play -- Quinn said he "certainly wants to" -- it sounds like the Falcons will be interested.
