Trent Richardson rushed 19 times for 39 yards and a five-yard reception in the Browns' Week 1 loss to the Eagles.

The Browns did not limit Richardson's workload at all. He played virtually every first- and second-down snap in his NFL debut, but had absolutely nowhere to run. That's what happens when your quarterback turns in an all-time inept performance, allowing the Eagles to stack the box. Brandon Weeden and Richardson should both find the sledding easier against the Bengals next week.

Coach Hue Jackson named DeShone Kizer the Browns' starting quarterback for Week 7 against the Titans.

There's some speculation the Browns benched Kizer in Week 6 at Houston to avoid a Kizer-Deshaun Watson matchup after the Browns passed on Watson, who is playing at an MVP level, in order to come back and take Kizer 40 picks later. Kevin Hogan was dreadful in his start, and Jackson is going back to the rookie Kizer. Kizer has far more upside as a thrower and runner, but he has to cut down on the turnovers and sacks taken for this Cleveland offense to get off the mat.

Marqise Lee (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

Lee had been missing practice time with a ribs issue in recent weeks, so the knee problem is a new concern. Lee saw a season-high 10 targets in Week 6 against the Rams, reeling in five for 83 yards. If he's out there Sunday on the road against a bad Colts pass defense, Lee will be on the WR4 radar.

Leonard Fournette (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

This doesn't come as a surprise. Fournette jammed his ankle late in the Week 6 loss to the Rams but was cleared to return, though he didn't. For now, expect Fournette to suit up Sunday in the dome against the Colts.

Jordan Matthews (thumb) has been cleared to practice Wednesday.

He is officially limited as he works his way back from thumb surgery earlier this month. Through four games this season, Matthews has 10 catches for 162 yards and a score. He could play a bigger role with Charles Clay (knee) out. It remains to be seen if Matthews will suit up for Week 7 vs. Tampa Bay.

Ezekiel Elliott has been granted another temporary restraining order by the Southern District of New York, and will be allowed to play Week 7.

Zeke's restraining order, apparently issued by a "fill-in" judge, is for 14 days. He will have to make his case to Judge Katherine Fallia when she returns from vacation "before or by Oct. 30." She will decide on a "preliminary injunction." Unbelievable. So it appears Elliott will also be good for Week 8. His long-term prospects remain clear as mud, but fantasy owners have at least one more game to get their fantasy backfield in order. Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris won't be playable this week.

49ers placed DE Arik Armstead (broken hand) on injured reserve.

The 49ers tipped their hand earlier Tuesday, signing DL Tony McDaniel and Leger Douzable. Armstead will presumably be a candidate for return, but he'll have to sit out eight games first, meaning he can't return until Week 16. At that point, the 49ers might not bother. The No. 17 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Armstead was off to a solid start this season, plugging the run and providing some pass rush. Things are in danger of getting really ugly for the rebuilding 49ers.

Colts RB Robert Turbin (arm) will miss the remainder of the season.

Turbin's left arm got bent in sickening fashion against the Titans on Monday. He had handled a season-high seven touches before going down. Turbin was struggling behind Frank Gore, averaging 2.30 yards on his 23 carries. Two months shy of his 28th birthday, Turbin is signed for $1 million next season. His loss will create more opportunities for promising rookie Marlon Mack.

Redskins placed K Dustin Hopkins (hip) on injured reserve.

Hopkins is apparently a candidate for return. He has to miss a minimum of eight games. In the meantime, he will be replaced by 2016 UDFA Nick Rose. The Redskins' kicker since 2015, Hopkins has been an 84 percent field goal kicker, and converted 5-of-13 kicks of 50 yards or longer. 2017 is the final year of his contract.

Speaking Tuesday, Titans coach Mike Mularkey said the team's Week 6 timeshare at running back was a "good model."

Derrick Henry and DeMarco Murray both played 39 snaps one week after Murray out-snapped Henry 49-11. Henry ran circles around Murray against the Colts, out-touching him 20-16 and out-gaining him 145-87. Mularkey also said Henry has become the team's "go-to" running back in the fourth quarter. Mularkey's comments make it clear there shouldn't be another game where Murray plays 38 more snaps than Henry, but it's going to remain a messy situation, with the veteran likely to continue taking the lead. Henry has been the better player this season. Maybe the Titans' workload delineation will eventually begin to reflect that.

DeMarco Murray is dealing with hamstring tightness, but will be active for Week 7.

One week after dominating snaps, Murray played as many (39) as Derrick Henry against the Colts. Henry both out-touched and out-gained his veteran backfield mate as Murray checked in and out of the game. Murray has been battling hamstring issues since training camp, and is merely the RB18 by total points through the season's first six weeks. He'll be a risk/reward RB2 for Week 7 against the Browns.

Marcus Mariota (hamstring) escaped Monday night's win over the Colts without setbacks.

Mariota's mobility was noticeably limited, but he played better and better as the game wore on. It was an extremely impressive effort by a player who isn't known for staying confined to the pocket. Mariota offers monster upside for Week 7 against the Browns.
