Colts waived RB Dion Lewis.

DT Kelcy Quarles has been plucked off the Patriots' practice squad in a corresponding roster move. Lewis looked like he might get some playing time when the Colts signed him on September 9, but they're apparently satisfied with Boom Herron behind Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw. Under-sized at 5-foot-8, 195 pounds, Lewis owns a career 4.8 YPC through 36 carries.
Sep 16 - 3:13 PM

Colts signed RB Dion Lewis to a two-year contract.

RB Zurlon Tipton was waived in a corresponding move. It's hard to interpret Lewis' addition as anything other than a vote of no confidence in Trent Richardson, though for now he'll slide in at No. 4 on the depth chart. In addition to T-Rich, Lewis is also behind Ahmad Bradshaw and Boom Herron. A 2011 fifth-round pick of the Eagles, Lewis had a rough preseason for the Browns, but has averaged 4.8 YPC on 36 career totes. Lewis missed all of 2013 with a broken leg.
Sep 9 - 5:15 PM

Browns released RB Dion Lewis.

Lewis was thought to be the "favorite" for the Browns' No. 3 running back job just a week ago, but Isaiah Crowell's big night in the team's final preseason game may have changed those plans. Lewis has a decent shot to latch on somewhere else as a change of pace option.
Aug 30 - 8:49 AM

Coach Mike Pettine says Dion Lewis is the favorite for the Browns' No. 3 running back job.

He's pretty clearly ahead of UDFA Isaiah Crowell for the job behind Ben Tate and Terrance West. "Dion Lewis, I think, has separated himself from the other guys as far as the third running back spot," Pettine said. "But I would still say that that job is open." Lewis only has 10 carries for 21 yards this preseason. Crowell is barely on the radar, with three yards on two attempts.
Aug 24 - 7:43 PM

Dion Lewis rushed three times for eight yards in Saturday's preseason game, adding two catches for 10 yards.

It was his best night of the preseason, which should tell you all you need to know about Lewis' August. He has 10 rushes for 21 yards, and only four catches for 16 yards. He has one score and a lost fumble. Lewis is squarely on the roster bubble.
Aug 24 - 1:16 AM

Dion Lewis rushed three times for only six yards in the Browns' preseason opener, and also lost a fumble.

It was a disastrous night for a player on the roster bubble. With Ben Tate and rookie Terrance West locked into the Browns' top two spots, Lewis can't afford any more mistakes as he battles for a reserve change-of-pace role.
Aug 9 - 10:18 PM

Browns RB Dion Lewis missed some of OTAs and all of June minicamp with an undisclosed injury.

Lewis "insists" the injury is not related to last August's fractured fibula, which included ligament damage in his left leg and cost Lewis the entire season. Still, Lewis could've used the reps to make an impression on a new Browns coaching staff. The Akron Beacon Journal is skeptical of Lewis' fit in new OC Kyle Shanahan's zone-running offense. He's a brittle change-of-pace back.
Jul 4 - 10:50 AM

Dion Lewis (leg) participated in the first day of the Browns' offseason program.

Lewis fractured his left fibula during last year's second preseason game. He now heads into the final year of his rookie deal fighting with the likes of Edwin Baker and Chris Ogbonnaya for a roster spot behind starter Ben Tate.
Apr 30 - 8:23 AM

Browns placed RB Dion Lewis on injured reserve with a fractured left fibula, ending his season.

Lewis broke the leg in the Browns' second preseason game. There had been speculation that Cleveland could use its short-term I.R. spot on Lewis, but management didn't deem him valuable enough. Some combination of Chris Ogbonnaya, Brandon Jackson, and perhaps Montario Hardesty will open the season as Trent Richardson's backup. (T-Rich essentially has no handcuff.) Lewis is signed for $645,000 in the final year of his contract next season.

Browns RB Dion Lewis (broken leg) is expected to be placed on injured reserve.

Lewis underwent surgery on Monday. He was a candidate for injured reserve/designated to return, but the Browns must not be confident he'd be ready by Week 8. Cleveland has a very uncertain situation behind bell-cow Trent Richardson.
Tue, Aug 20, 2013 09:14:00 PM

Browns RB Dion Lewis will undergo surgery on his fractured left fibula.

Lewis will likely miss the entire season after suffering a broken leg in Thursday's preseason game. Depending on the extent of the damage, the Browns could decide to stash him on injured reserve/designated for return.
Fri, Aug 16, 2013 06:30:00 PM

The Browns have yet to determine if backup RB Dion Lewis (broken leg) will return this season.

Depending on his timeline, Lewis could be a candidate for injured reserve/designated to return. He'd be eligible to return in Week 8 if he landed on short-term IR. Considering the state of the Browns' running back corps behind Trent Richardson, they'll likely take an optimistic view of Lewis' return timetable.
Fri, Aug 16, 2013 12:10:00 PM

Dion Lewis suffered a fractured fibula in Thursday night's preseason game against the Lions.

Lewis was carted off the field in the second half. He had secured the No. 2 running back job with Montario Hardesty (knee scope) on the shelf, but will now likely miss at least first couple months of the season. It's a tough break for Lewis, who rushed for 55 yards on ten carries through two preseason games. Brandon Jackson is the new favorite to be Trent Richardson's top backup, although Chris Ogbonnaya and Montario Hardesty could also be involved if T-Rich got hurt during the year.
Thu, Aug 15, 2013 10:57:00 PM

Dion Lewis has taken more first-team reps than anyone in Browns camp.

Trent Richardson has been coddled thanks to his minor shin issues and former second-round pick Montario Hardesty has missed time with hamstring/finger woes. Regardless, Lewis has played well enough to win the No. 2 job outright. "The stuff that he can bring to the table, much like a (Darren) Sproles, it's very rare you can find a smaller guy like him that moves and plays hard like him every down," Richardson said. Hardesty's roster spot is in serious danger.
