News: Lewis has been cut by the Browns, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Impact: With Lewis, who carried 12 times for 30 yards in the preseason, no longer in the mix, it appears as though Isaiah Crowell -- who looked sharp in the team's preseason finale -- is now a candidate to claim a reserve slot in the Browns' backfield behind Ben Tate and Terrance West.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Mike Pettine noted that Lewis has opened up an edge in the battle for the Browns' No. 3 running back job, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Impact: Lewis received just three carries in the Browns' third preseason contest, but his eight yards on the ground were actually good enough for second on the team. Only Terrance West had more carries (seven) than Lewis, but West turned those carries into just 17 yards. The Browns also like Lewis' ability to catch the ball out of the backfield, and he showed prowess in this part of his game Saturday by catching two passes for 10 yards. The battle is still far from over, but at this point, Lewis seems to be edging out Isaiah Crowell and Chris Ogbonnaya for one of the final running back jobs with the team. This won't translate to much fantasy value out of the gates, but if something were to happen injury-wise to either Ben Tate or Terrance West, Lewis could be in line for more meaningful regular season snaps.(RotoWire, )
