UPDATE: Browns RB Dion Lewis breaks leg in preseason game

Man, it is rough being a Browns backup running back these days. Montario Hardesty @MoHard20 is expected to miss a couple of regular-season games after undergoing knee surgery, and after tonight's events, you should expect Dion Lewis @DionLewis28 to miss much more time than that. That's because Lewis broke his fibula during Thursday's win over the Lions.

Update: Lewis needs surgery to repair his broken leg and is possibly out for the season.

Fantasy Analysis:

It's too bad, because he was enjoying a stellar preseason. Lewis had gained 82 total yards on 17 touches and seemed to be locked in as Cleveland No. 2 RB. Brandon Jackson @bjackson32 and Chris Ogbonnaya @ChrisOgbonnaya move up the depth chart and are the top two contenders to be Trent Richardson's handcuff.
