X-rays were negative on the foot of Cleveland running back Jamal Lewis and the knee of receiver Joe Jurevicius, who both left the Browns' loss against New England. Lewis also was scheduled to have an MRI on the foot, which he sprained on his first play Sunday. Jurevicius left in the second quarter after experiencing swelling in the knee.

Commentary: If Lewis is out, third-year veteran Jason Wright would likely start. Wright carried 15 times for 59 yards against New England and has 102 yards on 19 attempts this season. If Jurevicius is out, Tim Carter probably would start. He caught three passes for 50 yards and a touchdown against the Patriots.

Fantasy Football Impact: Lewis remains a fantasy disappointment. Other than a monster 216-yard game against Cincinnati in Week 2, he has not been over 100 yards and has scored just twice. Jurevicius has scored three touchdowns in two games but otherwise has not been a fantasy factor either. The only guys with consistent fantasy value for the Browns are receiver Braylon Edwards and tight end Kellen Winslow.
