Hill has missed the first two weeks of the season due to an ankle injury, but appears on track to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Lions barring any setbacks. The rookie does not figure to hold any fantasy relevance early on given the running backs ahead of him, but he should see plenty of work in special teams.
Brown likely is more on the doubtful side of his questionable designation given his inability to even practice in a limited role this week. Justin Davis figures to be in line to get some playing time whenever workhorse back Todd Gurley needs a breather should Brown ultimately be ruled out.
Washington has merely been splitting backup work with Jalen Richard, who closed out Sunday's 45-20 win over the Jets with a 52-yard touchdown run. Even with the Raiders making a clear effort to limit Marshawn Lynch's workload, Washington doesn't figure to get more than 5-to-10 touches in any given week. An absence would put Richard on the radar in deep leagues for a Week 3 matchup with the Redskins.
The session marks Cunningham's first since suffering a left high-ankle sprain in the regular-season opener. Because such injuries are typically accompanied by a multi-week absence, he may have been testing the waters Wednesday. If he proves healthy enough to suit up Sunday against the Steelers, he may be hard-pressed to wrest pass-catching duties from rookie Tarik Cohen, though first- and second-down work could be available due to the shoulder injury plaguing starting RB Jordan Howard at the moment.
Howard has been tending to a right shoulder injury since the first half of the Bears' Week 1 loss to the Falcons. After aggravating the injury Sunday at Tampa Bay, he was wearing a sling but didn't touch on the ailment until a media session Monday. "My shoulder, I'm good, I'm good," he told Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times. If Howard's limited session Wednesday is any indication, he's still hampered by the injury and could again play second fiddle to Tarik Cohen for the second weekend in a row.
Murray did not practice Wednesday, setting the stage for his status to monitored closely in the coming days. ESPN's Cameron Wolfe relayed after Wednesday's session that coach Mike Mularkey indicated that he was hopeful that Murray would be available this weekend. If the veteran back doesn't to suit up or is limited Sunday, Derrick Henry would see added work at running back for the Titans.
Forced to play with the burden of a multi-score deficit for much of the first two weeks, the Browns have attempted 72 passes and only 46 rushes. Crowell accounts for 27 of the 46, with DeShone Kizer handling another 10. Given that fellow running backs Duke Jackson and Matt Dayes have just seven combined carries, the real issue is Cleveland's overall struggles more so than Crowell's role. The good news for Crowell is that his team should be more competitive in the upcoming weeks, facing the Colts on Sunday and then the Bengals in Week 4 and the Jets in Week 5. Of course, he'll need to do better than his current average of 2.6 yards per carry.
The injury might initially seem to explain why Williams only logged three offensive snaps in Sunday's 19-17 win over the Chargers, but he actually played 13 snaps on special teams. With Jay Ajayi (knee) operating as an every-down workhorse, there simply isn't much room for Williams or Kenyan Drake to contribute. Ajayi also missed Wednesday's practice, but there's been no suggestion his injury is serious.
The injury didn't necessarily contribute to Mack's reduced workload in Sunday's loss to Arizona, as most of his Week 1 touches came in the second half of a blowout. Even if he's relatively healthy, Sunday's matchup against the Browns figures to be a competitive game, which should work more in favor Frank Gore and Robert Turbin. However, the Colts may want to give Mack an extended look at some point, considering they're already shaping up as a long shot to compete for a playoff spot.
Washington appeared to be shaken up on the last of his three carries in Monday's 24-10 win over the Giants. He gets a bit more work than the typical No. 3 back and could even get some carries at the goal line, but there isn't much potential for double-digit touches unless Ameer Abdullah suffers a major injury. Zach Zenner will fill in as the No. 3 back if Washington isn't ready for Sunday's game against Atlanta.
