Richardson was the Steelers third string running back for the first three weeks of the season, but now is no longer needed in that role. Le'Veon Bell is back from his early season suspension thus regaining his spot at the top of the depth chart. De'Angelo Williams will be the heavily used backup and Fitzgerald Touissant will slide down to the third string role. Richardson will now have to try and catch on with another squad after seeing just five total snaps in the Steel City.
The knee injury stems from Week 1 and has lingered now for three weeks as we head into the quarter mark of the season. The linebacker missed Wednesday's practice as well and now is squarely in the questionable category as the Steelers will try to get back on track against the Chiefs on Sunday Night football. L.J. Fort should get more snaps if Shazier can't go in full for Week 4.
There are differing reports involving the star wideout's broken knee and this one has the shortest time frame possible. When reports first surfaced the news was that he could miss three weeks, then others put it at 5-6 weeks he could be out. Either way however it seems very unlikely that he will be playing in Week 4 even if he is listed as day-to-day. Right now having him out of your lineup(s) would be the smart decision until he is listed as active and in uniform of Sunday's tilt.
Rogers has been dealing with turf toe and has been considered questionable for Week 4. There's a good chance he misses this week against Kansas City which should boost the value to those behind him on the depth chart such as Sammie Coates.
Crowell should be 100% as the Browns take on the Redskins in Week 4, making him a solid RB2. He's currently second in the league in rushing yards, averaging 6.1 YPC, and has scored twice. This figures to be a high-scoring game this weekend.
Travis has been out since Monday after injuring his shoulder in the brawl with the Yankees. He's starting at second base tonight and batting ninth against Ubaldo Jimenez.
Bryant is getting the night off as Tommy La Stella will bat leadoff and start at third base tonight. Bryant should be back in the lineup tomorrow.
Jackson has been listed as limited in order to help manage his reps, but he should be ready to roll this weekend as the Redskins face off against a porous Browns defense. DJax makes for an interesting tournament play given his boom or bust nature.
The Cubs are resting a few starters, including Rizzo, as he gives way to Javy Baez at first base, batting fifth against rookie Rob Zastryzny.
