The Cleveland Browns will host the New Orleans Saints without starting RB Ben Tate during Week 2 of the NFL. Tate suffered a knee injury in the Week 1 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, which led to Terrance West rushing for 100 yards and Isaiah Crowell scoring 2 touchdowns.
#Browns starting RB Ben Tate will likely miss a few weeks with a knee sprain, source says. At this point, no surgery required.

Given that West was probably drafted, and Crowell might have been scooped up on waivers after scoring twice, here are some other options to explore for Week 2:
- You will be hard pressed to find a RB who will get 15 carries in Week 2, but Greene did so in Week 1 and picked up 71 yards against the Chiefs. This week the Titans get the Cowboys!
- A solid PPR option, Bradshaw is just waiting for the Colts to pull the plug on Trent Richardson. He caught 5 passes and totaled 85 yards in Week 1 against the Broncos, and in Week 2 gets the Eagles.
