The Friday before NFL Week 7 action really gets going has not been boring by any stretch of the imagination. The day kicked off with the Arizona Cardinals announcing the much-anticipated firing of offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. This has led to a “Free David Johnson” movement on social media.

Following this, the Cleveland Browns decided to trade running back Carlos Hyde to the Jacksonville Jaguars. And, the Oakland Raiders announced that Marshawn Lynch will miss several weeks due to a groin injury.

All of these running back-related news tidbits have since sparked quite the hubbub on Twitter.
