Recently, Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson has spent a lot of time denying that he is injury-prone. Now that he has begun his running program and is on track to start training camp on time, he might be able to quell some of those whispers.
According to The Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot, all signs point to good things for Richardson, who missed plenty of the Browns’ organized team activities and minicamp with a right shin injury.
The key, of course, is to ensure that Richardson is healthy for the start of the season. There isn’t a huge need to rush him onto the practice field, but getting him back for the start of camp would likely spell a huge sigh of relief on the part of the second-year player, who faces high expectations in a revamped offense.
One must consider, though, that Richardson will once again be learning a new pro offense under new coordinator Norv Turner. He surely feels the pressure to return, but the right amount of caution will hopefully pay off.
