Browns RB Trent Richardson Day-to-Day With Rib Injury


Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson is injured, but breathe at least a little sigh of relief that a) it isn’t too serious and b) it has nothing to do with his knees.

Richardson suffered a rib injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s 34-24 win over the Cincinnati Bengals, limiting him and, eventually, relegating him to the sidelines. Montario Hardesty performed well in his absence, though, accumulating 56 yards on 15 carries. Richardson, while attempting to fight through the injury, only had 37 yards on 14 carries.

While Richardson will be limited in practice this week, there doesn’t seem to be any need to worry about the long-term effects of this injury. According to him, he’ll be ready to go against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

"“I took a shot, but I’ll be back,” said Richardson. “I’ll be ready for next week.” (Source: ESPN)"
