RB Richardson Misses Practice, May Miss Lions Game

Trent Richardson may miss his first game for the Browns.

The highly regarded rookie was not in pads, his left leg was wrapped, and he did not participate in practice at all on Tuesday.

“There’s a chance he won’t play on Friday,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “He’s got a sore knee and is being evaluated.”

It could be the result of going full-bore the past two weeks on a knee that was surgically repaired this spring. That’s one of the reasons Richardson did not fully participate in the NFL combine in April.

“It was a little scope,” Richardson said at the time of what was termed minor surgery. “I don’t even call it a setback.”

It didn’t keep Cleveland from trading up to No. 3 in the draft to select the tailback who helped lead Alabama to the national championship. And it didn’t prevent the Browns from signing Richardson to a four-year, $20.5 million contract.

“I’m always concerned about injuries,” Shurmur said. “He’s been practicing well. We’ll just have to see where he is.”
