Trent Richardson’s knee not a major concern in Cleveland

Browns fans who were holding their breath about the status of rookie running back Trent Richardson’s knee can breathe easier.

Richardson had an MRI, which showed that his knee issue is “Not that big of a deal,” a source told Tony Grossi of ESPNCleveland.com.

It’s unclear whether Richardson will play in Friday’s preseason opener against the Lions, but the news is a good sign that Richardson will be good to go soon enough. He has recently been riding a stationary bike on the sideline rather than practicing, because of what the team termed a sore knee.

Richardson has already had knee surgery early this year, so any further knee issues are a concern. But the Browns’ medical staff checked Richardson out after the previous procedure and cleared him to be taken with the third overall pick, and the latest news is a good sign that Richardson’s knee won’t slow him down.

    Jim Brown does not need an explanation brother.

    On a related note, Browns fans everywhere are suffering from sore wrists due to Weeden mania, although this is also not considered to be a major concern.

    Good to hear. Hoping the Browns limit his carries this season, anyway. We have two capable backups and he should not get more than 20 touches a game.

    Yes, I’m sure Browns fans are all calm now . . .

    Wouldn’t be a concern if he had a good O-line to block for him and he wasnt in the AFCN. Having said that…it’s a huge problem.

    Gotta love the keyboard toughguys. Trent will show just how average both he and the o-line are NOT.

    Is this the same medical staff that didn’t see Colt McCoy had suffered a concussion. I mean really, Browns fans trust these guys?
