Trent Richardson looks ready to start Sunday

Browns running back Trent Richardson is looking ready to play in Cleveland’s opener against the Eagles on Sunday.

Richardson practiced on Monday for the first time since August 6, and he did so without pain in the knee that has had him sidelined since arthroscopic surgery on August 9. Richardson worked with the first-string offense, and afterward Browns coach Pat Shurmur sounded optimistic that Richardson would be the team’s starting running back on Sunday.

Trent looked healthy running around today,” Shurmur said. “All along, I’ve been hopeful he’ll be there. If he’s ready to go, he’ll be our starter.”

Richardson didn’t talk to reporters after practice but teammates said he looked every bit as good as he did before surgery. From all indications, Richardson will play against the Eagles.

    That’s smart. Let’s bring the guy back after surgery (love how they sound so optimistic) and put him in with the Eagles defense. Why not?! It’s not like the eagles have monsters on rotation at all times or anything… Dumb move. He won’t say he’s not ready to go (ego) and Browns fans will find out the hard way ;)

    You realize the eagles were one of the worst teams against the run last year and outside of Ryan at LB not much is different.

    Not a good sign for a rookie RB to have this many knee problems already

    Sorry, but USAIN Bolt runs in a straight line and doesn’t have to make cuts, so that comment is irrelevant.
