Browns running back Trent Richardson will start today, which means he better be ready for a full workload.

NFL Network’s Albert Breer reports that Richardson’s ready to go, after going through a full week of practice this week. The first-round pick had an arthroscopic procedure on his left knee on Aug. 9.

As we mentioned in the one-liners yesterday, General Manager Tom Heckert said: “There will be some [caution], but hey, if he’s ready to go, he’s ready to go.”

If that’s the case, Richardson will get plenty of chances today, and the Browns are going to need him if they want to keep up with the Eagles.
