Trent Richardson suffers painful rib injury, MRI on Monday

The Browns finally earned their first win on Sunday against the Bengals, but running back Trent Richardson didn’t have much to do with it.

Richardson had 14 carries for 37 yards before leaving with a rib injury that was too painful for him to continue. A source told PFT’s Mike Florio that Richardson will have an MRI on Monday.

The Browns had announced Richardson as leaving with a “flank” injury, which is not to suggest that the team views Richardson as a piece of meat.

With Richardson out, backup running back Montario Hardesty had 14 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown for the Browns.

    Too bad about Richardson, but at least they beat the Bungholes.

    They should have described it as a “flanker’ injury…to be perfectly flank.

    Just get another flanker.

    Makes you wonder if a high 1st Round pick should be wasted on a rb in most occasions

    Too soon to tell, but seems fragile. Guy might be a cream puff.
