Trent Richardson reported to camp with rookies and is practicing fully

Browns running back Trent Richardson was adamant that the knee and rib injuries that slowed him down last season were not going to get in the way of a full workload once training camp got underway.

Things don’t officially get going in Berea, Ohio for the full squad for a couple of days, but Richardson has already made good on his vow. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Richardson reported to camp with the team’s rookies and injured players last week and that he has been practicing fully since then.

That’s a great development for the Browns, who never got a full speed Richardson in his rookie season because of the nagging injuries he couldn’t shake over the course of the season. He grinded his way through 15 games, but Cleveland wasn’t using a first-round pick on a guy to grind his way through the year. They were looking for something a bit more impactful and a return to health is a necessary part of getting it.

Cabot also reports that head coach Rob Chudzinski said that wide receiver David Nelson will open camp on the PUP list. Nelson is coming off of a torn ACL with the Bills last season and can be removed the list to start practicing with the team at any time. Safety Jamoris Slaughter, a sixth-round pick in April, is able to practice after injuring his Achilles at Notre Dame.

    Beast.

    Hope he can stay healthy a full year. It will be very interesting to see him at full speed cracking some skulls. His health and Gordon’s ability to stay out of trouble will play a huge factor in the Browns success this year. I hope they can both keep on the positive side and dem Brownies can surprise some people.

    As a Browns fan this is great news. We sure need some in Cleveland. A healthy and productive Richardson takes some of the load off of Weeden. Sure hope we have him healthy for the whole season.

    To barkymingo,

    You bet they’re going to surprise some folks this year, most notably the aging, creaky Pittsburgh defense. Long overdue! Get ‘em!

    that “aging, creaky Pittsburgh defense” was number one in the league again.

    To Maddog111, I don’t think he said we are going to surprise the Steelers defense from last year but whatever. Also I don’t even think the Browns could have the number one defense and miss the playoffs, thats just sad, go troll the Ravens articles

    As long as Dick LeBeau is around in Pittsburgh, they’re defense is going to stack up with some of the best in the league.

    That said, Horton’s defense should be able to take advantage of a weak Pittsburgh offensive line and aging, creaky QB. And if Chud can bring the offense back to 2007 form when Cleveland was in the top-10 of most offensive categories, the Browns can be right in the thick of things come December.

    Being a Die Hard Browns fan since the 70’s
    I have to say this.
    I haven’t been this confident in what the team can do in a long time. The Browns finally have the coaching to get to the next level.
    The talent is there, but a very young team that is going to have a few growing pains this season but, make no mistake, the dawgs are back and I look for them to make a strong statement next season if not this season. Go Browns
