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.
