Trent Richardson will practice Wednesday for the Cleveland Browns despite suffering a ribs injury during Sunday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals, Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland reports. Richardson was knocked out of the game in the first half after taking a sharp blow to the side.
Richardson has said that he expects to play this weekend. He is enjoying a solid rookie season so far. Through six games he has 95 carries for 340 yards rushing and four touchdowns, and 22 receptions for 186 yards and one touchdown.
Fantasy Impact: Expect Richardson to be on the field when the Browns take on an Indianapolis Colts defense giving up 5.0 yards per carry on the season. The only question becomes whether or not Montario Hardesty will eat into his carries. Hardesty had 15 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown last week in place of Richardson.
Richardson has shown a remarkable ability to rebound from injury, and should continue to find his way onto the field any way he can going forward. He is a solid RB2 in standard fantasy leagues at this point.
