Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson (ribs) was limited in Thursday's practice session, reports Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beaco Journal. Richardson left Sunday's game against the Bengals with damaged rib cartilage, but he's not expected to miss Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Richardson insists that he is pain-free and will be wearing a flak jacket this week. He has 340 rushing yards and five total TDs on the season.
Fantasy Impact: T-Rich should be available to play, but he continues to be nicked up to the point that the Browns will limit his workload again. So that means more carries for Montario Hardesty and Chris Ogbonnaya, most likely. Hardesty has the better handcuff value.
Consider Richardson an RB2 this week against the Colts' tissue-paper defense, with Hardesty as the main backup.
