Trent Richardson was absent from Friday's practice, but it's not related to any injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson was not at practice Friday, reports Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. According to coach Pat Shurmur, Richardson's absence is not injury-related; he's taking the day off with his girlfriend having a baby and is not expected to miss Sunday's game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Impact: This is Richardson's third child. He's not on the injury reports this week for the first time all season and is starting to live up to the preseason hype, with 104 yards from scrimmage and a TD last week. Richardson has three scores on the season, and despite a meager 3.5 YPC is good enough as a receiver to plug in as a RB2 most weeks.
