Trent Richardson is listed as probable on Friday's injury report released by the Cleveland Browns. We break down the fantasy implications.

Trent Richardson is listed as probable for Week 5 on the Cleveland Browns' Friday injury report, according to Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger. Richardson underwent arthroscopic knee surgery at the beginning of training camp, but has been able to play and carry a full load in every game so far this season. He is not expected to be limited when the Browns take on the New York Giants on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Richardson missed practice Friday, but that was so he could attend the birth of his third child. There should be no question about his status this week. Richardson is a solid RB2 option in standard fantasy leagues, garnering a ton of touches within an albeit weak Browns offense. He has 344 total yards and four touchdowns through four games.
