Trent Richardson limited in Thursday practice, but fantasy value should be fine

Ron Schwane-US PRESSWIRE

Trent Richardson was limited on Thrursday practice as the Browns are going easy on their rookie back. We break down the fantasy implications.

Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson (ribs) was limited in practice for the second day in a row Thursday. reports Nate Ullrich of the Akron Beacon Journal. Richardson has been beat up all season, and the Browns are simply going easy on their prized rookie back. There is no worry about him missing Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Richardson carried the ball 24 times against the Chargers, with 122 yards and a TD.

Fantasy Impact: For once, it sounds like T-Rich will be healthy this week. He's still not 100% after taking a shot to the ribs in Week 6, but he's getting there.

The Ravens have one of the worst run defenses in the league, so T-Rich has a chance to tee off again. Start him as a RB1 in fantasy leagues.
