Richardson suffered an ankle injury in last Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. The team initially feared it was a serious injury that would require surgery, but fortunately for Richardson that was not the case. Still, he appears to be a long shot to play in a meaningless Week 17 game for the Browns. Montario Hardesty would likely get the start in place of Richardson.
Fantasy Impact: Trent Richardson has been a consistent, top ten running back during his rookie season. A preseason knee injury threw up red flags, but Richardson was durable and reliable this season for fantasy owners.
While his season appears to be over, Richardson should be a first round pick in all fantasy drafts next season.
