Trent Richardson will have his carries limited during Sunday's game against the Eagles. We break own the fantasy implications.
Trent Richardson will be limited during Sunday's game between the Cleveland Browns and the Philadelphia Eagles, Albert Breer of NFL.com reports. Richardson will start the game, but he could be taken off the field on third downs in favor of Brandon Jackson and/or Montario Hardesty. Richardson is still recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery in the offseason. The Browns are looking to ease the rookie back up to game speed.
Analysis: We haven't seen much of Richardson yet, but he is expected to be a Top 10 fantasy back when healthy. You'll likely want to downgrade him a bit this week, however. He is going up against a stiff defensive front, and it sounds like his carries will be limited significantly.
