Trent Richardson Injury: Browns RB Working Away, Expected Back 'Soon'

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson is expected to be back at practice "soon," according to head coach Pat Shurmur. Richardson has been out since getting his knee scoped in early August, but Shurmur sounded optimistic about Richardson's status in a press conference Monday morning:

"He's getting better every day so his progress has been outstanding. I think he's ten days out now, so he's about where we thought he'd be at this point, probably a little bit ahead of that. He'll be out here soon."

The Browns traded up in the 2012 draft to pick Richardson third overall. He is expected to be a major part of a revamped Cleveland offense that includes fellow 2012 first round pick Brandon Weeden, but it remains to be seen if Richardson's health will hold him back this season.
