Trent Richardson is still on track to participate in Cleveland Browns training camp, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The running back is currently in a running program to rehab a leg injury that he suffered during offseason training activities.
Richardson may still be limited when training camp opens. The Browns have been erring on the side of caution with the running back. Richardson has dealt with a litany of minor injuries since entering the NFL a year ago. It was revealed late last season that he had been playing with broken ribs since Week 6. He is currently trying to overcome a pulled shin muscle.
If Richardson misses time, Montario Hardesty appears to be the first back in line for more playing time. Dion Lewis, Brandon Jackson and Chris Ogbonnaya have also been productive in the past, giving the Browns a rather deep stable of running backs should Richardson suffer a setback.
Richardson was productive as a rookie. In 15 games, he had 950 yards rushing on 267 carries and 367 yards receiving on 51 receptions. His 12 total touchdowns were tied for the sixth most in the NFL last season.
