There is no such thing as minor knee surgery, so when the Browns said Trent Richardson would be back Week 1 I didn’t believe them.
We will see.
Richardson, who underwent knee surgery Aug. 9, rode a stationary bike before Saturday’s practice and remained on the field with his teammates as they began preparing for next week’s game against Philadelphia. Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Richardson has been running — and even taking part in some contact drills — and that if he’s able to practice this week, he’ll face the Eagles.
“If he’s ready, he’ll play,” Shurmur said.
