Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson is trying to shed the injury prone label, so the news that he has begun his running program has to be positive news for the team as they prepare for this month’s training camp.
Richardson has begun his running program, as scheduled, at home in Pensacola, Fla., so he’s still on track for camp. But the Browns will err on the side of caution and do whatever it takes to get him to the season healthy. If he’s somewhat limited early on in camp, it wouldn’t be the worst decision.
Considering Richardson’s injury history, it may not be a bad move for the team to sit Richardson out for the early going of training camp.
Of course, the team would prefer to have Richardson participating as soon as possible so that he can get in game shape, so if he feels that he is 100 percent then the Browns will have to take him for his word and get him out on the field.
