The Cleveland Browns rookies have already reported to training camp, but there was also a second-year player that made the trip to Berea, Ohio. Often-injured running back Trent Richardston reported with the rookies to camp and he has been practicing fully since then, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Knee and rib injuries slowed Richardson down last season and they have also limited him during the minicamps and OTAs, but Richardson’s main goal had always been focusing on being 100 percent for the start of training camp and now that it is here he is out on the field doing work.
The Browns are depending on Richardson to be the workhorse back this coming season, so for him to be going full force at the beginning of camp is a positive sign.
Cleveland plans to run a vertical passing offense in 2013, but it will be crucial to have a rushing game to compliment the passing attack. If Richardson is able to go all out without being affected by injuries in his sophomore season, the team’s offense could go to new heights.
