Trent Richardson Could Steal Sophomore RB Spotlight If Healthy
Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson has followed an interesting trajectory since entering the NFL as the top running back selection in the draft. It’s incredible to think that this past April no running backs went in Round 1 but T-Rich left the board at No. 3 in 2013, with the added value of Cleveland trading up.
Richardson’s climb back from a knee scope for Week 1 would dominate headlines in comparison to someone like Washington Redskins sixth-rounder Alfred Morris and Tampa Bay Buccaneers late-first rounder Doug Martin. However, once the season started with would be the latter two that took prominence on the rookie RB radar.
However, if Richardson can shake the myriad injuries that nagged him last year along with the pulled leg muscle that caused him to miss weeks of OTAs, he’s flashed plenty enough talent in both the run and pass game to close the deficit between his 21st ranking by Pro Football Focus 2012 grades among running backs to Martin (eighth) and Morris (third).
“It’s terrible (sitting out), man,” Richardson told The Plain Dealer. “But I know in my mind — everybody knows — that it’s not going to be near like last year, being hurt and injured. Ain’t no biggie. Ain’t nothing to worry about.
“I could be out there, but they want to be cautious about it and just make sure I’m healthy when it’s time to be right for camp. … The (Browns) are going to make sure I’m doing the right thing,” Richardson said. “Other than that, I’m going to be working on the beach, running up sand dunes and doing whatever (one of his high school coaches and mentors Derrick Boyd) has written up for me.”
