Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson suffered a rib cartilage injury during their win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Richardson is expected to be limited in practice throughout the week and told The Cleveland Plain Dealer that he believes he can play despite the pain Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts. Backup Montario Hardesty is next in line should Richardson be unable to go. Hardesty rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown last week and could face Indy's underwhelming run defense.
Indianapolis most recently allowed the ever-unspectacular New York Jets running back Shonn Greene to run all over them. In total, the Colts allowed the Jets to rush for 252 yards in a 35-9 loss. Whether it's Richardson or Hardesty starting, either back is a great play. More information will become available over the next few days as the Browns return to practice Wednesday.
