Update: Contrary to previous reports, Trent Richardson practiced fully on Friday, according to Browns head coach Pat Shurmur.
"[Richardson] practiced throughout today," Shurmur said. "He practiced all the way through practice. Yeah, I think he'll be there."
Browns running back Trent Richardson was limited in practice throughout the week, Friday included, and went through some of the sessions while wearing a flak jacket. He'll probably be wearing the jacket against the Colts this weekend, but he is expected to play. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, "the Browns appear to be going easy on him to get him to Sunday."
The Browns might take it a little easy on Richardson come game day. I think Montario Hardesty will get 5-10 touches as the Browns shouldn't want to overwork their rookie stud RB with injured ribs. Plus, you know Chris Ogbonnaya will probably see some action on third downs. But there are few matchups in this league for a running back that are as attractive as the Colts' defense. Richardson should still get plenty of carries and is a solid RB1 this week.
