This is more of an update than actual news regarding Browns running back Trent Richardson. A couple of weeks ago, we heard there was "every expectation" that Richardson's leg strain would be gone by training camp. According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, that expectation remains in line with reality.
"Richardson has begun his running program, as scheduled, at home in Pensacola, Fla., so he's still on track for camp," Cabot wrote Saturday. "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."
And they should err on the side of caution with their franchise running back. But if caution is the only reason why he is limited in camp, his fantasy draft stock shouldn't be affected. Richardson is a mid-to-late first-round pick.
