What is the latest on the health of Cleveland Browns running Trent Richardson? According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, the second-year running back is on track to return for the start of training camp:
Richardson has begun his running program, as scheduled, at home in Pensacola, Fla., so he’s still on track for camp. 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. ź
When news first broke a month and a half ago about Richardson's leg injury, rumors surfaced that he would be out until some time in August, which means he would have missed a good portion of training camp. Richardson quickly refuted those reports, vowing to be back by the start of training camp. At this point, I don't think it's a question of if Richardson will be ready by the start of training camp, but rather he will remain healthy for the duration of camp and heading into the regular season.
