More information is coming in regarding the health of Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson. This time it's straight from the source. Richardson told reporters today that he has not been told that he will be out until August. He also stated that the report his leg injury was a result of someone stepping on his leg, was false. ESPNCleveland's Will Burge sent out recent updates via Twitter.
Richardson said he was told he would be out til late July or early August when camp would start then said he was not told hed be out til Aug— Will Burge (@WillBurge) June 5, 2013
Richardson refuted a report that he was stepped on in practice and thats what caused the lower leg injury #Browns— Will Burge (@WillBurge) June 5, 2013
Clearly Richardson doesn't believe his leg injury is as serious previously thought. Yesterday it was reported that he'd be out until August. Now it appears that may not be the case.
At any rate, this is something to keep an eye on. If the Browns took the field Sunday, Richardson says he'd suit up. That's good enough for me.
Richardson says if there was a game Sun he would be playing and that he fully expects to be back for training camp in late July or early Aug— Will Burge (@WillBurge) June 5, 2013
Do Richardson's comments relieve some of your anxiety?
