From all indications, Richardson is still on pace to achieve his optimistic goal of being ready to go when the Browns report.
Richardson, seemed very confident last month he would return in time for camp, after Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski thought he might miss the start of camp.
Reports of Richardson’s shin injury broke out a little over a month ago. With the injuries the rookie running back faced last season, some have been willing to tag the term “injury prone” to him already.
During his rookie season, Richardson dealt with broken ribs, knee surgery, injured ankle, and now a strained muscle in his shin. Despite an injury plagued rookie campaign, Richardson still managed to a have a fantastic season in 2012. The rookie running back out of Alabama rushed for 950 yards, 11 touchdowns and caught 51 passes for 367 yards. Richardson was without a doubt the biggest surprise during another rough season for Browns fans, as they watched their team finish with a 5-11 record.
The Browns have not made the playoffs since 2002. As for Richardson, the young running back is continuing to gain strength in his leg as training camp quickly approaches. Richardson began his running program back in his Florida home. Cleveland is scheduled to open training camp July 24.
