Trent Richardson has been dealing with a nagging injury and, rather than playing him hurt, the Cleveland Browns may elect to shut down their running back through Week 10 of the NFL's regular season.
ESPN's Ed Werder reported Tuesday on SportsCenter that the Browns are discussing shutting down Trent Richardson through their Week 10 bye, though no decision has been made yet.
"The team (is) now discussing whether to hold him out through the bye week to allow him to heal," Werder said. "The fear being that if they don't, he'll be debilitated by his injury all year long. There's internal conflict about shutting him down, though, because Pat Shurmur, the coach, has to win some games here.
"They've only got one victory and Jimmy Haslam, the new owner, says he wants a stronger finish if he's going to bring back the coaching staff."
Richardson was obviously limited on Sunday as the rookie running back gained just eight yards on eight carries to go with two receptions for 11 yards before eventually being shutdown for the second half of the Browns' 17-13 loss to theIndianapolis Colts. Source: SBNation.com Attached Thumbnails
