ESPN’s Adam Schefter expects the Browns’ Trent Richardson to be back for week 1, despite having a 2nd knee surgery earlier this month. Both surgeries were about as minor as they come as the 3rd overall pick in the NFL Draft and it doesn’t look like they’ll cost him any games yet. However, it’s hardly a good sign that he’s had two surgeries and rookie running backs have trouble adjusting to the 16 game workload of the NFL historically anyway. 1st round pick running backs have averaged just 165 carries as rookies since 2007. Richardson will probably exceed that number, but his ADP in the 3rd round right now is a little rich. Meanwhile, backup Montario Hardesty, who is finally healthy, makes for an interesting handcuff late, especially in deeper leagues.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Austin Howard has impressed the New York Jets in camp and could get more time at right tackle and end up starting ahead of Wayne Hunter who’s been a serious liability.
Don’t be surprised if Austin Howard gets more and more time at right tackle for the Jets and winds up as the starter. Howard has impressed.
