Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson was able to return from an injury to his leg in time to suit up for the start of training camp. However, the injury-prone rusher was once again on the sidelines Friday, as he was dealing with another injury to the same leg, this time a shin ailment, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk. Coach Rob Chudzinski released the following statement regarding Richardson’s most recent injury: “It looks like yesterday he got kicked so we decided to hold him out,” Chudzinski said of Richardson, in quotes distributed by the team.  ”He should be OK.  We feel good about it.  We are not worried about it.  It is part of the plan we have for him.  We will continue to keep him healthy and rested and get him ready for the season.” While the Browns are downplaying Richardson’s injury, it’s always alarming when someone with an injury history as extensive as his is hurt. Cleveland is expected to take things slow in Richardson’s recovery from his shin injury, which makes sense. However, as Smith points out, you can be as careful as you want during training camp and even through the preseason, but once the regular season rolls around Richardson is going to have to become accustomed to being hit on a regular basis by NFL players.
