Jason Pinkston No. 62 blocks for Montario Hardesty at training camp.
Jason Pinkston got emotional running through the tunnel as smoke and flames shot up all around him. It was the Browns’ first preseason game of the year, but for Pinkston it was much more than that: It was the first time that he was playing football in a real game setting again. The first time since laying in a hospital bed with a life-threatening blood clot in his left lung.

Trent Richardson is a rarity in the world of fantasy football as the primary running back for the Cleveland Browns. In his rookie season he scored 12 total touchdowns and received 16 or more touches in 12 of his 15 games played last season, those are tempting numbers in the realm of fantasy football. But can he be counted on for a full slate of games in 2013?
