Browns coach Pat Shurmur spoke to the media after practice about rookie RB Trent Richardson- (On how he goes about getting the ball to Trent Richardson in space)- “In our game plans we have ways for him to run the ball inside, off tackle, outside the defense and then you see we run them on wide routes out of the backfield as part of a progression. If they take away the ball down the field then you throw the ball to him in the flat and then there are other types of routes he runs. What we ask him to do is somewhat multiple, whether we’re handing it to him or he’s part of a pass progression where he may get a catch.” (On how far Richardson’s mentality can take him in this league)- “He’s a tough guy, he’s a competitive guy and I think he knows his body better than anybody. He’s had a chance to play a bunch of games now where he’s less than 100%, but I think most guys in the league now are playing at less than 100%. I think he’s looking forward to getting out there and playing and I think so much of this game is above the neck. I’m looking forward to seeing him compete.” (On if he would like to see more production in terms of yardage on Richardson’s receptions)- “There’s time when you throw it to the running back in a situation where they back out on you. Yeah, you always want to try to get more yards out of the throws that you make, but there’s times where we try to throw it to him too as an effort to get him the football. Really if you think about it on first or second down or you’re not trying to get a specific number of yardage, you add those pass catches up with those runs and that’s partly how the back’s production is figured in.” [Related: Joe Haden misses practice with oblique injury]
