NFL Injury Report:
While Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson was
able to start Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts, the rookie was
eventually removed from the game by coach Pat Shurmur, reports Kareem Copeland
"We just kind of didn't
feel like he could play as effective as he'd been," Shurmur said. "He
wanted to play."
Richardson has been hampered by a rib injury which appeared
to slow him in the first half. He had eight carries for eight yards and two
catches for 11 yards. He didn’t ask to come out of the game after the first
half, but Shurmur and the Browns’ coaching staff thought it was the right
decision for the team.
Richardson initially admitted that his injury was “pretty
bad” and that Shurmur made a “great decision,” but he went on to question it a
bit noting that he felt he “should have been in the game.”
Though he was able to start, Richardson said following the
game that his injury is “much bigger” than people think. He says there isn’t
much pain involved, but he doesn’t feel like himself at this point.

It hurt me inside not being out there. I didn’t want to come out. [Coach Pat Shurmur] knows what’s best, he made his decision. You will have to ask him [if it was the right decision]. For me, I thought I should have been in the game, but that’s any athlete, anyone who has that fight in him and is competitive. [...] [The injury] is worse than people think. I’m not myself out...
Since the Browns head coach doesn’t have the mental capacity to make the determination about Trent Richardson’s health it is time for the Browns new owner to step in and force Shurmur to sit T-Rich until he is healthy enough to come back strong. The Cleveland Browns have a very able running back in Montario Hardesty who could step in without even missing a beat. Hardesty has...

Don’t want to hurry back Juan…
Richardson was benched in the second half of last week’s game due to his inability to play at his normal high level. The Browns knowing he is the key to their offense may choose to shut him down till after their bye week.
Ed Werder had this to say:
“The team (is) now discussing whether to hold [Richardson] out through the bye week to allow...
The head coach of the Cleveland Browns told his team after they lost we’ve got to get ready for the San Diego Chargers next week, just like we got ready for the Colts this week after a win, we now must focus on getting ready for the Chargers after a loss. It is almost as though Shurmur excuses his team for losing when he says things to them like, “don’t worry half the teams...
BEREA The Browns headed to Indianapolis thinking they would be able to successfully run the ball against the banged up Colts. Just a week earlier, the Jets ran rough shod over Indianapolis.
However, the Browns rushed for just 55 yards on 17 carries for a dismal 3.2 average.
Pat Shurmur was asked what the problem is with the running game. Is it that Trent Richardson isnt healthy?...
Jimmy Haslam shows how he feels about the decision to punt in the 4th quarter
If Pat Shurmur thought he was embroiled when the team was 0-5 he ain’t seen nothing yet. Pat Shurmur will be able to say things to defend himself, but the second-guessing is just too obvious on this day to be baseless. Yes, Shurmur called what should have been a go-ahead TD pass to Josh Gordon on 3rd...
During his Monday press conference with the Cleveland media, Pat Shurmur revealed that Phil Taylor will be returning to practice after missing the first seven games of the season.
And not a moment too soon, considering that Ahtyba Rubin wasn’t able to play the full game against the Colts with his calf injury. Maybe someday the Browns will have a full complement of defensive linemen...
Another first. This time, I spoke with Jacob about the Browns and the Indians. The Browns are coming off of their loss to the Indianapolis Colts and the Indians are still working on publicizing the Terry Francona hire.
How insane were Browns fans to predict a victory after the Bengals win?
