Found October 22, 2012 on 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 of NFL.com. "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.
