Seems a bit late for this announcement, but here is the release from the Browns this afternoon:

Browns running back Trent Richardson was voted the Pepsi MAX NFL Rookie of the Week for games played on September 13-17, the NFL announced today. He is the first Browns rookie to win a weekly award since Charlie Frye was named the Diet Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week in Week 17 of the 2005 season.

Richardson rushed for 109 yards with a 32-yard touchdown run and caught four passes for 36 yards with a 23-yard score at Cincinnati last Sunday. He became the first Browns rookie to rush for 100-yards in a game since 2003 and his 109 rushing yards are the most of any NFL rookie this year in a single-game.

Richardson was selected from among five finalists through fan votes on NFL.com/rookies. The other finalists were punter Johnny Hekker of the St. Louis Rams, quarterback Andrew Luck of Indianapolis Colts, quarterback Ryan Tannehill of Miami Dolphins and quarterback Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks.

Now let’s just hope T-Rich can build off that success this week against the Bills.
