Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson says that he may always have to deal with lingering pain due to last season’s rib injury. Buried in this weekend’s mailbag from The Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot, it appears that the rib injury which cost Richardson some explosiveness in 2012—the rookie sustained broken ribs in Week 6—may always be an issue. Richardson, last year’s third-overall pick, says that he may have to deal with pain throughout his career, but remains confident in his effectiveness. Cabot added that Richardson will be 100 percent for training camp this season and will not have to shoulder as much of the load as he did under Pat Shurmur a season ago. “[New Browns head coach Rob] Chudzinski stressed that Richardson won’t have to carry the load by himself this year,” said Cabot. “The club will change it up with Montario Hardesty, Chris Ogbonnaya and now newcomer Dion Lewis.” The 21-year old carried the ball 267 times in 2012, tallying 950 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was also heavily featured in the passing game, hauling in 51 passes for 367 yards and a touchdown. [Related: As the highest-paid player on the Browns, is Joe Thomas’ value diminishing?]
