After today’s game against the Colts, Browns running back Trent Richardson told the media that his rib injury is worse than people think.
Richardson left today’s game early and never returned  because of his ribs.
“Coach didn’t think I was as I usually am,” said Richardson, per the Akron Beacon-Journal. “That’s something I have to swallow. It’s a process trying to get back. The injury I have is much bigger than what folks think it is, and I don’t want to do anything to hurt the team.
“I’m not myself out there right now. You look at me, I guess I’m not running hard like I’m used to, so I’m not out there right now. So it is worse than what people think it is.”
I get the feeling that Richardson won’t play next week, but we’ll see what happens as the week goes on.
