Browns’ Trent Richardson to See Specialist About Sore Left Knee

Don't Miss Out —

Aug. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson, the third pick in this year’s National Football League draft, will have his ailing left knee further evaluated by a specialist tomorrow, the team said in a statement.

Richardson, who was a Heisman Trophy finalist after helping the University of Alabama win the national title, had arthroscopic surgery on his knee Feb. 3. The rookie missed the Browns’ practice yesterday because of soreness in the knee.

The Browns traded up one spot in April’s draft to select Richardson, who rushed for 1,679 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior at Alabama last season. He signed a four-year contract last month that ESPN said is worth $20.4 million.

The Browns, whose rushing offense ranked 28th out of 32 NFL teams last year in going 4-12, open the regular season on Sept. 9 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
