Browns RB Trent Richardson: 'Injury-prone is not going to be me'

I don't know who is calling Browns running back Trent Richardson injury-prone after one year in the NFL, but he responded to that tag on Thursday.
"I know in my mind, well, everybody knows that it's not going to be near like last year, being hurt and injured," Richardson said, via the Chronicle-Telegram. "Injury-prone is not going to be me, and I just can't wait to really get back up and running."
Last year, Richardson underwent preseason knee surgery, played through most of the season with broken ribs and picked up a sprained ankle. Richardson is currently sidelined due to a strained muscle in his shin.

Fantasy Analysis:

I know that's a bunch of injuries in a short period of time, but I'm not fretting about Richardson turning into the next Darren McFadden -- a tantalizing talent who is consistently dinged and frustrates fantasy owners. It's way too soon for that kind of talk. Richardson is a first-round pick.
