Report: Browns RB Trent Richardson to miss part of training camp

Whenever Louisville basketball player Kevin Ware's gruesome leg injury is mentioned in a story about another injury, well, that can't be a good thing, right? No, Browns running back Trent Richardson's leg did not explode, but Cleveland is apparently being "ultra cautious" with his lower leg strain so a Ware scenario does not develop. That would mean, according to ESPNCleveland.com, sitting the second-year back until August. That time frame would have Richardson missing a portion of the training camp. The report also notes the bruising runner has lost weight as a result of taking medication to combat migraines.

Fantasy Analysis:

Richardson played in 15 games last season, but dealt with knee, ankle and rib injuries throughout his rookie season in which he averaged 3.6 yards on 267 carries. Fantasy owners don't need to be ultra cautious when it comes to pondering T-Rich in drafts, but there is reason for concern considering it will cost you a late first or second round selection to have him on your team. There is no reason to lower Richardson on draft boards because of the current shin woe, but adding up all the injuries sure doesn't help his cause. At least sitting him for the next two months limits the pounding on the leg. Cleveland, whatever it takes to avoid a strain becoming a stress, do that.
