Browns RB Trent Richardson says he will be ready for action by start of training camp

It has been reported that the Browns will hold running back Trent Richardson out until at least early August to give his leg strain more than enough time to heal. That timetable means Richardson would miss the opening days of training camp, which are expected to take place at some point in the last week of July. But Richardson doesn't want to hear that. According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, Richardson said Wednesday that he will "be ready to return to action by the start of training camp."

Fantasy Analysis:

Richardson certainly wouldn't be the first athlete to express confidence in his own healing abilities. I guess it's worth noting that head coach Rob Chudzinski shares Richardson's expectation, but their optimism should be taken with a grain of salt. The Browns will do whatever is necessary to make sure their franchise running back is at no risk of re-injury. If that leads to some missed training-camp practices, so be it. Richardson should still be drafted as an RB1.
