Trent Richardson day to day for Browns with rib injury


Cleveland Browns fans can rest easy: Trent Richardson's "flank" appears to be just fine.

Browns coach Pat Shurmur revealed at his Monday news conference that Richardson is "day to day" with a right rib/cartilage injury.

We're here to offer an unscientific explanation for his fantasy owners: It sounds like he'll be fine for a great matchup against the Indianapolis Colts this weekend.

The Browns somehow scored 34 points on Sunday despite getting little help from Richardson on the ground and surviving a stretch of seven straight three-and-outs. Richardson's dramatic in-season improvement has been one of the most fun early season stories to watch.
