"You always expect your role to get bigger every day when you've got guys done for the year," Richardson told reporters Monday, per The Chronicle-Telegram. "You just got to step up and get in shape. Just take it upon yourself, put the team on your back, whatever it takes."
Browns coach Rob Chudzinksi backed it up, saying: "We want Trent to be able to play as much as possible."
Offensive coordinator Norv Turner this summer touted Richardson as a runner in line for 300-plus carries. Assuming he stays healthy, we'd put that figure closer to 350, likely placing him among the NFL's top-five backs in touches. Richardson's durability is the only question mark standing in the way of a massive campaign for the Browns.
