Trent Richardson Begins Rehab In Pool, Mike Holmgren Has 'Fingers Crossed' He'll Be Back By Opener

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson began running in a pool Wednesday, as his rehab from a knee injury continues to progress. The team hopes to have him running on the field sometime next week.

Team president Mike Holmgren told reporters that his "fingers are crossed" that Richardson will be ready to play in the team's season opener on Sept. 9 vs. the Philadelphia Eagles.

Richardson has been out of practice since early August when he got his knee scoped by Dr. James Andrews. It was the second surgery administered to Richardson by Andrews since the running back left the Alabama Crimson Tide.
