Trent Richardson Tentatively Scheduled To Undergo Minor Procedure

On Wednesday night, ESPN insider Chris Mortensen tweeted that Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson has been tentatively penciled in to undergo an arthroscopic surgery when he meets with famed sports surgeon, Dr. James Andrews on Thursday.

The procedure is considered minor and will be used to clean up loose particles of cartilage around the knee. This surgery has nothing to do with the meniscus repair Richardson had back in Feb. (also performed by Andrews) and is considered a proactive attempt to stop a future injury.

The 21-year old back is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, if not sooner.
