Trent Richardson Has Successful Surgery On Left Knee

The Cleveland Browns got some good news on Trent Richardson on Thursday. Their rookie running back underwent successful surgery on his left knee and is on track to play in Week One.

From ProFootballTalk:

"Trent Richardson underwent a successful routine arthroscopic procedure today on his left knee," coach Pat Shurmur said in a statement released by the team. "It was performed by Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla. We anticipate that Trent will make a speedy recovery, and we are hopeful that he will be ready for our Week One game against Philadelphia."

Montario Hardesty and Brandon Jackson could start for Cleveland if Richardson is unable to go for the first game. It is unclear whether Richardson will play any of the team's preseason games.
