Trent Richardson Nominated For NFL Rookie Of The Week

Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson, who rushed for 109 yards and a touchdown in a Week 2 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, has been nominated for the NFL's Rookie of the Week award. It is undoubtedly a small consolation after a tough loss, but the recognition highlights what was an impressive performance by the first-round pick. Richardson is up for the award along with St. Louis Rams punter John Hekker, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

The winner of the award will be determined by a fan vote. The polls opened at 9 a.m. ET on Tuesday and close at 3 p.m ET on Friday. Votes can be cast at NFL.com/rookies. The five players will also be eligible to be voted by fans as the league's Rookie of the Year.

The Browns are certainly hoping that this is the first of many nominations for their prized rookie.
