Trent Richardson was named a captain for the Cleveland Browns' Week 6 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Cleveland Browns have named rookie running back Trent Richardson as their fourth captain for the team's upcoming game against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to SB Nation's Dawgs By Nature. Head coach Pat Shurmur announced the news to the media on Wednesday, while touching up on injury and roster news. Cleveland has used that "fourth captain" spot to award players for one reason or another, with the other three spots going to representatives on offense, defense and special teams.

Richardson had a quote about the honor, as transcribed by Waiting For Next Year:

"It's most definitely [an honor]," said Richardson following Wednesday's practice. "To be a game captain, it means a lot to me. It's an honor and it's a privilege really. It means the guys have a lot of respect for me, it means I've earned and I've learned a lot since I've been here."

The Browns are 0-5 on the season, despite some strong performances from Richardson. He's got 303 rushing yards off of 81 carries, and has added 169 yards through the air. He's got five touchdowns total, with four of them coming on the ground.
