Trent Richardson once again nominated for NFL Rookie of the Week award

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Trent Richardson is nominated for the NFL Rookie of the Week award for Week 9, but he's got some stiff competition.

The Cleveland Browns aren't winning football games, but their rookie running back, Trent Richardson, is playing like the team has hoped thus far. He's still got a lot of adjustments to make, but he's shown that he's a tough runner and is improving every time he's out there. According to the Browns' official website, Richardson is up for the Week 9 Rookie of the Week Award from Pepsi MAX.

Richardson rushed for 105 yards on 25 carries on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, becoming only the second rookie running back to ever rush for 100+ yards against them. It's the third time he's been up for the honors, and if he wins, it would be his second time.

Unfortunately, he has some very tough competition. Quarterback Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts set the rookie record for passing yardage with 433. Doug Martin, the rookie running back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, rushed for a whopping 251 yards and four touchdowns. It seems very likely that one of those two will win it.
