Browns injuries: Trent Richardson, Brandon Weeden miss practice

Dustin Bradford

Cleveland's first-round picks from the 2012 NFL Draft missed practice on Wednesday, as the Browns get ready to take on the Steelers in Week 17.

Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson were among the Cleveland Browns who did not participate in practice on Wednesday, as the Browns get ready to finish off the 2012 season against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17.

Richardson was held out of practice with an ankle injury. Richardson was carted off the field during Cleveland's Week 16 loss to the Denver Broncos, and was seen in a walking boot on Sunday night. With the Browns having nothing left to play for in Week 17, it seems unlikely that Cleveland will risk the health of its first-round pick.

Weeden's status for Sunday's contest is in doubt as well. Weeden suffered a sprained shoulder during Cleveland's loss to Denver and might not suit up in Week 17. Cleveland recently signed free-agent quarterback Josh Johnson, which could be a major indicator that Weeden will miss Cleveland's 2012 finale.

Tight end Jordan Cameron and quarterback Colt McCoy also missed practice.

Joshua Cribbs, Tashaun Gipson, Ishmaa'ily Kitchen, Juqua Parker, Frostee Rucker and Joe Thomas were limited in practice.
