Trent Richardson Injury: Pat Shurmur Says Browns Running Back Is Ahead Of Schedule, According To Reports

Cleveland Browns fans have received some good news Sunday evening, as Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal is reporting that running back Trent Richardson may be ahead of schedule in rehabbing his injured left knee.

Richardson had an operation on August 9 to remove cartilage fragments from his knee. While the news is encouraging, there has yet to be an exact timetable for Richardson to make his debut on the field for the Browns. Until then, fans will need to take this news with a grain of salt. In the meantime, expect to see Montario Hardesty and Brandon Jackson to continue seeing most of the reps at running back until Richardson comes back healthy and ready to play.

The Browns selected Richardson with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
