Cleveland Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson returned to practice Monday. It's his first practice since he had surgery on his left knee Aug. 9. It's unclear whether Richardson will be ready in time to play in Sunday's season-opener. Here were some early observations on Richardson from reporters.
