Trent Richardson still not 100 percent

Browns running back Trent Richardson doesn't think he'll be fully healthy until sometime in the offseason, but that's not going to stop him for the rest of this season.

With nagging injuries, Cleveland Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson doesn't foresee being completely healthy until the offseason, but he still plans on playing through this season's end, according to a report by Daryl Ruiter, 92.3 The Fan Browns Beat Reporter, on Thursday.

In Week 6, Richardson suffered a rib injury in the Browns' 34-24 win at home over the Cincinnati Bengals, and the ailment still hampers his running. That said, Richardson has gained 755 yards on the ground in his first professional season, and his six rushing touchdowns rank seventh in the league in that category.

Additionally, the rookie out of Alabama has 41 receptions for 316 yards and a touchdown. In Cleveland's 20-14 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday, Richardson racked up 85 yards on 29 carries, also tacking on what turned out to be the game-winning 15-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.

Richardson and the Browns travel to Oakland to take on the Raiders this Sunday. Kickoff is set for 4:25 p.m. ET.
