Trent Richardson has rib injury

ESPN - [Full Article]

Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson is sore after taking a Bengals' helmet to the ribs.

Richardson was limited Sunday after he was injured in the first quarter, but the Cleveland Browns overcame the loss of their top offensive player with a 34-24 win over Cincinnati to snap 11-game losing streak that stretched back to last November.

Richardson will have an MRI on his ribs Monday, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Fantasy Impact: 

It's being called a rib cartilage injury and he's day-to-day. Richardson finished with just 37 yards on 14 carries. Montario Hardesty picked up the slack and rushed for 56 yards and scored his first touchdown in the NFL. Hardesy would likely be a key pickup for Richardson owners should his injury turn out to be something that causes him to miss time. It's looking like TRich could end up a dreaded game-time call.
