Browns RB Richardson practices Friday

Akron Beacon-Journal - [Full Article]

Rookie running back Trent Richardson (underwent arthroscopic surgery on left knee Aug. 9) continued to practice [Friday] for the Browns.

Richardson is expected to play Sunday when the Browns host the Philadelphia Eagles in the regular-season opener for both teams.

Fantasy Impact: 

If Richardson does, in fact, play, it will be interesting to see how much of a workload the rookie gets. It could be a good matchup against an Eagles defense that enters with a lot of questions, specifically at linebacker. Right now, we rank Richardson 21st among RBs in a standard league, and that's in the flex-range for your lineup, which is probably a safe spot for Week 1.
