Browns | Trent Richardson unlikely to play Thursday

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson (shin) did not participate in team drills Tuesday, Aug. 6, at practice, and he is unlikely to play in the team's preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 8, against the St. Louis Rams. His absence would be precautionary, however, as his shin injury isn't believed to be serious.

Fantasy Tip: If Thursday's game were regular season, Richardson would be ready to suit up, but it's smart of the team to keep him sidelined. Fantasy owners in early draft leagues will be grateful seeing him in a ball cap and perhaps street clothes, especially with the rash of season-ending injuries we've seen in practice lately.
