Browns | Trent Richardson fully healthy

Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson (shin) is no longer wearing protective covering on his right shin and said he is 100 percent healthy. His practice workload increased last weekend, but the team hasn't decided if they'll let him play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 15. "In the back of your mind you've got to realize it's preseason and coach is gonna do the best thing for me to put me in the best position to stay healthy for the whole season," he said. "It's good and bad. I feel I can be ready to go Sept. 8 without playing any preseason. I feel I can be ready with playing preseason." RB Dion Lewis has taken most of the first-team reps when Richardson hasn't practiced.

Fantasy Tip: You should have no reservations about selecting Richardson in the middle to end of Round 1 in fantasy football drafts this year. If you're a bit worried about his health, Lewis appears to be the main handcuff option right now.
