The Cleveland Browns got a piece of good news for their offensive backfield Monday when starting running back Trent Richardson returned to practice.
He had missed a few days with a bruised right shin sustained last week.
It remains unclear if he'll play Thursday night against the St. Louis Rams.
"It was good to have him back out there, but I have not decided anything about Thursday night in regard to Trent," Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said. "Yes, we want to work him back in, but we are going to be smart with him, just like we've been saying all along."
Richardson rushed for a team-high 950 yards and caught 51 passes last season, and the Browns have big plans for him.
"Now that Trent is practicing again, we'll go from there," Chudzinski said. "We'll see how he looks tomorrow and Wednesday, then make a decision about what we're going to do against St. Louis."
