Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson, the club's top pick in 2012 will be held out of organized team activities and mini-camps until August, says ESPNCleveland's Will Burge.

Richardson has had a leg injury, and the Browns are apparently fearful that the injury could lead to a stress fracture unless Richardson is shut down and allowed to fully recover.

If Richardson is out until August, that would likely jeopardize his availability for the start of training camp.
