The Browns expect to see rookie running back Trent Richardson back on the field soon. The Browns' drafted Richardson No. 3 overall out of Alabama with the hopes of jump-starting the team's running game. His second arthoscopic surgery temporarily sidelined those plans, but the Browns say things are looking up.

From ProFootballTalk.com:

That’s what coach Pat Shurmur said Sunday, via comments transcribed and distributed by the team. “He’s getting better every day so his progress has been outstanding,” Shurmur said of the third overall pick in the 2012 draft.  “I think he’s 10 days out now, so he’s about where we thought he’d be at this point, probably a little bit ahead of that.  He’ll be out here soon.”
