Trent Richardson to visit Dr. James Andrews

Recommended Posts

So much for Trent Richardson’s knee being nothing to worry about.

 

Whatever the Browns’ medical staff saw on Richardson’s MRI, they’re worried enough that they’re sending him to see the renowned sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews, who performed arthroscopic surgery on the same knee in February.

 

“Trent Richardson is traveling to Pensacola, Fla., where he will have his left knee further evaluated by Dr. James Andrews tomorrow,” Browns coach Pat Shurmur said.

 

Richardson hasn’t been practicing this week because of soreness in the knee and isn’t expected to play in the Browns’ preseason opener against the Lions on Friday. The Browns traded up to draft Richardson, viewing him as a big-time offensive playmaker for years to come. A visit to Dr. Andrews before ever playing in a game was not what Cleveland was hoping for.

 

Hopefully it's nothing serious.

 

I'm really looking forward to seeing what Richardson can do at this level.

Hopefully it's nothing... But if they thought it was nothing, would they have sent him to Dr. Andrews? Or maybe they are just being extremely safe?

Aug 8 - 5:10 PM

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Trent Richardson is "tentatively" expected to undergo another knee scope during his Thursday visit with Dr. James Andrews.

Supposedly could come back and play one or two preseason games. I hope he only plays one honestly, I would rather not rush him back and have this thing be a problem down the line.

 

Like a meniscus tear, he will be able to start rehabbing right away (I would assume), so he should be in shape, and it will just be a matter of getting him a little experience prior to the season.

Per Rotoworld.com:

 

Browns coach Pat Shurmur confirmed Trent Richardson's left knee scope and is "hopeful" the rookie will be ready for the season opener.

"Trent Richardson underwent a successful routine arthroscopic procedure today on his left knee," said Shumur. "We anticipate that Trent will make a speedy recovery, and we are hopeful that he will be ready for our Week One game against Philadelphia." Expecting a lighter workload in September, Rotoworld has dropped Richardson from eighth to 14th among fantasy. Aug 9 - 4:57 PM

Entering the draft it was "Man this guy has had knee problems, hope he's alright" and everyone just kind of waved it off once they saw him do drills here and there. Now he's having surgery just weeks before the season begins and is questionable for week 1?

 

Honestly, this guy might turn out to be a great running back in the NFL, but how long will his knees last in the league? Long enough for the Browns to even dig themselves out of the pit that they are already in?

When a pro-sports team sends a player to go see Dr. Andrews he might as well have a post-it note taped to his forehead saying "See you in a few weeks/months!"

Per Rotoworld.com:

 

Browns coach Pat Shurmur stated Sunday that Trent Richardson has made "good progress" in his recovery from an August 9 left knee scope and "might be ahead of schedule."

The Browns anticipate Richardson "back out there soon." While it's nice to hear Richardson's recovery has gone smoothly the past ten days, he remains unlikely to play in any preseason games, which will almost certainly limit his early-season workload. Richardson's left knee problems are also recurring, seeing as he had the same knee scoped on February 3. Richardson's early third-round Average Draft Position still seems pretty optimistic. We'd prefer to wait until the late fourth round or even the fifth before considering him. Aug 19 - 4:34 PM

This is why you don't blow your load on RBs, yeah he could be a great back, but the rest of the draft was stacked with good RBs.

They could have gotten Kalil and DeCastro instead of Richardson and Weeden, lmao.

Browns really needed to give Mccoy another year. Give him some weapons/improved OL, a Kalil/Decastro or Blackmon/Decastro. That Kalil Thomas tackle duo would be the best in the league.

If you have holes everywhere you probably should trade a bunch of picks to move up 1 spot.

For a player that would have undoubtedly been there at number 4. Minnesota's GM totally played the Browns.

Pretty much what happened. I hate to admit it, but the Vikings played it perfectly. Pitted the Browns against themselves and boom.

Eh, we had multiple picks in 2 of the 3 extra picks we gave up. What was it, 4th 6th and 7th? from the extra picks awarded to teams who lost free agents, the name of them escapes me.

 

We really only just secured getting Richardson. The Vikings themselves said other teams were interested. I'm not gonna get to strung up on a trade like that. Not to mention with one of those picks, they took a kicker.
