Browns RB Trent Richardson practicing, “full go” for training camp

BEREA — Browns running back Trent Richardson has been practicing the last few days and will have no restrictions when full-squad training camp opens Thursday.
“He has been full go,” coach Rob Chudzinski said this morning in a pre-camp meeting with writers.
Richardson was bothered by a sore lower leg during offseason workouts and missed mandatory minicamp in June. But he’s been working out in Florida and reported to camp early with the rookies and others coming off injuries.
“He’s been practicing the last few days and looks good,” Chudzinski said.
Richardson is hoping to stay healthy in his second season. He started 15 games last year – he missed the finale with an ankle injury – but had arthroscopic knee surgery that cost him the preseason, then played much of the year with broken ribs.
He rushed for 950 yards, a 3.6 average and 11 touchdowns. He added 51 catches for 367 yards and a touchdown.
** Chudzinski said quarterback Brandon Weeden will continue to get the first-team repetitions. Jason Campbell will work with the second team and Brian Hoyer the third team.
** Receiver David Nelson (knee) and rookie offensive lineman Chris Faulk (knee) will open camp on the active physically unable to perform list. They will work with trainers and are eligible to be activated at any time.
** Rookie free safety Jamoris Slaughter (Achilles) has been cleared and is practicing. He’s a sixth-round pick out of Notre Dame.
