Browns’ Richardson Will Play Through The Pain

BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Playing with a painful rib cartilage injury he tried to protect with a flak jacket, cstruggled from the outset in Cleveland’s 17-13 loss and was benched at halftime by Browns coach Pat Shurmur, who only needed to call a few plays for his rookie star before realizing he was not going to be effective.

Richardson has no regrets about playing, and he intends to be ready for this Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers.

But the third overall pick in this year’s NFL draft said Wednesday that he has yet to play at full speed this season because of injuries.
