CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Trent Richardson has been sprinting pain-free, is 100 percent healthy and expects to be ready for the start of Browns training camp next week.
"I have no pain at all in the leg,'' he said by phone before a Tuesday pool workout in Pensacola, Fla. "I'll be ready for camp and I'll be ready to go for the season."
Richardson, who sat out the mandatory June minicamp and the final week of organized team activities with a muscle strain in his right shin, said he won't miss a beat when training camp opens July 25 with a 4 p.m. practice.
"I'll be full-go right from the get-go and y'all out there will see me flying around," he said. "I can't wait to get out there and I can't wait for the first game. I've been waiting forever for this season and I know it's going to be a good one for us.''
Richardson began his running program June 24 in Pensacola, running two days in the water to every one on land. But recently, he's kicked it up to two days on land, two days in the water.
"I've been doing sprints, a lot of plyometrics (jump-training) and a lot of quick-twitch work," he said. "It's a lot of muscle-memory stuff designed to get the explosion back."
