Browns | Could reduce Trent Richardsons workload
12.15.2012 8:18:12 AM EST
Updating a previous item, Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Brad Childress said the team is 'not there' when it comes to benching RB Trent Richardson (ribs), but he could see a reduction in snaps. 'Are we going to give him a series every now and then, or every third series or something to that nature?' Childress said. 'Yeah, we talk about that.' The lack of big plays has been a problem for Richardson. He is seventh in the NFL in attempts yet has just two plays for more than 20 yards. Meanwhile, RB Montario Hardesty is averaging 4.7 yards per carry this season.
