The Browns described Trent Richardson’s knee surgery as “successful” and “routine” and expect the rookie running back to be ready for the season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Richardson had arthroscopic surgery remove a “loose particle” that was irritating the left knee. It was performed by noted sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews in Richardson’s hometown of Pensacola, Fla.
Andrews also performed a ‘scope surgery on Richardson’s left knee on Feb. 3 to repair torn meniscus cartilage, and repaired torn ligaments on each of his ankles in his freshman and sophomore high school seasons.
Coach Pat Shurmur said in a statement:
“Trent Richardson underwent a successful routine arthroscopic procedure today on his left knee. It was performed by Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Fla. 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.”
