BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns running back Trent Richardson is in full pads and practicing for the first time since Thursday.
The second-year pro was held out of Cleveland's two previous training camp sessions with a bruised right shin, but coach Rob Chudzinski said the move was strictly precautionary. Richardson was inadvertently kicked in the lower right leg during practice Thursday.
Richardson missed the Browns' entire minicamp in June with a lower right shin strain. The third overall pick in the 2012 draft did not play in the preseason last year after undergoing a pair of knee surgeries.
Cleveland opens its preseason schedule Thursday at home against the St. Louis Rams, and Richardson has vowed he will be on the field for the game. Chudzinski will update Richardson's status following practice.
