BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson missed practice Friday to be with his girlfriend during the birth of his third child.
Richardson was not at the team's facility while the team prepared for this week's game against the Super Bowl-champion New York Giants. Browns coach Pat Shurmur said Richardson will travel with the team and play in Sunday's game.
The Browns were forced to practice inside because of rain.
With Richardson out, running backs Montario Hardesty and Chris Ogbonnaya took snaps with Cleveland's starting offense.
Richardson, who missed the entire preseason after undergoing knee surgery, has rushed for 22 yards and scored four touchdowns for the Browns (0-4), the AFC's only winless team. The No. 3 overall pick in this year's NFL draft, Richardson leads the Browns with 15 receptions for 122 yards.
