Browns' Richardson rolling


BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Trent Richardson has a quick response when Browns coaches ask him if he needs a break during games.

"I'm good," he tells them. Last week, Richardson was much better than good as he rushed for 109 yards and scored two touchdowns, one on a spectacular run after catching a short pass in Cleveland's 34-27 loss at Cincinnati. The first-round draft pick lived up to enormous expectations in his second NFL game, showing an ability to break off a big play from anywhere on the field.

While his performance was impressive, Richardson, who missed the preseason following knee surgery, said it didn't mean as much to him because the Browns lost and remain winless going into Sunday's matchup with the Buffalo Bills.

Now that he appears healthy, Richardson's workload may increase as the Browns look to end an 8-game losing streak dating to last season.
