Browns rookie RB Trent Richardson will visit Dr. James Andrews on Thursday to have his left knee examined, head coach Pat Shurmur said Wednesday.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that Richardson will have a minor arthroscopic surgical procedure and that the former Alabama should be ready for the regular-season opener vs. Philadelphia on Sept. 9.

Andrews performed surgery on Richardson's left knee a little more than six months ago. Richardson missed practice Tuesday because of the knee, which Shurmur described as "sore."

The No. 3 overall pick in April's draft, Richardson is expected to be the Browns' featured back this season.

The way we see it

The ESPN report of Richardson's injury being something that isn't expected to limit his readiness for Week One is good news for Cleveland. Montario Hardesty, who has struggled with injuries in his previous two NFL seasons, is listed as Richardson's top backup.
