After spending all of the preseason limited with a knee injury, Browns RB Trent Richardson is practicing in full this week, and should be much more conditioned and ready to play against the Bengals on Sunday than he was last week against the Eagles, whom he had only 39 rushing yards on 19 carries against.

 

It was an inauspicious debut for Browns QB Brandon Weeden, who went 12/35 for 118 yards with four interceptions, two fumbles, and a 5.1 rating in Sunday’s 1-point loss to the Eagles. He knows he played bad, but is ready to move on and won’t let it affect him vs. the Bengals Sunday.

 

Browns TE Ben Watson (thigh) was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice, the same injury that limited him last week even though he was able to play against the Eagles, and he’s expected to play against the Bengals on Sunday.

 

Steelers RB Rashard Mendenhall (knee) was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice, but it is still unknown if he will debut this week against the Jets. Meanwhile, RB Jonathan Dwyer was held out of Steelers practice on Wednesday with a foot injury.
