Two First-Round Picks Limited

Browns running back Trent Richardson's status remained the same in practice on Thursday, while the Eagles' first-round pick was added to the injury report.

Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox was a limited participant because of a knee injury, but he said following practice that it would not be an issue for Sunday's game.

Richardson, meanwhile, was limited once again with the surgically repaired knee that caused him to miss the entire preseason. Browns head coach Pat Shurmur seemed optimistic that Richardson will be available as he told reporters that "there haven't been any setbacks in his recovery."

The rest of the Eagles' injury report was good for the team as the entire team was a full participant except for Cox and wide receiver Riley Cooper, who is out for Sunday's game with the collarbone injury that sidelined him all preseason. Safety Colt Anderson is also out for Sunday, but he was a full participant. The other players listed on the injury report for the Eagles are: safety Nate Allen (hamstring), defensive end Jason Babin (calf), linebacker Jamar Chaney (hamstring), running back Dion Lewis (hamstring) and linebacker Casey Matthews (ankle). Offensive lineman Nate Menkin and defensive tackle Cedric Thornton were removed from the injury report.

Three players missed practice again for the Browns - offensive linemen Oniel Cousins (ankle) and John Greco (calf) and starting linebacker James-Michael Johnson (ribs/oblique). Johnson is not expected to play Sunday and will be replaced by rookie L.J. Fort.

Five players, including Richardson, were limited for the Browns - tight end Jordan Cameron (groin), quarterback Thad Lewis (thumb), running back Chris Ogbonnaya (ankle) and tight end Ben Watson (thigh). Four players who were limited Wednesday were full participants Thursday - defensive back Eric Hagg (illness), cornerback Dimitri Patterson (knee) and fellow defensive backs Ray Ventrone (hamstring) and Usama Young (thigh).

In a non-injury note, Shurmur said that cornerback Joe Haden practiced Thursday. Haden was suspended by the league for four games for violating the policy regarding performance-enhancing substances. Haden appealed the suspension and will play unless the league notifies him that he lost the appeal. Typically, the NFL will not make such an announcement this late in the week.
