BEREA, Ohio – Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden may still play in the Cleveland Browns' final game.
Coach Pat Shurmur said Monday that Richardson's sprained left ankle and Weeden's sore right shoulder are being evaluated. He did not rule out either playing for the Browns (5-10) against the Steelers (7-8) on Sunday.
Both first-round picks were hurt in a 34-12 loss in Denver. Weeden sustained his injury on a third-quarter sack. Richardson got hurt when Colt McCoy, who replaced Weeden at quarterback, rolled over on the running back's leg after being hit on Cleveland's second-to-last offensive play.
Shurmur also spoke with Josh Cribbs, expressing disappointment with the kick returner's profane tweets to fans after the loss.
