BEREA, Ohio — Trent Richardson’s ailing left knee may be more seriously injured than the Cleveland Browns thought.

The team issued a one-sentence statement Wednesday saying that the running back, picked No. 3 overall in April’s draft, will see a specialist on Thursday. The statement says: “Trent Richardson is traveling to Pensacola, Fla., where he will have his left knee further evaluated by Dr. James Andrews tomorrow.”

Richardson, who played at Alabama, had an MRI in Cleveland on Tuesday. Results have not been revealed. He is going to see Andrews for a second opinion. Andrews has been Richardson’s surgeon since the running back was a high school star. He performed the surgery to repair a torn meniscus in February. In most cases after such an operation, swelling in the knee is not uncommon and Richardson wore a protective sleeve on the leg during organized team activities and mini-camps in May and June. The Feb. 3 surgery caused him to miss some portions of the NFL combine before the draft.
