The Browns rookie running back is aware the Philadelphia Eagles piled up 191 yards -- 123 by Le Sean Mc Coy, who got 121 in the second half -- last week in a 19-17 win over the Giants.On a conference call with New York reporters, Richardson was asked if he thinks he can rack up some yards against the defending Super Bowl champions."Oh yeah," he said. Now he just needs a few more blocks."If we put our hat on a number (block), just cover them up, I think we can get good yardage on them," Richardson said.Over 20 seasons as a college assistant, Burns has produced versatile running backs who have been effective in every phase of the game.
Richardson has rushed for 222 yards on 64 carries this season, and the first-round running back seems to be getting stronger after missing the entire exhibition season after undergoing knee surgery.
The Giants seem susceptible to the run, and Richardson hopes Cleveland's offensive line can create some cracks in New York's front seven."We have to run some outside zone and really need to cover number 90 (Jason Pierre-Paul) as much as we can, and big (Jason) Tuck," Richardson said.
He also spent the 2016 season as the Tide’s special teams coordinator, helping Eddie Jackson post one of the highest punt return averages in school history while punter JK Scott ranked fourth nationally in punting at 47.2 yards per kick.
In 2015, Henry stepped into the starting role and flourished with a school- and SEC-record 2,219 yards on 395 carries and 28 rushing touchdowns.
Sophomore Bo Scarbrough came on strong at the end of the season to finish with 954 yards and a team-high 13 touchdowns on 125 carries.
