Cleveland rookie running back Trent Richardson returned to practice on Monday for the first time since undergoing surgery to remove torn cartilage in his left knee on Aug. 9. The No. 3 overall pick out of Alabama may be available to the Browns for Sunday's opener against the Eagles. With his dreadlocks flowing out of his orange helmet and a black rubber sleeve on his knee - which has been operated on twice since he helped the Crimson Tide win a national championship in January - Richardson took some snaps with Cleveland's first-team offense during the portion of practice open to the media, then had a short quiz on his assignments with running backs coach Gary Brown (he passed)

After losing to Alabama in the second game of the 2010 season, Penn State left Tuscaloosa with a lot of haunting memories, perhaps the worst being watching its defensive players bounce off running back Trent Richardson like so many gnats off a windshield. The 5-foot-11, 224-pound Richardson, filling in for Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram, rushed for 144 yards - still his career high - on that muggy night, and caught four passes for 46 yards in the Crimson Tide's 24-3 victory.

Ben Tate signed a two-year, $7 million free-agent deal on Saturday with the Cleveland Browns, who have been desperate to find a quality every-down running back since trading Trent Richardson to Indianapolis early last season. The 25-year-old Tate, who spent the last four years with Houston, is excited to begin a new chapter with the Browns. "I feel like now that I've been given this opportunity that I can be one of the top backs in the league," he said in a teleconference. "I'm going to let my play speak for itself.

ARIZONA STATE has hired Todd Graham as its next football coach. Arizona State athletic director Lisa Love announced yesterday that Graham will replace Dennis Erickson, who was dismissed following a 6-6 season in which the Sun Devils dropped their final four games. Graham spent just one season in Pittsburgh, where he led the Panthers to a 6-6 mark and a tie for second place in the Big East. The move caps a tumultuous season for the Panthers, who announced in September that they're leaving the Big East for the ACC by 2014 and will now be looking for their fourth head coach in the last 13 months.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Trent Richardson swept the Cleveland Browns off their feet, or at least one notable member of the franchise. The former Crimson Tide tailback probably left a lasting impression on Browns running backs coach Gary Brown on Thursday during Round 2 of Alabama's pro day. Richardson bowled over Brown, a still-sturdy, eight-year NFL veteran runner, in a blocking drill. So a potential suitor - the Browns have the fourth pick in April and need a running back - at least knows Richardson packs a wallop.

IT'S ALWAYS funny until somebody gets hurt. Colts running back Trent Richardson and special-teams returner Josh Cribbs - both former Browns players - have vowed to dive into the Dawg Pound if they score against Cleveland on Sunday. That's like wearing a Cowboys jersey at an Eagles game. You can do it, but things might get ugly. Browns head coach Mike Pettine - who coached at North Penn and William Tennent high schools - is pretty sure Richardson and Cribbs won't get a warm welcome.

NEW ORLEANS - Alabama's players whooped it up amid the confetti and fireworks Monday night after winning the BCS championship, having stewed for two months about their first meeting with top-ranked Louisiana State. With a smothering display of old-school football, the No. 2 Crimson Tide blew out the Tigers, 21-0, for their second national title in three years. Coach Nick Saban accepted the trophies Tuesday morning and admitted that he might have savored it more than the title two years ago. "To be honest with you, I think I maybe did," Saban said.

WATCHING Mychal Kendricks on Monday night, Emmanuel Acho could see exactly why Kendricks is considered a rising star in the Eagles' defense. Acho was on the sideline when the Indianapolis Colts snapped the ball for their second play from scrimmage. The Colts ran Trent Richardson to the right side. Trent Cole forced him wider. Kendricks knifed through and dropped Richardson for a 4-yard loss, then danced a herky-jerky jig. "Shoots through the line of scrimmage, gets a tackle for a loss, then shows his emotion, as Kendricks always does," Acho said yesterday.

INDIANAPOLIS - For much of the first half, the Eagles' defense looked as if it was determined to revitalize the career of the Colts' struggling running back, Trent Richardson, and his sidekick, ex-Giant Ahmad Bradshaw. Since the Colts acquired Richardson early last season from the Cleveland Browns for a first-round draft pick, he has not come anywhere close to living up to expectations. He averaged only 2.9 yards per carry in 14 games last season, and had only 20 yards on six carries in the Colts' season-opening loss to the Denver Broncos.

STOPPING THE Packers this week is largely about stopping Eddie Lacy. Seneca Wallace is a veteran quarterback, and he'll be better with some time to prepare than he was when he was thrown into Green Bay's Monday night home loss to the Bears. But Wallace's arm shouldn't beat you, not if Nick Foles and the Eagles' offense are even half as impressive as they were Sunday at Oakland. No, for the Packers to win Sunday, it sure seems Lacy and the running game will have to carry the load.

THE QUESTION of the week came from Joe Malizia, an old friend of the Fantasy Football department who is a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Drum in upstate New York. He asked whether it was time to drop Colts running back Trent Richardson? Malizia, 40, grew up in Roxborough and is headed to Afghanistan for a short deployment after the first of the year. Fantasy has always been a way for him to stay tethered to family and friends back here. About 10 years ago, we wrote a story about an Oakland-based group that had a draft in 1963 and is widely considered the first fantasy football league.

PHOENIX - The NFL wants to put the shoulder back into football and take the helmet out. It took a significant step toward accomplishing that Wednesday when the league's owners overwhelmingly approved a rule-change proposal that will make it illegal for offensive or defensive players to initiate "forcible contact" outside the tackle box by delivering a blow with the crown of the helmet. The proposal passed by a 31-1 vote. The only club to vote against it was the Cincinnati Bengals.

GUY IN our league lost in the playoffs last week because Ryan Mallett threw an interception at about 11:30 on Monday night. It wasn't actually the interception, but the ensuing touchdown against the Patriots' defense that caused this guy to lose. If the Pats had held Houston to seven points, he would have gotten a three-point bonus. But the final score was 42-14 and my friend lost by two. In fantasy, there is no such thing as garbage time. This and that Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson has been ruled out for this week's game at Chicago because of a hamstring injury.

Tim Tebow might add a new job title to an already-lengthy list. The do-it-all backup quarterback could see time at running back in the New York Jets' banged-up backfield against the New England Patriots on Sunday. "That's a possibility," coach Rex Ryan said Thursday. "The thing about Tim - with him being a football player like we've always talked about - by playing quarterback, he knows all the positions. So, can you plug him in at running back? Can you plug him in at tight end or whatever?

AS IMPRESSIVE as Robert Griffin III's first couple of weeks have been, Washington's 31-28 loss to the Rams on Sunday revealed one glaring weakness in the rookie's game: He only plays quarterback. And unless Mike Shanahan can figure out a way to start his budding star at cornerback, linebacker, offensive line and all of the other positions required to win football games, the Redskins will struggle to compete with any degree of consistency. Forget about Washington covering the three points it is giving to the Bengals Sunday as home favorites: It will be fortunate if it doesn't turn A.J. Green and BenJarvus Green-Ellis into first-ballot Hall of Famers.
