Trent Richardson conceded that broken ribs affected his performance down the stretch in his rookie season.

"My ribs were broken, and it's tough playing like that," said Richardson. "It's real tough playing like that." Richardson will need 3-4 more weeks before the ribs completely heal. "I still really can't lay flat or on my side," said Richardson. "I know I'll be healthy before next season. I'll be back right in training camp, OTAs, and you'll see me back skinny again. I won't have that vest on."
