The Cleveland Browns are not going to the NFL Playoffs once again this season. They have struggled through growing pains throughout the 2012 NFL regular season, and may be forced to do so even more in the Week 17 finale against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Due to various injuries to countless starters, the Browns may be forced to suffer through what could be their toughest game all season long, as Trent Richardson, Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy may all watch this one from the sidelines.
According to multiple sources, the Browns have already ruled Richardson out for the season finale on Sunday on the road against the Steelers. It never looked likely that Richardson would play, but the odds now appear to be zero. He will not get the opportunity to rush for 50 more yards to reach 1,000 in his rookie season.
