Berea, Ohio • Trent Richardson doesn't think Miami's defense stopped Cleveland's running game last week. The Browns slammed on their own brakes.

Richardson only carried the ball 13 times for 47 yards in the Browns' 23-10 loss, and on Thursday the second-year back said he wants to get the ball much more Sunday when Cleveland visits Baltimore.

Richardson wasn't second-guessing coach Rob Chudzinski or offensive coordinator Norv Turner, but he made it clear to his coaches that he would like a heavier workload.

Last season, Richardson gained 105 yards on 25 carries in his second game against the defending Super Bowl champion Ravens, whom he respects but called "bullies."

Turner would like to get the ball in Richardson's hands more, but said the offensive line has to do a better job blocking for that to happen.
