Fans of the Cleveland Browns and fantasy football players everywhere are on red alert after news of how running back Trent Richardson, No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft, is making a trip to Pensacola, Fla. to visit Dr. James Andrews to have a minor procedure on his knee.

If you were thinking of drafting Richardson early in your fantasy draft, think again.
