Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson was voted the NFL Rookie of the Week, the league announced on Friday. (The award has a corporate sponsor name, but we're not seeing any of that money, so ...)
Richardson earned the award after totaling 145 yards and two touchdowns against the Bengals in Cincinnati. Richardson ran for 109 yards, scoring on a 32-yard rush, and had 36 receiving yards, including a 23-yard touchdown reception.
Richardson, the third overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, is the first Browns player to win the weekly award since the immortal Charlie Frye, who picked up the honors after Week 17 of the 2005 season when he passed for 199 yards in a 20-16 win against Baltimore. (Frye also threw two interceptions and took four sacks that day; must have been a light week for rookies).
Richardson was selected from among five finalists through fan votes on NFL.com/rookies. The other finalists were punter Johnny Hekker of the Rams, quarterback Andrew Luck of the Colts, quarterback Ryan Tannehill of the Dolphins and quarterback Russell Wilson of the Seahawks.
After the regular season, five players will be nominated for NFL Rookie of the Year honors. Fans can vote for the winner on NFL.com/rookies throughout the month of January. The NFL Rookie of the Year will be announced at the second annual NFL Honors awards show in New Orleans on Feb. 2.
