Browns Game, Flesh Eating Bacteria Victim, Back to School Tips

Trent Richardson underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Thursday. It was performed by Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, FL.  Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur said they expect Richardson to make a speedy recovery, and expect him to be ready for the season opener on September 9th against the Philadelphia Eagles. The running back was the team's #1 pick, and third overall pick in April's draft. You can catch the Browns 1st pre-season game right here on CBS 19 Friday evening starting at 7:00 p.m.

A Texas man is recovering after his leg was amputated because of flesh-eating bacteria. He apparently became infected during a fishing trip. "It was a shock because I know he loves to fish and that was just one of those crazy things that happens," said Maxine Schwarze, a neighbor. Schwarze says that her neighbor, Keith Korth, was fishing over the weekend and somehow became infected with flesh-eating bacteria or necrotizing fasciitis. He was flown to Houston's Methodist Hospital where his leg was amputated about two inches above the knee. "I've seen patients where, you know, they're on a fishing trip, they go to sleep and they woke up in the morning and all of their leg is red," Dr. Luis Ostrosky said. "It's very fast. This bacteria can go about an inch an hour."
