Will The Colts Have RB Richardson On A Short Leash?

Trent Richardson

Colts running back Trent Richardson was obviously behind the rest of his teammates after being acquired just days before the Colts’ Week 3 game against San Francisco, but he didn’t show much progress as the season went on, Mike Wells of ESPN.com reports.

Richardson has to step up to not only avoid being labeled a bust after being taken with the No. 3 pick in the 2012 draft, but also to help the Colts from looking like they got played by the Browns in the trade.

He’ll likely get the first shot at starting over Ahmad Bradshaw and Vic Ballard because the latter two are coming off injuries that cost them almost all of the 2013 season. But Richardson will have to produce right away because it’s unlikely the Colts will wait for him to get going if Bradshaw and Ballard are producing when given the opportunity.

    Richardson is looking more and more like a bust – 2012 – 3.6 yards/attempt; 2013 – 3.4 yards/attempt as a Brown and 2.9 yards/attempt as a Colt. I hope he turns it around because he was a beast at ‘Bama.
