Colts GM Ryan Grigson said he's not sure who will be Indy's starting running back in 2014. "At any point in time you'll know how we do things with the Colts, it's the best players play," he told ESPN. Richardson (shoulder) and Vick Ballard (knee) are returning from injuries while Donald Brown is set to be a free agent.

Trent Richardson: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Richardson underwent a shoulder procedure following the 2013 season that NFL.com's Ian Rapoport was told was "just a scope."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The report adds that the procedure shouldn't hurt Richardson's offseason, which is a plus for the No. 3 pick in the 2012 NFL draft as he tries to make a case to establish himself as the top option in the Colts' backfield in 2014 after averaging just 2.9 yards per carry in 14 games in an Indy uniform this past season.
Richardson carried just three times for one yard in Saturday's playoff loss to the Patriots.

Richardson had 19 carries for 64 rushing yards and four catches on six targets for 38 receiving yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Texans.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Starting running back Donald Brown suffered a stinger in the first quarter of Sunday's game and didn't return, which opened up the door for Richardson. His nine-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter came on a short shovel pass, so he still had to manage his way through the line of scrimmage to get the score. Richardson still hasn't averaged more than 4.0 YPC in a single game this year, but he's gotten much more involved in the passing game as of late, catching nine passes for 106 yards and a touchdown in the last two games. If Brown is forced to miss any time, Richardson will re-take his spot in the starting lineup, although a Week 16 trip to Kansas City isn't exactly fantasy-friendly.
Richardson had six carries for 20 rushing yards and five catches on six targets for 68 receiving yards Sunday against the Bengals.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that heading into Week 13, the Colts plan to demote Richardson to second-string, in favor of Donald Brown.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Richardson, who carried the ball seven times for 15 yards in Week 12, has run 134 times for 392 yards overall this season, for a 2.9 yards per carry average. While Richardson is clearly a part of the Colts' future, it looks like Brown, who has averaged 5.7 yards per carry overall, will get a chance to lead the team's backfield Sunday against the Titans, a scenario that makes it a risky roll of the dice to stick with Richardson, until he gets on track.
Richardson (calf) had seven carries for 15 yards and caught two passes for 11 yards in Sunday’s 40-11 loss at Arizona.

Though Richardson (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, coach Chuck Pagano feels good about the running back playing this weekend, according to Kevin Bowen of Colts.com.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Pagano also noted that the running back aggravated a calf injury, and while it's encouraging that his coach is optimistic about Richardson playing Sunday, the Colts' 4:05 ET kickoff, the Cards' stingy run D (81.4 yards per game) and the emergence of teammate Donald Brown combine to make Richardson a speculative play in Week 12, assuming he is able to suit up.

2012

Becoming a full-time starter for the first time during his junior year at Alabama last season, Richardson totaled 2,017 yards with 24 touchdowns while getting 5.9 YPC. While there's no question he played in a system conducive for big stats in college (producing Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram in 2009), Richardson is widely viewed as the best running back prospect coming into the league since Adrian Peterson. He wasn't able to run the 40 at the NFL Combine after undergoing minor knee surgery, but he can make defenders miss with shifty moves, possesses breakaway speed in the open field and will immediately become one of the NFL's most powerful backs. While few rookie runners enjoyed sustained success last season, and plenty of owners were burned by Ryan Mathews the year prior, that doesn't mean a first year back can't make a major impact in 2012. The Browns are far from an ideal situation, as they averaged just 13.6 ppg last season, but it's possible Brandon Weeden is an upgrade at QB, and it's not like Cleveland's inept offense prevented Peyton Hillis from having a big season in 2010. Most important, team president Mike Holmgren already referred to Richardson as a "three-down back," and after Holmgren traded four picks to move up one spot in order to select him, Richardson will likely be asked to be a workhorse immediately. Richardson is a rookie playing for a bad team that has to face the Ravens and Steelers in 25 percent of its games, but he looks like a special talent who will be one of the league's few "every-down" backs in today's game.
