by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4:30 pm ET) Broncos running back Montee Ball "is doing a little bit more each day as he makes what might be a rapid return from an appendectomy, but much of his work remains outside of a team structure," reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Trent Richardson under the gun


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1:35 pm ET) The Colts are focused on getting their rushing game going heading into Saturday's third preseason game against the Saints. Specifically, they want to see more production from Trent Richardson, who's averaged 2.4 yards per carry through two games.

"Trent, he needs to answer the bell and do his job to the best of his ability," general manager Ryan Grigson told ESPN.com. "We're all accountable here. I will say this, there are a lot of backs last year that wouldn't have got [2.4 ypc] considering the amount of people he had in that box and the amount of bodies that were hitting him before he even seemed to get the ball sometimes.

"He's such a hard runner, we know how tough he is, but he's got to produce just like all these guys do on the final 53."

Richardson averaged 2.9 yards per carry last season with Indy. If he continues to flounder, the Colts could turn to Ahmad Bradshaw, who's coming back from a neck injury and scheduled to make his preseason debut Saturday.

Baltimore leads the NFL with 194 rushing yards in the preseason, 69 more than any other team.


Joseph Randle 'really playing outstanding'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Randle, who averaged 3.0 yards per carry last year, said he's bigger, stronger and smarter. "I'm a year smarter in the playbook. I think that's all things that help me play fast," he said. "Now, I'm just working on playing fast every play I'm out there. That comes with practice."

Randle is running third behind DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy got two MRIs on his toe "just to be certain," reports the Philadelphia Inquirer. The results were the same, and "it's not expected to be an issue," the paper said.

Mark Ingram expected to catch more passes


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2014) Saints running back Mark Ingram caught a 23-yard touchdown pass Friday against the Titans, his first receiving score in the NFL. Ingram made a couple guys miss on his way to the end zone.

According to ESPN.com, Ingram stayed on the field during Monday's two-minute drill in practice, catching a pair of passes from Drew Brees. While Pierre Thomas is expected to be the main pass-catching back for New Orleans, Ingram should play a more versatile role than he has in his career, the website said.

"I know I'm an all-purpose back, a complete back," said Ingram, who has 24 receptions in his first three seasons. "I can do everything."


Chip Kelly: LeSean McCoy is fine


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Kelly said he did not know how long the starters will play.
