Del Rio: Raiders Latavius Murray and Trent Richardson to compete


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio expects Latavius Murray and Trent Richardson to compete for the starting running back spot on the team, per ESPN.

"I think it will be a competitive situation," Del Rio said.

Del Rio also spoke about the fact that he is encouraged by Richardson's potential.

"What I saw when we brought him in and talked to him was a young man that was hungry to kind of leave that portion of his career behind him and start fresh," Del Rio said. "My challenge to him was, 'Look, I don't want you to worry about anything other than coming in here and competing your butt off every day. Come in here and be a great teammate. Come in here and find a role on special teams. Come in here and just grind every day with the hunger you had as a freshman at Alabama.'"


Raiders announce signing of RB Trent Richardson


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/17/2015) The Raiders announced they've signed running back Trent Richardson, who was cut by the Colts last week after two disappointing seasons with the team.

The deal is set to pay Richardson $3.9 million over two years but includes incentives that can raise the deal to $4 million per year, NFL.com reports.

Richardson joins a backfield featuring Latavius Murray, Roy Helu and Marcel Reece. Richardson has averaged 3.3 yards per carry over his career since being drafted No. 3 overall in 2012 by Cleveland.

Richardson scored 12 touchdowns as a rookie but has a total of seven in the past two seasons.


Report: Ex-Colts' Richardson files grievance over January suspension


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Trent Richardson has filed a grievance over his January suspension, according to Pro Football Talk on Friday. Approximately $3.184 million hangs in the balance of Richardson's grievance.

Richardson was cut by the Colts on Thursday after the Colts signed veteran running back Frank Gore when free agency opened on Tuesday. He had an unimpressive two seasons with the Colts that ended in turmoil after he missed a walkthrough before the AFC Championship Game against the Patriots. He was suspended from the game as a result.

Richardson rushed for 950 yards his rookie season with the Browns. He has just 1,082 rushing yards since his rookie season.

Trent Richardson: Colts didn't fit me; My next step, I'll be the starter


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/13/2015) Trent Richardson said that he felt disrespected by the way he was used in Indianapolis, and envisions himself as a starter once he signs with a team in free agency.

"Me and the GM didn't see eye to eye," Richardson told Mike Wells of ESPN. "My next step, I'll be the starter. Indy didn't fit me."

Richardson, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, was cut by the Colts on Thursday after the Colts signed veteran running back Frank Gore when free agency opened on Tuesday. He rushed for 519 yards and three touchdowns, and lost his starting spot to Dan Herron. He was inactive for Indianapolis' two postseason games and even saw some time working on special teams.

"Special teams, scout teams, I did whatever they asked me despite it being a big slap in the face for me," Richardson said. "I really did whatever they asked me to do.

"Right now, I'm training until whoever wants a running back that runs downhill calls," Richardson said. "Whoever it is, I guarantee you it'll be the last place I play at. I guarantee you that. I'll never be traded unless I want to be traded. Being released will never happen again."

Colts waive former Browns third overall pick Trent Richardson


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) The Colts announced that they waived running back Trent Richardson on Thursday. 

Richardson was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Browns after a standout collegiate career at Alabama. His NFL career, however, has yet to pan out. After running for 950 yards and 11 touchdowns as a rookie, the Browns traded him to the Colts for a first-round pick two games into the 2013 season. 

Richardson had an unimpressive two seasons with the Colts that ended in turmoil after he missed a walkthrough before the AFC Championship Game against the Patriots. He was suspended from the game as a result. 

This move came after the Colts signed veteran running back Frank Gore when free agency opened on Tuesday.

Richardson finished the 2014 season with 519 yards and three touchdowns. 

The Colts also announced that they waived running back Michael Hill. 


Colts' Richardson missed practice for wife's complications in pregnancy


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Colts running back Trent Richardson reportedly missed practice before the AFC championship game against the Patriots because his wife was experiencing complications with her pregnancy, according to the Indianapolis Star.

Richardson rushed to the hospital on Jan. 17 to be with his wife during the complications and missed the morning's walkthrough without notifying the team.

Richardson, who did not play in the final two games of the season for conduct detrimental to the team, could be cut without pay for the final year of his contract, according to the report.


Report: Colts, Trent Richardson in midst of rocky relationship


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2015) When the Colts traded a first-round pick to the Browns for running back Trent Richardson in 2013, they probably didn't envision the problems that have risen from someone once considered to be a can't-miss NFL running back.

According to an ESPN report, there appears to be a lot more to Richardson's AFC Championship Game suspension than the simple fact he missed a team walkthrough without notifying the team beforehand.

The report states that multiple incidents have piled up that have frustrated the Colts. After Richardson injured his hamstring in mid-October, his weight ballooned from 225 pounds to 240. When Ahmad Bradshaw fractured his fibula against the Patriots in November, the Colts were unable to get in touch with Richardson until 1 p.m. the next day.

The tipping point was probably that missed walkthrough before the AFC Championship Game. The Colts suspended him for the conference title matchup against New England, and if he's back with Indianapolis next season, he'll be suspended for the opener as well.

Richardson finished the 2014 season with only 519 yards and three touchdowns.


Colts can void RB Trent Richardson's contract


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/27/2015) The Colts can void running back Trent Richardson's $3.18 million guaranteed salary for 2015 because he was suspended for conduct detrimental to the team, reports CBS Sports' Joel Corry, a former agent who's an expert on player contracts.

Richardson, who missed a walkthrough before the AFC title game, received a two-game suspension from the team, general manager Ryan Grigson confirmed. If Indy chooses to keep Richardson, he'd serve the second game of the suspension next season.

ESPN.com expects the Colts to exercise their option to void Richardson's contract, and the players' union to challenge that move.


Colts' Grigson confirms Richardson was suspended for last two games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Colts general manager Ryan Grigson confirmed Friday running back Trent Richardson was suspended the final two playoff games. Grigson wouldn't elaborate on why Richardson was suspended and didn't want to get into it because of personal reasons.

Richardson said last week he was not at the walkthrough practice Saturday before Sunday's AFC title game due to a family emergency.

"I had to miss walk-through," Richardson said, per ESPN. "I'm dealing with a very serious family emergency. I'm still at the hospital. I wouldn't purposely just miss walk-through. I wouldn't just purposely turn my back on the team."

According to WTHR's Bob Kravitz earlier this week, Richardson "didn't call" team officials to let them know he'd be absent Saturday.

Richardson, who was the No. 3 pick in the 2012 draft, has been a disappointment offensively since being acquired in a 2013 trade with the Browns. He has totaled just 977 rushing yards and averaged 3.1 yards per carry in 29 games with Indianapolis.


Report: Colts suspended RB Trent Richardson for AFC title game


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/20/2015) Colts running back Trent Richardson wasn't active for the AFC Championship Game after missing Saturday's walkthrough for what he called a family emergency. According to WTHR's Bob Kravitz, Richardson "didn't call" team officials to let them know he'd be absent.

NFL reporter Howard Balzer says the Colts suspended Richardson for the game. Regardless, it was the second straight game in which he was inactive.

Richardson is signed for 2015 at nearly $3.2 million, but his future with the team seems tenuous.

Colts' Richardson cites family situation for missing walk-through


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) Colts running back Trent Richardson was not at Saturday’s walk-through and will not play in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game due to a family emergency, reports ESPN.

"I had to miss walk-through," Richardson said. "I'm dealing with a very serious family emergency. I'm still at the hospital. I wouldn't purposely just miss walk-through."

Richardson said he would have been at Saturday’s walk-through had the family emergency not popped up.

"I wouldn't just purposely turn my back on the team," he said.


Colts' Trent Richardson doesn't travel with team, out for Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/17/2015) Colts running back Trent Richardson did not make the trip with the team to New England due to personal reasons and will not play in Sunday's AFC Championship game, the team announced Saturday. Richardson also missed the divisional round of the playoffs and received zero carries in the wild card round.

Richardson reportedly missed walkthroughs Saturday and did not notify the team for his reason, according to the Indianapolis Star.

Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton will continue to carry the load for the Colts Sunday. Indianapolis is currently a 6 1/2-point underdog against the Patriots.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

"That situation will never happen to me again," Richardson said. "Anybody can quote me, today, because it's never going to happen again."

Richardson clarified his remarks later in the report, saying that he's unsure whether he'll play against the Colts Sunday. "Whatever coach do, I'm going to agree with it, I'm going to be happy with it, because that's what's best for the team," Richardson said. "If he call me up and tell me I'm going to be playing, I'm going to be ready. If not, I'm going to be cheering my teammates on because it's their game."

The Colts traded a first-round pick for Richardson during the 2013 season. Indianapolis is a 6 1/2-point underdog against New England.


Trent Richardson inactive Sunday because he's not on special teams


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2015) Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Monday running back Trent Richardson was inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos because he is not a special teams player and has never asked to be one, according to Colts.com.

Backup running back Michael Hill plays on special teams, taking Richardson's spot. Richardson ran for 519 yards on 159 carries in 2014, averaging 3.3 yards per carry. New starting running back Dan Herron had 31 touches in Sunday's game, totaling 95 yards for the Colts.

Indianapolis is currently a 7-point underdog against the Patriots in New England.


Colts' Trent Richardson a surprise inactive for divisional playoff game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2015) The Colts made a surprising move Sunday by listing running back Trent Richardson as inactive for the team's divisional playoff game at Denver. Richardson was not on the team's injury report.

There was plenty of speculation heading into Sunday's game about Richardson's role on offense after he appeared for just one snap during a wild-card win over Bengals last week. Richardson had started 12 games at running back for Indianapolis during the regular season.

Zurlon Tipton and Michael Hill, who was signed Tuesday, will be the Colts' backup running backs behind Daniel Herron on Sunday.


Colts determining Trent Richardson's role for playoff game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2015) Colts running back Trent Richardson was demoted to third-string running back during Indianapolis' wild-card win against the Bengals. Richardson received no touches and played just a snap in the second half.

The Colts said Richardson was behind Daniel Herron and Zurlon Tipton on the depth chart last week because he missed some practice time due to an illness. However, his role heading into Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Broncos remains uncertain.

"We’re going to evaluate the situation as we go through the week and we’ll know more as we go through the week," coach Chuck Pagano said, per ESPN.

Richardson has been a disappointment in Indianapolis since his acquisition in September 2013 from the Browns. Although, general manager Ryan Grigson doesn't regret acquiring the former first-round pick.

"When we made that trade it was a great shot in the arm," Grigson said during the radio interview earlier in the week. "We lost our starter. I felt like it was the right football move at that time. I’ll never back off that thought. I thought it was a no-brainer."


Zurlon Tipton gets 12 touches, Trent Richardson not used


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/4/2015) Colts rookie running back Zurlon Tipton, playing behind Dan Herron, rushed 11 times for 40 yards (3.6 ypc) in Sunday's 26-10 victory over the Bengals. Tipton added a 6-yard reception on his only target.

This was Tipton's second straight game with double-digit touches, as he received 11 in Week 17 at Tennessee. Running back Trent Richardson was active for the game but did not touch the ball.

They'll visit the Broncos in the divisional playoffs.


RB Trent Richardson among Colts cleared for playoff game


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/4/2015) Colts running back Trent Richardson, who was questionable with an illness, is active for Sunday's playoff game against the Bengals. He'll continue to back up Dan Herron.

All the Colts who were probable on the injury report also are active. The list includes wideout Reggie Wayne (groin), tight end Dwayne Allen (knee), linebacker Jerrell Freeman (hamstring), guard Joe Reitz (ankle), linebacker Erik Walden (knee) and linebacker Bjoern Werner (shoulder).

Indy is a 3.5-point home favorite.


Colts' Trent Richardson deemed questionable for wild-card game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/2/2015) Colts running back Trent Richardson was unable to practice on Friday because of an illness. He was officially listed as questionable for Sunday's wild-card clash against the Bengals, according to the team's official website.

Richardson rushed for 519 yards and three touchdowns on 159 attempts, the most he's compiled since his rookie season with the Browns. If he is unable to play, the team will likely shift to Dan Herron and No. 3 back Zurlon Tipton to handle all running back duties.

The Colts opened as a 6-point home favorite. The line has dropped to 3 points as of Friday, per VegasInsider.com.


Dan Herron the clear No. 1 in Colts' backfield


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/28/2014) Colts running back Dan Herron ran 10 times for 35 yards and caught three passes for 31 yards Week 17 against the Titans, and he didn't play in the second half as starters rested. Trent Richardson rushed six times for 11 yards and had a 9-yard catch.

No. 3 running back Zurlon Tipton added 21 yards on nine carries and caught both his targets for 45 yards.

Look for Herron to keep dominating backfield snaps when Indy plays the Bengals or Steelers in the playoffs.


Colts RBs average 0.1 yards per carry in blowout loss


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/21/2014) Colts running backs Dan Herron and Trent Richardson were non-factors in the Week 16 loss at Dallas. Herron ran seven times for 3 yards, while Richardson rushed twice for 1 yard. Running back Zurlon Tipton  had one carry for minus-3 yards, leaving the team with an average of 0.1 yards per carry.

Herron did catch three of four targets for 37 yards, and Tipton caught all four of his targets for 23 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown. Richardson secured both his targets for 8 yards.

Look for Herron to lead the backfield Week 17 at Tennessee, and in the playoffs.


Dan Herron keys Colts rushing game with 60 yards vs. Texans


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Colts running back Dan Herron led his team with 60 rushing yards on 11 carries while adding two receptions and 12 yards through the air in his team's 17-10 win over the Texans in Week 15.

Herron split the touches pretty evenly with Trent Richardson but was far more effective, managing 72 yards on 13 touches compared to 41 yards on 11 touches for the former first-round pick. Richardson averaged just 3.6 yards on the ground while racking up 32 yards on nine carries and added another nine yards on two receptions.

Herron figures to lead the RB committee again in Week 16 against the Cowboys.


Colts backfield duo just OK in defeat of Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) The backfield pair of Trent Richardson and Dan Herron contributed little on the ground for the Colts on Sunday in Cleveland, though the latter did catch four passes for 45 yards.

Richardson returned to the field in which he played his home games as a rookie and managed 30 yards on seven carries. Herron added 26 yards on eight attempts.
