Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 14 vs CLE (7 / 30 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

The Colts may be parroting Richardson's starting status, but the back was starting in name only on Sunday. Dan Herron received 49 snaps to Richardson's 33, as well as more carries, targets and all-purpose yards. Richardson wasn't in the game on the Colts' final, game-winning drive, and his last carry came late in the third quarter. While his average was over four yards per carry for the first time since the Colts' win over the Giants a month ago, Richardson had his sixth game of the season with less than 40 rushing yards.

2014 Week 15 vs HOU (9 / 32 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 9 / 0 rec)

It was a pretty average day for Richardson, who finished with just 11 touches for 41 total yards. He was out-touched by Dan Herron again, but played more total snaps. Richardson started again, but once again it was Herron getting the bulk of the work on the Colts' final drive. Even on a day where Richardson averaged 3.6 yards per carry, higher than his season average, he left yards on the field, ignoring open lanes and forcing zero missed tackles.

2014 Week 16 vs DAL (2 / 1 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)

Richardson was on a limited snap count on Sunday, playing just 18 total snaps. It's unclear whether it was because of the Colts' lack of care for the game or because they were intentionally playing Dan Herron more. Early in the game, however, Richardson was limited to a third-down and passing situation role, perhaps a sign that the Colts coaching staff has reached their limit with his disappointment.
