News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 24): Even with Ahmad Bradshaw sidelined for the season, Richardson looked like the lesser back in the Colts backfield. The good news is that he still got the score, Boom Herron had ball security issues in enemy territory, and Richardson was apparently sick. If he gets the start against Washington, that will match up with the Colts story, but it might not make Richardson look better than Herron.

2014 Week 11 vs NE (7 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 21 / 0 rec)
It was a decidedly Richardson-esque game as the former first-round pick gained zero yards on the ground and routinely looked too slow in his attempt to get to the edge. Richardson did have a nice 21-yard catch, but wasn't a big part of the Colts' passing offense. That role may increase in coming weeks, however, as Bradshaw left the game with what would be a fractured ankle. He may miss the rest of the season, making Richardson a prime candidate for an increase in both receptions, carries and (most importantly) red zone opportunities.
2014 Week 12 vs JAX (13 / 42 / 1 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Richardson's apparent benching on Sunday surprised media, as Dan Herron got the start. But Richardson said after the game that the starting lineup only flipped because he was still feeling under the weather before kickoff. Richardson ended up outsnapping Herron, and while Richardson's woes running the ball continued, he did find the end zone in the second half for his second touchdown of the year. That's where his value could increase with Bradshaw's continued absence: red zone opportunities.

Our View: The team needs him now more than ever after losing Ahmad Bradshaw (leg) for the rest of the season. We should see Richardson resume practicing fully either Thursday or Friday.
link to story Colts | Pagano has confidence in Dan Herron (Mon Nov 17, 05:50 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron is expected to take on a much larger role in the offense with the season-ending injury to RB Ahmad Bradshaw (leg). 'Now Boom (Daniel Herron) will have an opportunity. We've seen glimpses of Boom in the preseason and at other times. We know he's more than capable. I know Boom will prepare. He always prepares as a starter. I think he'll do fine, and he'll take advantage of this opportunity,' Pagano said. Our View: Trent Richardson will be the starter, but Pagano refused to say if he would be the third-down back as well. Herron is a tough player to bring down when he builds a head of steam. He'll work in a RBBC with Richardson.
