Richard carried seven times for 23 yards and didn't see a target in the passing game during Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Richard has put up disappointing performances in back-to-back weeks no with averages of 0.7 and 3.3 yards per carry against the Texans and Panthers. Fellow rookie running back DeAndre Washington was inactive due to what appeared to be a coaching decision after decreased involvement in the offense in recent weeks, so it was a bit disappointing that Richard wasn't able to take advantage with an opportunity to produce in Week 12 behind Latavius Murray. Richard will look to get back on track next week against the Bills, who don't have a stellar run defense up to this point.
