No more excuses for Trent Richardson
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Colts are ready to see the best of running back Trent Richardson, reports ESPN.

The report says there are no more excuses about not knowing the playbook or getting familiar with the team. He has had an entire offseason to learn everything, and now he can use his natural instincts when he's on the field, instead of constantly trying to remember the plays.

Richardson, the No. 3 overall pick in 2012, had offseason shoulder surgery and will head into training camp as the starter, with Ahmad Bradshaw ready to take some snaps from him if he struggles.

Trent Richardson might not get long leash
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Averaging 2.9 yards a carry, like he did last year, will get Trent Richardson benched quickly, reports ESPN.com. Richardson "will have to produce right away because it's unlikely the Colts will wait for him to get going" if running backs Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard are healthy and productive, the website said.

Richardson likely will get the first shot at the starting job. He has a much better grasp of the playbook than he did in 2013 and the belief is he'll be able to run on instinct as opposed to overthinking, the report said.

Trent Richardson could be three-down back this year
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Colts running back Trent Richardson "is relying more on his instincts when running instead of thinking it through" and could emerge as a three-down back, reports ESPN. Richardson has a much better handle on the playbook than he did last year following his early-season trade from the Browns.

Behind Richardson on the depth chart are Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard, both coming off big surgeries. Richardson had a dismal 2013, averaging 3.0 yards per carry and scoring four touchdowns, but will get every chance to succeed in 2014.

Trent Richardson calls practicing 'way easier now'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Colts running back Trent Richardson continues to make strides in his progress of getting the offense down pat, a problem he had last season after he was traded to Indy from Cleveland. The official team website reports Richardson is feeling more comfortable

"I feel way more fluid, even with the timing," said Richardson on Wednesday. "I didn't know the snap count last year until the fourth week. ... I didn't have the chance to learn 'Why are we doing this? What am I looking at this linebacker, or that linebacker on the backside?' I just had to know where I was running. I didn't know the full reasons. With the timing, it's way easier now. ... I needed this from the beginning."

Teammate Matt Hasselbeck, who saw Marshawn Lynch struggle to adapt to the Seahawks during a midseason trade years ago, said he "would definitely expect his numbers to look better this year."

Trent Richardson had shoulder surgery, limited at OTAs
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Colts running back Trent Richardson wore a red jersey during the team's OTA practice on Thursday, a precaution after having shoulder surgery this offseason. Richardson also said he weighed as much as 230 pounds last offseason and gained even more before dropping 15 pounds to get to 225 pounds. He worked with the first-team offense in practice. 

"I'm feeling pretty good, it's just up to the coach on whenever I should take the jersey off," Richardson said per ESPN.
