Trent Richardson under the gun
by Larry Hartstein |

The Colts are focused on getting their rushing game going heading into Saturday's third preseason game against the Saints. Specifically, they want to see more production from Trent Richardson, who's averaged 2.4 yards per carry through two games.

"Trent, he needs to answer the bell and do his job to the best of his ability," general manager Ryan Grigson told "We're all accountable here. I will say this, there are a lot of backs last year that wouldn't have got [2.4 ypc] considering the amount of people he had in that box and the amount of bodies that were hitting him before he even seemed to get the ball sometimes.

"He's such a hard runner, we know how tough he is, but he's got to produce just like all these guys do on the final 53."

Richardson averaged 2.9 yards per carry last season with Indy. If he continues to flounder, the Colts could turn to Ahmad Bradshaw, who's coming back from a neck injury and scheduled to make his preseason debut Saturday.

by Larry Hartstein |

Richardson averaged 2.9 yards per carry last season. He gave way Thursday to Dan Herron, who served as the No. 2 back with Ahmad Bradshaw sitting out.

Trent Richardson eyes 1,000-plus rushing yards
by Michael Hurcomb |

Colts running back Trent Richardson has lined up his goals for the 2014 season and among them is surpassing 1,000 rushing yards, according to The Indianapolis Star.

"A thousand is not the goal. For me, it's personal. I'm going to keep it to myself. But a thousand is not it for me. It's higher," Richardson said.

Richardson averaged just 2.9 yards per carry and finished with 458 rushing yards in 14 games with the Colts following his trade from Cleveland.

"Go back and look at last year," he said. "People say our running game wasn't successful, but there were times where (defenses) were stacking nine men in the box. If you look at it like that, they respected our running game."

Richardson is counting on better production in 2014 because he believes the passing game will help open up the running lanes.

"You have Reggie (Wayne) back, you've got T.Y. (Hilton), you have Hakeem (Nicks) out there," Richardson said. "You have Da'Rick (Rogers) out there. You have guys who are fast and quick and are moving around. That opens up a lot."

It's a start: Trent Richardson has good week of practice
by Larry Hartstein |

The Colts held out running back Trent Richardson early in camp due to a slight hamstring injury. The wait paid off as Richardson "had an impressive week of practice" last week, reports

"He’s getting back to 100 percent, so I think some of those runs you’re starting to see, the hard work, the full offseason, the comfort with the scheme, the terminology, being around the offensive guys, the guys that are lined up in front of him blocking and seeing him starting to put a foot in the ground, see a hole, burst through the line of scrimmage, all that stuff is coming," coach Chuck Pagano said. "It’s only going to get better, too, as he gets closer to 100 percent, health-wise. Again, he’s on track, he’s on track."

Richardson is obviously more comfortable in Indy's system, the report said. "He’s gone from thinking too much after taking the handoff to running off his natural instincts and with explosion."

The website says Richardson is "definitely" on his way to a better year after averaging 2.9 yards per carry last season.

"The comfort level is so much better now," Richardson said. "I know the plays and I’m not playing so tight. I’m really comfortable with the offense, and the timing with the offensive line is coming. I know all my cuts and reads before snap."
