Trent Richardson enjoys best game as a Colt
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Colts running back Trent Richardson failed to surpass 64 rushing yards in any game last season. He ran for 79 yards on 21 carries (3.8 ypc) in Monday's loss to the Eagles, adding a 16-yard catch on his lone target.

Richardson got off to a great start and had 57 rushing yards in the first half. He displayed better burst and was hard to bring down. Predictably, Richardson bogged down after halftime, even coughing up a third-quarter fumble.

Still, Richardson will look to build off this performance Week 3 at Jacksonville.

Trent Richardson, Ahmad Bradshaw get nearly even split
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Colts used running backs Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw almost evenly in their Week 1 loss at Denver. Richardson got nine touches to Bradshaw's eight.

Richardson started and ran six times for 20 yards (3.3 ypc). He was solid as a receiver, catching three of four targets for 31 yards.

Bradshaw was spectacular as a receiver and dominated snaps in the two-minute offense. He caught five of six targets for 70 yards, breaking multiple tackles in the open field. Bradshaw carried three times for 15 yards (5.0 ypc).

Look for Indy to rotate both backs again Week 2 against the Eagles.

Trent Richardson a dull flex option
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

We know Colts running back Trent Richardson has talent -- we just haven't seen it in a while. After averaging 2.9 yards per carry last season following his trade from Cleveland, Richardson actually fared worse this preseason, gaining 51 yards on 20 totes (2.6 ypc).

Ahmad Bradshaw will eat into Richardson's touches and could supplant him if he keeps struggling. Coming off a neck injury, Bradshaw got his feet wet in the third preseason game, rushing three times for 2 yards and catching an 11-yard pass.

The Colts' offensive line is suspect. Indy bolstered its receiving corps and will rely more on Andrew Luck's passing this year. It's hard to envision a sudden Richardson revival.

If you start Richardson as your flex Sunday night at Denver, the best-case scenario is about 75 total yards and a short rushing score (he managed three rushing TDs last year). Not the most exciting way to start a Fantasy season.

Dan Herron has been Colts' best running back
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Trent Richardson is averaging 2.6 yards per carry in the preseason, and Ahmad Bradshaw made his preseason debut Saturday with three carries for 2 yards. Would the Colts turn to Dan Herron?

Herron has run for 104 yards on 18 preseason carries (5.7 ypc), including a 43-yard jaunt Saturday against the Saints. Most of those yards have come against backups, but coach Chuck Pagano said he's not discounting Herron.

"I don't look at it that way," Pagano told ESPN.com. "I just know 'Boom' has had a really good camp and a good preseason. He's made some nice runs. It's comforting knowing that you have a guy that not only excels on special teams, but you've got another guy in the backfield that can run and get yards for you when you need them."

A third-year back out of Ohio State, Herron entered camp as a long shot to make the roster. Now he's third on the depth chart and rising fast. "It's a great opportunity right now for me," said Herron, who also returns kickoffs. "I come here every day like it's my first day and the coaches know nothing about me. I try to work as hard as I can and just try to showcase what I can."

Trent Richardson under the gun
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

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 ESPN.com. "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.
