Raiders' Jalen Richard: Logs nine touches in preseason debut
Richard rushed for 13 yards on five carries to go along with four receptions on as many targets for 35 yards in Friday's preseason win over the Lions.
Richard was unproductive as a ball carrier, averaging just 2.6 yards per rush with a long run of five yards. However, he made up for it in the passing game as a viable receiver out of the backfield. Fellow backup running backs Chris Warren and DeAndre Washington combined for 124 rushing yards on just 19 carries, which somewhat hurts Richard's positioning in the battle for a roster spot behind starter Marshawn Lynch. However, he still has a trio of preseason games during which he can make an impression.
