Richardson had 44 tackles (27 solo), a sack, a forced fumble and an interception in 15 games with the Seahawks in 2017. Richardson was traded from the Jets to the Seahawks prior to Week 1 and accrued a career-low sack total in the final year of his rookie contract. The 27-year-old will enter free agency in 2018 and is likely to be one of the most attractive options on the market at defensive tackle.
Richardson registered six tackles (four solo) and a sack in Monday's loss to the Falcons. It was one of Richardson's best performances on the year as he registered a season high in tackles and added his first sack of the year. Through nine games this season he has 23 tackles (14 solo), one sack, one interception and one pass defensed.
The Seahawks have listed Richardson (oblique) as active for Thursday's clash against the Cardinals. Richardson was on the injury report last week before ultimately being ruled out prior to Sunday's loss to the Redskins. Given the short week, it looks like the Seahawks were just giving him some extra time to recover. Barring any setbacks, look for him to take on his usual workload at defensive tackle.
Richardson (oblique) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Richardson will miss his first game of the season, and it's unclear what his timeline for return is. However, the Seahawks face a quick turnaround with a Thursday night game approaching, so that adds extra pressure to Richardson's recovery. In his place, rookie Nazair Jones will make his first career start Sunday.
Richardson, who is dealing with an oblique injury, practiced fully Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Friday's practice session must not have been too strenuous, as despite Richardson's full participation, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said the defensive tackle's status would come down to a game-time decision, according to Liz Matthews of USA Today. If Richardson checks out fine in pregame warmups, however, he should be cleared to take on his usual load of snaps.
