Richardson finished without a catch on four targets in Sunday's 17-16 win over Miami.
Richardson dropped down to 59 percent of snaps on offense, after playing at least 80 percent each of the previous five weeks. Interim head coach Bill Callahan allotted more snaps to the tight ends, despite playing Sunday's game without Jordan Reed (concussion) and Vernon Davis (concussion). A Week 7 rebound doesn't appear too likely, as Washington will host the 49ers and their elite defense.
Richardson caught both of his targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 33-7 loss to New England.
Richardson played 86 percent of snaps on offense, putting him at 80 percent or higher for a fifth time in as many games. The playing time hasn't translated to production apart from Week 3 (8-83-1), with the 27-year-old wideout otherwise finishing every game with four or fewer catches and no more than 36 yards. A coaching change from Jay Gruden to Bill Callahan isn't likely to help, as Callahan may try to emphasize the running game.
Richardson caught three of five targets for 14 yards during Sunday's 24-3 loss to the Giants.
Richardson stood to play a major role in the absence of Terry McLaurin, but he didn't record a catch longer than six yards as he finished with a disappointing line. Of course, the early removal of Case Keenum didn't help matters, as rookie Dwayne Haskins struggled mightily in his first taste of game action. Although Richardson has been useful at times this season, his fantasy value could take a hit depending on which direction the team goes at quarterback for next Sunday's home matchup with the Patriots.
Richardson caught eight of nine targets for 83 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 31-15 loss to the Bears.
Richardson led the Redskins in all major receiving categories, providing a bright spot in an otherwise bleak offensive performance. The veteran brought Washington within two scores with a two-yard touchdown grab to start the fourth quarter, giving him a trip to the end zone in back-to-back weeks. Although rookie Terry McLaurin has been the main standout among the team's receivers, Richardson sports some decent momentum ahead of Week 4's game at the Giants.
Richardson caught each of his three targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-21 loss to Dallas.
Despite playing 87 percent of snaps on offense, Richardson finished fifth on the team in targets, behind Terry McLaurin (nine), Chris Thompson (eight), Trey Quinn (seven) and Vernon Davis (four). A nine-yard touchdown saved his day, but Richardson's target share (12.3 percent) through two games hints at some lean weeks ahead. Washington hosts Chicago on Monday Night Football in Week 3.
Richardson caught four of seven targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 32-27 loss to the Eagles.
With tight end Jordan Reed (concussion) unavailable, Washington opened the game in a three-wide formation and rarely deviated from that plan. Richardson actually logged fewer snaps (78 percent) than fellow starters Trey Quinn (97 percent) and Terry McLaurin (93 percent), but each player drew either six or seven targets in a game that saw Case Keenum attempt 44 passes. Richardson had the quietest day of the bunch, with Quinn going for 4-33-1 and McLaurin exploding for 5-125-1. While his top-three role appears secure, Richardson is less interesting than his younger teammates for fantasy purposes, heading into a Week 2 matchup with Dallas.
Coach Jay Gruden said Thursday that he was "very encouraged" by how Richardson (quadriceps) ran in Washington's practice session, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Richardson cleared up any concern about his availability for the Week 1 matchup with the Eagles by turning in a full practice Wednesday, but Gruden's comments offer further evidence that the wideout is feeling healthy again. The 27-year-old's first season in Washington went down as an injury-plagued disappointment, with a problematic right clavicle limiting him to seven appearances before he was shut down for good after undergoing surgery. Assuming he can stay on the field in 2019, Richardson should serve as Washington's top downfield threat out wide, though it's possible he takes on more slot work as well with Jamison Crowder now plying his trade with the Jets.
Richardson (quadriceps) got the start and played nine snaps in Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons.
Richardson made a brief, target-free appearance, but the important thing is that he was healthy enough to play despite coach Jay Gruden suggesting otherwise earlier this week. The speedy wideout now appears locked in as a starter for Washington's regular-season opener in Philadelphia. The team likely will put Case Keenum under center for that contest, though no decision had been announced as of Friday afternoon.
Coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday that Richardson (quadriceps) will "probably not" suit up for Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Richardson is nursing a quadriceps injury. He managed to participate in individual drills Monday, but it appears that Washington will take a cautious approach to his recovery and hold the veteran wideout out of Thursday's exhibition match. When fully healthy, Richardson is expected to serve as the team's top deep threat.
Richardson (quadriceps) expects to suit up for Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Richardson managed to participate in individual drills Monday after having missed multiple practices. The veteran wideout's quad injury appears to be minor, and if he's able to suit up Thursday, it would put to rest any concerns regarding his availability for Week 1. Richardson also appears fully recovered from his major offseason shoulder surgery.
Richardson (quad) went through individual drills Monday at practice, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Even if his participation was limited, Richardson's ability to practice in any capacity would seem to confirm that his quad injury is minor. He's expected to start at outside receiver and serve as Washington's top deep threat, but efficiency appears problematic with Case Keenum, Dwayne Haskins or Colt McCoy (leg/foot) at quarterback. It isn't clear if Richardson will be ready for Thursday's preseason game in Atlanta.
Richardson is dealing with a minor quadriceps injury, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington reports.
Richardson returned from major shoulder surgery for the start of training camp and seems to have stayed healthy up to this point. With Richardson and Trey Quinn (thumb) both likely to miss Thursday's preseason game against Cincinnati, there's a nice opportunity for Terry McLaurin, Cam Sims, Kelvin Harmon and/or Darvin Kidsy to get some run with the first-team offense.
Richardson (shoulder) participated in the first practice of training camp, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports.
Richardson was limited throughout the offseason program after having shoulder surgery in early November. He's entering the second season of a five-year, $40 million contract and doesn't appear to have much competition for playing time in a Washington offense with shaky wideout talent.
Richardson (shoulder) is on track for training camp, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
A limited participant throughout the offseason program, Richardson ramped up his activity level to include team drills at June minicamp. He's the closest thing Washington has to a No. 1 receiver, entering the second season of a five-year, $40 million contract. Richardson may be eased into contact work this summer, as his shoulder surgery in early November came with an estimated recovery timeline of 6-to-8 months.
Richardson (shoulder) participated in team drills during Wednesday's practice, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.
Mostly a spectator in his return to practice Tuesday, Richardson was reportedly much more active Wednesday. Since his recovery from shoulder surgery was expected to drag on through the end of spring workouts, Richardson's mere availability would have been a significant development for the Redskins, let alone his active involvement in team drills. The 2014 second-round pick is primed to open training camp as Washington's No. 1 receiver, and he could be fully cleared at that point.
Richardson (shoulder) participated in mandatory minicamp Tuesday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Richardson, who hadn't participated in any spring practices prior to Tuesday, was not expected to be back on the field before training camp after undergoing a shoulder procedure back in November. Given the length of his absence, Richardson will likely be eased back into practice, but it's a good sign that he should be nearing full health by the time training camp rolls around.
Richardson (shoulder) isn't expected to practice until training camp, Kareem Copeland and Les Carpenter of The Washington Post report.
Richardson had a plate inserted in his right shoulder in early November to address multiple fractures of the clavicle. An estimated recovery timeline of 6-to-8 months always made him a shaky bet to log any level of participation in spring practices, but he is in attendance as an observer. Richardson was limited to seven games and 262 receiving yards in the first season of a five-year, $40 million contract, battling shoulder injuries throughout training camp and into the regular season. He should still have a starting job once he gets healthy, as Washington's depth chart at wide receiver is one of the weakest in the NFL.
Richardson clarified that his season-ending injury in 2018 included multiple fractures to the clavicle in his right shoulder, which required the insertion of a plate during surgery in early November, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the Redskins' official site reports.
Richardson initially picked up the injury in the early stages of training camp, and it grew worse as the campaign wore on, limiting him in practice, resulting in an absence Week 7 and eventually forcing him to IR and under the knife. Overall, his production fell short of the investment made in him by the Redskins last March -- five years, $40 million -- as he hauled in 20 of his 35 targets for 262 yards and two touchdowns in seven games. With a recovery timeline of 6-to-8 months, he may be able to join his teammates on the field during OTAs and mandatory minicamp in May and/or June. In the end, though, training camp is more realistic for an appearance. Whenever he's cleared, Richardson will be among newcomer Case Keenum's top options in the passing attack alongside Josh Doctson, Jordan Reed, Chris Thompson, Vernon Davis and Trey Quinn.
Richardson (shoulder) is one of the leaders of a Washington wideout group that lost Jamison Crowder to the Jets and Maurice Harris to the Patriots in the opening days of free agency, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
The Redskins haven't signed any replacements, but they still have time to do some discount shopping and likely will look at wide receivers early in the upcoming draft. With Colt McCoy and Case Keenum set to compete for the starting job, there's also a good argument for using one of those early picks on a quarterback. Richardson is more than five months removed from season-ending shoulder surgery, with the estimated timeline (6-to-8 months) putting him on track to be ready for the start of training camp. The team context in Washington may not be ideal for piling up yards and touchdowns, but it at least sets up Richardson as a locked-in starter for the second season of a five-year, $40 million contract. The rest of the team's wideout depth chart is a mixture of washed up (Brian Quick), disappointing (Josh Doctson, Jehu Chesson) and unproven (Trey Quinn, Cam Sims, Robert Davis, Darvin Kidsy, Tre McBride). Richardson is the only one with a recent track record as a competent starter.
The Redskins placed Richardson (shoulder) on injured reserve Monday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Richardson emerged from his Redskins debut Week 1 with an AC joint sprain in one of his shoulders, making regular appearances on the injury report thereafter. While he missed one game along the way, he otherwise gutted out the issue week after week in a receiving corps beset by a number of injuries. In his seven appearances, Richardson reeled in 20 of 35 passes for 262 yards and two touchdowns. With Jamison Crowder still tending to an ankle injury, Washington's top healthy wide receivers are Maurice Harris and Josh Doctson.
