Richardson (hip) is active Sunday against Miami.
Richardson was limited in practice each day this week, but hasn't missed a game all year and doesn't intend for that to start in Week 15. He'll presumably line up again as a starting defensive tackle alongside Linval Joseph
Richardson is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphin with a hip injury, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.
Richardson was a limited participant at practice this week to earn the questionable tag, but appears on track to play Sunday. Tom Johnson and Jaleel Johnson would see increased workloads at defensive tackle should Richardson be inactive Sunday.
Richardson had two sacks and seven total tackles in Sunday's win over Green Bay.
After six games without a sack, RIchardson has 2.5 sacks in his last three games. He's been getting consistent pressure on the quarterback with five QB hits and 17 QB hurries over his last nine games, according to Pro Football Focus, so he should be able to have more luck with sacks the final five games of the season.
Richardson recorded three tackles (one solo) and 0.5 sacks across 48 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Lions.
The Vikings set a franchise record with 10 sacks on the day. Richardson now has one sack on the season, which ties season totals from each of the past two seasons. The big run stuffer will now get a chance to rest up as the Vikings enter their bye week.
Richardson had six total tackles, 0.5 sacks and three QB hits in Sunday's win over the 49ers.
Richardson had an impressive debut with the Vikings as he provided a strong interior pass rush that included five QB hurries (according to Pro Football Focus). Opposing offensive lines are going to have a hard time combating Richardson with a need to also account for Minnesota's strong perimeter pass rushers.
