Daryl Richardson: Waived by Jacksonville
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson was waived by Jacksonville on Monday, the team's official site reports.

Richardson has bounced around plenty during his small NFL tenure so he could find a new home relatively soon depending on fit. His best season came back in 2012 when he rushed for 475 yards for the Rams.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jaguars claimed Richardson of waivers Monday.

Released by the Steelers in advance of Sunday's game against the Ravens, Richardson was subject to the NFL's claiming process. With the Jaguars, he could make an impact in a backfield dealing with multiple injuries, including T.J. Yeldon, who was placed on IR on Monday due to an ankle injury.

Daryl Richardson: Released by Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson has been released by the Steelers.

Richardson has been inactive of late and with the return to health of fellow RB DeAngelo Williams, he's the odd man out heading into Week 16's action.

Steelers' Daryl Richardson: Signed to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson was signed to the Steelers' active roster Saturday, reports.

Daryl Richardson: Promotion to active roster possible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson could be promoted from the Steelers' practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Richardson has been stationed on Pittsburgh's practice squad since being released from the active roster following the team's Week 3 loss to the Eagles. After spending training camp with the Steelers as well, Richardson is seemingly more familiar with the offensive playbook than fellow practice squad member Karlos Williams, but it remains to be seen which player, if either, will be promoted to compensate for tailback DeAngelo Williams' (knee) absence going forward.

Daryl Richardson: Released by Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson was released by the Steelers on Thursday, Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Richardson was released to clear a roster spot for Le'Veon Bell, who returned from a three-game suspension. Richardson will be eligible for the practice squad if he clears waivers. He had two carries for a total of seven yards in three games with the Steelers.

Steelers' Daryl Richardson: One carry in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson had one carry for one yard in Pittsburgh's 34-3 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

After attempting five rushes on their opening drive, the Steelers' fell behind and were playing catch-up all game. As a result, they only ran five more times the remainder of the game. With Le'Veon Bell (suspension) due to return in Week 4 against Kansas City, Richardson's role will be reduced even further.

Steelers' Daryl Richardson: First NFL carry is three years
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson had one carry for six yards in Pittsburgh's 24-16 win over Cincinnati Sunday.

This was the first rushing attempt in an NFL game by Richardson, who has spent the better part of his career on the practice squad for several teams, since 2013. It may not be another three years before he gets another carry, but there is no reason for him to be on anyone's fantasy radar.

Steelers' Daryl Richardson: Works ahead of Toussaint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson gained 20 yards on nine carries and four yards on one catch (one target) in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

After Le'Veon Bell (suspension) and DeAngelo Williams played the first half, Richardson handled the third quarter and then split work with Fitzgerald Toussaint in the fourth quarter. No clear winner emerged in the battle for the No. 3 running back spot, as Toussaint was also ineffective on the ground, gaining eight yards on six carries and 18 yards on two receptions (two targets). With Bell suspended for the first three games, the Steelers may keep both Toussaint and Richardson on the final roster, extending the audition period through Week 3.

Steelers' Daryl Richardson: Uninspired performance Thursday against Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson totaled 15 yards on 10 carries, and caught one pass for six yards in Pittsburgh's 17-0 loss to Philadelphia.

This was a definite step backwards for Richardson, who looked much better in the preseason opener against Detroit. Then again, the entire Steeler offense failed to show up, managing just 207 total yards. Fortunately for Richardson, his competition for Pittsburgh's third running back spot on the roster, Fitzgerald Tousaint, looked only slightly better, rushing for 26 yards on eight carrries. Both will get another opportunity to show why they deserve to be behind Le'Veon Bell (suspension) and DeAngelo Williams on the depth chart when they face New Orleans on Friday.

Steelers' Daryl Richardson: Tallies game-high 44 yards rushing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson gained 44 yards on 11 carries and added 16 yards on two catches in Friday's 30-17 preseason loss to the Lions.

The 26-year-old tailback built on his impressive training camp performances, with his 44 yards leading all rushers on the night. Richardson has not received a regular-season carry since 2013, his second and final season with the Rams. He's competing with Fitzgerald Touissant for a third-string role behind DeAngelo Williams, with Friday's effort serving as a positive step towards winning that job.

Steelers' Daryl Richardson: Looking to stick with Steelers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson has looked good in training camp thus far, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Per the Post-Observer, Richardson "looked fast" during the Steelers' offseason workouts, with the 26-year-old back, who did not record a regular season carry in 2015, making a run at the team's No. 3 running back job. His main competition for the assignment is Fitzgerald Toussaint, with the player who lands the gig of note, given that Pittsburgh's top back Le'Veon Bell reportedly faces a four-game suspension to start the season.

Steelers' Daryl Richardson: sSgns deal with for 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson has signed a reserve/future contract with the Steelers.

Richardson thus joins the team's backup RB depth corps behind Le'Veon Bell, with DeAngelo Williams and Fitzgerald Toussaint also under contract with the team for the 2016 season.

Browns' Daryl Richardson: Released on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson was released by the Browns on Tuesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

Richardson spent a couple of weeks with the team to help with depth, but he still hasn't appeared in a regular season game since 2013. A former seventh-round draft pick, he shouldn't have much trouble finding a team that will let him compete for a back-end roster spot in training camp next season.

December 15, 2015 04:00 PM
Daryl Richardson: Signed by Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson signed with the Browns on Tuesday.

A seventh-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, Richardson hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since the end of 2013. With Glenn Winston (concussion) looking shaky for Week 15, Richardson could serve as the No. 3 running back behind Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson. It's not a role that would necessarily include any offensive snaps or touches.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson was released from Houston's practice squad, the Houston Chronicle reports.
