There aren’t many running backs in the past decade that have been as big of a bust through two years as Indianapolis Colts back Trent Richardson. Not only has he hurt his team on the field, but fantasy football owners who took him in the first round in a lot of leagues are really hurting as the playoffs are nearing, and some have even started dropping him off of their roster.
The Colts aren’t ready to cut him just yet, but it does appear they’re giving-up on him as their feature back for now:

So @MikeSilver reports Trent Richardson is being benched for Donald Brown in Indy. Don’t expect too many people in Cleveland to be stunned.
