After acquiring Richardson from the Cleveland Browns earlier this year, the Colts thought they had found their franchise, feature-back that they so desperately needed. But through six games, Richardson has looked like a shell of his former self, not surpassing 60 yards on the ground in any of his contests.
Offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton has already reiterated that he wanted to get Richardson more involved in the Colts’ offense after their bye week, but that didn’t happen and now Hamilton has made similar suggestions, this time saying he wants to get Richardson better run schemes:
“I just have to find ways to creatively get the ball to Trent,” offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said. “A lot of different ways, not just out in space, but do a better job with run schemes that feature his instincts. But he’s gotten better each week, and we expect that he’ll continue to make big plays for us.”
Richardson is averaging 3.1 yards per carry this season.
