Wayne: Trent Richardson felt 'forced' into offense
Wednesday, December 4, 2013, 11:29pm
"He came to me, he wasn't pouting or anything. This was the next day after he found out he was demoted and he said, 'Now I can sit back and actually watch the way it's supposed to be done.' He kind of feels that he was maybe forced into it early without actually learning it."
Whatever the reason for Richardson's struggles, he's playing behind Donald Brown now. Brown should be a solid RB2-type the rest of the way. He is the #21 RB since Week 9.

Colts RB Donald Brown played 49 offensive snaps out of 65 on Sunday and finished the game with 54 rushing yards on 14 carries (3.9 yards per carry). Richardson played 13 snaps and had 5 five carries for 19 yards (3.8 yards per carry).
“[He] earned the opportunity,” Pagano said of the new starters. “Donnie (Donald Brown) earned the opportunity the way he was working and running the football. Felt like, we’re still going to use two backs, but earned the opportunity to get in there and do that."

Colts don't plan to change RB committee approach
Saturday, November 23, 2013, 10:48am
"We don't plan on changing our rotation with our backs," offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton said. "We've always been a running back by committee bunch, so we're going to continue to do that."
The Colts want to get TRich going but at the same time realize Brown has been playing well when getting his chances. Unfortunately for owners of both players, it doesn't get easier this week as the Cards rank second in allowing fantasy points to RBs. We have Brown as a low-end RB3 play while TRich is even below that and is more of a RB4 play.
