The Indianapolis Colts are reportedly growing tired of running back Trent Richardson’s underachieving.
Indianapolis Colts running back Trent Richardson has been a bust since joining the Colts, to say the least. The Colts traded a first-round pick to the Cleveland Browns in hopes of getting a sufficient running game for quarterback Andrew Luck.

Richardson was benched in favor of Dan Herron, an undrafted rookie, during the 2014 season even after Ahmad Bradshaw had a season-ending knee injury.
It has since been reported that the running back has had difficulty with his weight and been nearly impossible to get in contact with. His weight reportedly went up to 240 pounds.
He was suspended for two games for missing a team walk-through without notifying the coaching staff of a family emergency beforehand. His first game of his suspension was served in the AFC Championship.
The Colts may choose to release him, which would enable them to void his $3.1 million in guaranteed money.
Richardson has taken quite the fall from grace after the Browns traded up to select him with the third overall pick in the 2012 draft, and he had rushed for 950 yards and 11 touchdowns in his rookie season.
