Texans signed RB Daryl Richardson to their practice squad.

Jets released RB Daryl Richardson.

Richardson opened 2013 as the starter in St. Louis, but cannot survive final cuts this time around. Only 24, Richardson should get some looks from running back needy teams. Richardson's release means Bilal Powell has made the roster.

Jets RB Daryl Richardson (toe) should be ready for training camp.

Richardson has been sitting out OTAs with a turf toe injury that plagued him throughout 2013. With a crowded depth chart ahead of him, Richardson will need a strong, healthy training camp to crack the Jets' final roster.
Sat, Jun 14, 2014 01:20:00 PM

Jets claimed RB Daryl Richardson off waivers from the Rams.

Richardson opened 2013 in a starting role with St. Louis, but appeared in only eight games while dealing with injuries. He averaged just 3.1 yards per carry when healthy last year after averaging 4.8 YPC as a rookie. Richardson should compete with Bilal Powell for a roster spot as a change-of-pace back.

Rams waived RB Daryl Richardson.

Someone was going to be the odd man out in St. Louis' crowded backfield after the Rams spent the No. 75 overall pick on Tre Mason, but it was expected to be Isaiah Pead, not Richardson. Playing through turf toe, Richardson was dreadful as a sophomore after opening the season as the Rams' de facto starter, managing only 215 yards on 69 carries (3.11 YPC). Just one year removed from a successful rookie campaign as a change-of-pace back, Richardson is unlikely to make it through waivers unclaimed.

Daryl Richardson battled turf toe the entire 2013 season and points to that as one of the main reasons he struggled as a second-year pro.

Richardson suffered the injury in the season opener. It affected his push-off and made planting and cutting difficult. Richardson averaged just 3.1 YPC as a sophomore and didn't even dress for the final eight games. GM Les Snead remains confident Richardson can return to a prominent offensive role, but for now the Rams want Richardson to stay off his feet and let the toe heal.
