Texans signed RB Daryl Richardson to their practice squad.

Richardson hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since midway through the 2013 season with the Rams. He spent 2014 on the Jets' practice squad. Nobody in the Texans' backfield is performing. Richardson is another body.

Sep 5 - 2:55 PM

Jets RB Daryl Richardson suffered a concussion in the team's second preseason game Friday night.

Aug 22 - 8:21 AM

Jets signed RB Daryl Richardson, CB Dashaun Phillips, OL Brent Qvale, P Jake Schum, LB Chris Young, K Andrew Furney, LB Mario Harvey and CB Keith Lewis to reserve/future deals.

A 2012 seventh-rounder, Richardson carried the ball 167 times for the Rams between 2012-13, but couldn't get on the field in 2014. He'll fight for one of the Jets' final roster spots in training camp.

Jets signed RB Daryl Richardson to their practice squad.

He'll function as New York's No. 4 tailback for now, behind Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory, and Bilal Powell. Richardson opened last season as the Rams' starter, but struggled mightily before suffering a debilitating toe injury.

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.

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.

Daryl Richardson (thigh) is listed as doubtful for Week 17.

After averaging 4.8 YPC as a rookie in 2012, Richardson's disappointing sophomore year ends with a 3.1 clip and a lost starting job to Zac Stacy. Richardson may have a place in St. Louis' long-term plans, but only as a perimeter-oriented change-of-pace back. His value in Dynasty fantasy leagues is minimal.

Daryl Richardson (thigh) did not practice Wednesday.

Richardson hasn't appeared in a game since Week 8 due to injuries and poor performance. With just two games remaining, he's a candidate to be shut down for the season.

Daryl Richardson hasn't appeared in a game since Week 8.

Richardson is listed as questionable for Week 15 with a thigh injury. He's been scratched weekly due to injuries and poor performance. D-Rich's YPC has dropped to 3.1 among 69 rushing attempts after averaging 4.8 YPC in 2012.
