Colts bench Trent Richardson, Donald Brown to start

Posted · Add Comment

The Indianapolis Colts have finally given up on running back Trent Richardson, benching him and replacing him with Donald Brown.

The Colts traded a first-round draft pick to the Cleveland Browns for Richardson, but he's been ineffective.

Richardson is averaging 2.9 yards per carry and has yet to rush for more than 60 yards since the trade.

Brown rushed for 80 yards and two touchdowns against the Tennessee Titans.
