Time for Trent Richardson to step up

The Indianapolis Colts need running back Trent Richardson to step up.

He's rushed for just 32 yards on 14 carries. He's averaging 2.4 yards per carry.

Traded for last year, the former No. 3 overall pick of the draft needs to produde with Vick Ballard out.

“Trent, he needs to answer the bell and do his job to the best of his ability,” Colts general manager Ryan Grigson said. “We’re all accountable here. I will say this, there are a lot of backs last year that wouldn’t have got [2.9 yards per carry] considering the amount of people he had in that box and the amount of bodies that were hitting him before he even seemed to get the ball sometimes. He’s such a hard runner, we know how tough he is, but he’s got to produce just like all these guys do on this final 53.”
