Trent Richardson went through his first practice Thursday as an Indianapolis Colt, and Coach Chuck Pagano said he will play Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.

"We did not bring him in here to be the water boy," Pagano told reporters in Indianapolis on Thursday. "He'll be ready to go, as much as he can handle."

Richardson, the third overall pick by the Cleveland Browns last yaer, was acquired by the Colts on Wednesday in exchange for a 2014 first-round pick.
