Trent Richardson future uncertain with Colts

Indianapolis Colts general manager Ryan Grigson was noncommittal on having unproductive running back Trent Richardson back next season.

Richardson was suspended for two games for missing a walktrhough before the AFC title game. He was a healthy scratch for a divisional round game, too.

"Where's he fit? Where's he going? Is his arrow up, down, sideways, 45-degree angle?" Grigson said. "And we have to figure all these things out with guys in all different types of situations on this roster. There are guys across the board that are in a lot of different situations. But, again, when the coaches come back, when we seeing what's actually out there -- we have an idea, draft, juniors that have declared and things like that -- once that evolves we'll have a much better feel for what we need to do."

Richardson supposedly had a family emergency before the tital game.

Richardson is on the reserve-suspended list.

By suspending Richardson, the Colts can void the final guaranteed $3.18 million guaranteed for next season.

The Colts traded a first-round pick to the Cleveland Browns for Richardson two years ago.

Selected third overall, Richardson has been terrible.

He lost his starting job to Donald Brown two seasonsa go. He got it back this season, but lost it to Daniel Herron. Richardson has rushed for only 977 yards in 29 games with the Colts.
