Trent Richardson was a healthy inactive for the Indianapolis Colts last weekend against the Denver Broncos, and it appears the running back will be inactive again this weekend against the New England Patriots.
Due to personal reasons, according to Kevin Bowen of Colts.com, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 draft did not make the trip to New England on Saturday. He was also not in attendance for the Colts’ morning walkthrough, as Bob Kravitz of WTHR.com reported.
Richardson rushed for 519 yards on 3.3 yards per carry during the regular season, adding 229 yards receiving and three total touchdowns. The 24-year-old Alabama product has since been eclipsed on the depth chart by Daniel ‘Boom’ Herron and undrafted rookie Zurlon Tipton, playing just one snap in the wild-card round before sitting out the divisional round.
In his place, Herron and Tipton have combined for 173 rushing yards, 135 receiving and two touchdowns in Indianapolis’ two postseason games.
They will be turned to again in Sunday’s 6:40 p.m. AFC Championship Game against New England.
