Found September 17, 2012 on Fantasy Football SPIN:
Yesterday in a mysterious benching and/or groin injury to Steven Jackson after an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty rooky Daryl Johnson, not the much-hyped Isaiah Pead, stepped in and carried the load. Richardson did well in place of SJax carrying the ball 15 times for 82 yards and adding 2 receptions for 19 yards. Richardson did fumble late in the game.

The Skins loss IS on Josh Morgan
