Found September 27, 2013 on My Sports Rumors:
The Indianapolis Colts have wanted to wok Trent Richardson into lineup slowly by pairing him up with Ahmad Bradshaw. Unfortunately for them those plans have been scrapped as Bradshaw has been ruled out of Sunday’s game with a neck injury. With Ahmad out they’ve only got one running back left on the bench, Donald Brown. He’ll be obviously be the backup to Richardson. If this happened on any week this is the perfect week as the Colts take on the Jacksonville Jaguars and their bad run defense, well actually just bad team in general. Pagano: TRichardson has no choice but to carry load. Prob: Angerer, Bethea,Satele. Lefeged will play. Landry/Francois out. — Craig Kelley (@CraigKColts) September 27, 2013 The post Trent Richardson to carry the load appeared first on My Sports Rumors.

Indianapolis Colts: 2013 Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#18)

Last week: 25 (+7) I was shocked that not only did the Colts beat the 49ers, but they beat them handily in San Francisco. Previously in the Andrew Luck era, they were sweating out close wins against bad teams and getting blown out by good teams, especially on the road. Unless the 49ers are significantly worse than we expect them to be, the Colts just blew out a good team on the road...
