Colts desperate to crank up rushing game

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Trent Richardson viewed the Colts' running game as a three-man threat, right up until fellow running back Ahmad Bradshaw was placed on injured reserve this week with a broken left leg. ''I always say, `A three-headed monster,''' Richardson said. ''A lot of people say it's two-headed, but I say three-headed monster.'' The third is Daniel Herron - the only remaining...

The Ray Rice speculation of coming to Indianapolis is absurd

Ahmad Bradshaw is likely down for the year, barring some miracle, after fracturing his Fibula in Sunday nights loss to the Patriots. That leaves the Colts with an under-performing Trent Richardson, and special teams man Boom Herron at running back. And for some reason, Ray Rice’s name has started coming up since Monday morning. Yes, Chuck Pagano and Rice are familiar with each...

Indianapolis Colts issues start with the big boys up front

Simply put, the Colts were made to look like little boys against the New England Patriots Sunday night. Giving up over 200 yards rushing and held to a pathetic 19 yards on the ground. When your leading rusher is Andrew Luck it has been a bad night. Seven carries for Trent Richardson ended in 0 yards, as he was constantly hit before even getting close to the line-of-scrimmage.

RECAP: The New England Patriots have found a star in Jonas Gray

After taking it to the Broncos and Colts in consecutive weeks, there is no more doubt: The Patriots are the best team in the AFC, maybe the league.

Vince Wilfork: Patriots Able To Make Colts One-Dimensional By Stopping Run

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Opposing defenses have had an easy time stopping Indianapolis Colts running back Trent Richardson since he came into the NFL as the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 draft.

Trampled: Colts 20 Patriots 42

The Colts started things off with a three and out, then on defense, allowed the Patriots to march 89 yards, mostly on the ground, for the first touchdown of the game. It bore an eerie resemblance to their playoff matchup a few months ago. There were glimmers of hope here and there – and the game was mostly close until the fourth quarter, but overall, the defense was punch-less...

Indianapolis Colts: Don’t abandon the run

The run game was working very well for the Indianapolis Colts early on in the season, but they seemed to have left it behind the past few games. Last week, the Colts got behind early, so it makes sense, but it’s still concerning that the run game couldn’t get going. And now, against the New York Giants, the Colts have barely gotten the ball to Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw...
