Richardson could be promoted from the Steelers' practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Cowboys, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Richardson has been stationed on Pittsburgh's practice squad since being released from the active roster following the team's Week 3 loss to the Eagles. After spending training camp with the Steelers as well, Richardson is seemingly more familiar with the offensive playbook than fellow practice squad member Karlos Williams, but it remains to be seen which player, if either, will be promoted to compensate for tailback DeAngelo Williams' (knee) absence going forward.

Richardson was released by the Steelers on Thursday, Chris Adamski of Trib Total Media reports.

Richardson had one carry for one yard in Pittsburgh's 34-3 loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

After attempting five rushes on their opening drive, the Steelers' fell behind and were playing catch-up all game. As a result, they only ran five more times the remainder of the game. With Le'Veon Bell (suspension) due to return in Week 4 against Kansas City, Richardson's role will be reduced even further.

Richardson had one carry for six yards in Pittsburgh's 24-16 win over Cincinnati Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

This was the first rushing attempt in an NFL game by Richardson, who has spent the better part of his career on the practice squad for several teams, since 2013. It may not be another three years before he gets another carry, but there is no reason for him to be on anyone's fantasy radar.

Richardson gained 20 yards on nine carries and four yards on one catch (one target) in Friday's preseason game against the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

After Le'Veon Bell (suspension) and DeAngelo Williams played the first half, Richardson handled the third quarter and then split work with Fitzgerald Toussaint in the fourth quarter. No clear winner emerged in the battle for the No. 3 running back spot, as Toussaint was also ineffective on the ground, gaining eight yards on six carries and 18 yards on two receptions (two targets). With Bell suspended for the first three games, the Steelers may keep both Toussaint and Richardson on the final roster, extending the audition period through Week 3.

Richardson totaled 15 yards on 10 carries, and caught one pass for six yards in Pittsburgh's 17-0 loss to Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

This was a definite step backwards for Richardson, who looked much better in the preseason opener against Detroit. Then again, the entire Steeler offense failed to show up, managing just 207 total yards. Fortunately for Richardson, his competition for Pittsburgh's third running back spot on the roster, Fitzgerald Tousaint, looked only slightly better, rushing for 26 yards on eight carrries. Both will get another opportunity to show why they deserve to be behind Le'Veon Bell (suspension) and DeAngelo Williams on the depth chart when they face New Orleans on Friday.

Richardson gained 44 yards on 11 carries and added 16 yards on two catches in Friday's 30-17 preseason loss to the Lions.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old tailback built on his impressive training camp performances, with his 44 yards leading all rushers on the night. Richardson has not received a regular-season carry since 2013, his second and final season with the Rams. He's competing with Fitzgerald Touissant for a third-string role behind DeAngelo Williams, with Friday's effort serving as a positive step towards winning that job.

Richardson has looked good in training camp thus far, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the Post-Observer, Richardson "looked fast" during the Steelers' offseason workouts, with the 26-year-old back -- who did not record a regular season carry in 2015, making a run at the team's No. 3 running back job. His main competition for the assignment is Fitzgerald Toussaint, with the player who lands the gig of note, given that Pittsburgh's top back Le'Veon Bell reportedly faces a four-game suspension to start the season.

Richardson has signed a reserve/future contract with the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Richardson thus joins the team's backup RB depth corps behind Le'Veon Bell, with DeAngelo Williams and Fitzgerald Toussaint also under contract with the team for the 2016 season.
