Jets RB Daryl Richardson (toe) should be ready for training camp.
Richardson has been sitting out OTAs with a turf toe injury that plagued him throughout the 2013 season. With a crowded depth chart ahead of him, Richardson will need a strong, healthy training camp to crack the Jets' final roster.

Rams waived RB Daryl Richardson.
Someone was going to be the odd man out in St. Louis' crowded backfield after the Rams spent the No. 75 overall pick on Tre Mason, but it was expected to be Isaiah Pead, not Richardson. Playing through turf toe, Richardson was dreadful as a sophomore after opening the season as the Rams' de facto starter, managing only 215 yards on 69 carries (3.11 YPC). Just one year removed from a successful rookie campaign as a change-of-pace back, Richardson is unlikely to make it through waivers unclaimed.

Daryl Richardson battled turf toe the entire 2013 season and points to that as one of the main reasons he struggled as a second-year pro.
Richardson suffered the injury in the season opener. It affected his push-off and made planting and cutting difficult. Richardson averaged just 3.1 YPC as a sophomore and didn't even dress for the final eight games. GM Les Snead remains confident Richardson can return to a prominent offensive role, but for now the Rams want Richardson to stay off his feet and let the toe heal.

Daryl Richardson (thigh) is listed as doubtful for Week 17.
After averaging 4.8 YPC as a rookie in 2012, Richardson's disappointing sophomore year ends with a 3.1 clip and a lost starting job to Zac Stacy. Richardson may have a place in St. Louis' long-term plans, but only as a perimeter-oriented change-of-pace back. His value in Dynasty fantasy leagues is minimal.
