Daryl Richardson RB NYJ 2 Months

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.

Jets claimed RB Daryl Richardson off waivers from the Rams.

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.

Rams declared RB Daryl Richardson, CB Brandon McGee, C Scott Wells, OG Shelley Smith, OT Mike Person, DT Jermelle Cudjo, and DE Gerald Rivers inactive for Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Richardson remains behind Isaiah Pead as the No. 3 running back. Wells has a broken fibula. RG Harvey Dahl is back from his MCL injury.

Rams RB Daryl Richardson (foot) is inactive for Week 10 against the Colts.

As is TE Lance Kendricks (finger). Richardson's absence means Zac Stacy should be backed up by Benny Cunningham, with Isaiah Pead perhaps getting a touch or two. Either way, Stacy is going to cede very few touches to his backups. Also inactive for the Rams are QB Brady Quinn, OG Harvey Dahl, OL Barrett Jones, T Mike Person and DE Gerald Rivers. OT Rodger Saffold is taking Dahl's place at right guard.

Daryl Richardson (foot) was downgraded from limited practice Thursday to no practice on Friday and is questionable for Week 9.

Whereas Zac Stacy practiced on both Thursday and Friday and appears all set to play against the Titans, change-of-pace back Richardson's outlook is less clear. Richardson is not worth using in any fantasy leagues this week.
