New York Jets RB Daryl Richardson has been informed of his impending release, according to sources, Saturday, Aug. 30.
Huddle Up: Richardson was beaten out by Bilal Powell for a roster spot. Only 24, Richardson could still catch on with another RB-needy team as insurance.

New York Jets RB Daryl Richardson has not participated during organized team activities because of a toe injury but should be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: The ex-St. Louis Ram will need to impress in camp just to make the roster with Chris Johnson, Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory, among others, currently ahead of him on the Jets' RB depth chart.

The St. Louis Rams waived RB Daryl Richardson on Thursday, May 15.
Huddle Up: Richardson had 638 yards from scrimmage his rookie season in 2012, but slipped to 336 in an injury-plagued 2013 (6 games) and became expendable with the emergence of 2013 rookie standout Zac Stacy and the selection of Auburn rookie Tre Mason in the third round last week.

St. Louis Rams general manager Les Snead said he believes RB Daryl Richardson will be able to compete for playing time next season after struggling with injuries this season. 'We've all seen what he can do. Some injuries derailed him a little bit. ... What you like about the whole thing is as you bring in more players, as we all grow here, there's more competition,' Snead said. Richardson could be a change-of-pace back for the team but will need to improve his pass catching and pass protection.
Huddle Up: Richardson was expected to be the heir to Steven Jackson's carries in St. Louis, but that gig ultimately fell to Zac Stacy. And with Benny Cunningham and Isaiah Pead still in the mix, it's a crowded Rams backfield. At best Richardson can hope for a complementary role with the possibility of increased touches should Stacy go down with an injury.

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher wouldn't say who would be the starting running back this weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars after RB Daryl Richardson hinted that he wouldn't be starting in Week 5. The Rams are currently last in the league in rushing, averaging just over 47 yards per game. Richardson is averaging a measly 2.7 yards per carry. 'We have just had one day of practice and all the backs got to participate in practice, so we've got different things for different style of runners,' Fisher said.
Huddle Up: The Jaguars struggle at everything, including stopping the run. However, no Rams' running back is worth starting right now. Benny Cunningham could be next in line to get a shot but right now St. Louis' backfield is a fantasy mess to avoid.

St. Louis Rams RB Daryl Richardson said on Twitter that he isn't going to start in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Richardson apparently didn't elaborate, so it's unknown if he's not starting because his foot injury is still bothering him or because Isaiah Pead is a better option in Jeff Fisher's mind. It's a favorable matchup against the Jaguars, so whomever does get the nod for the Rams could be a fantasy helper this week.

St. Louis Rams RB Daryl Richardson practiced in full Wednesday, Sept. 25, and he is listed as probable for the Week 4 game against the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Richardson was listed as a full participant in practice last week as well, but someone apparently stepped on his injured foot on the first play and he was extremely limited the rest of the way. So it appears he'll at least be available for the start of the game, but there are no guarantees beyond that.

St. Louis Rams RB Daryl Richardson (foot) has been practicing this week on a limited basis and expects to play in Week 4 versus the San Francisco 49ers Thursday, Sept. 26. He leads the team with 30 carries and 98 yards in three weeks despite playing just two snaps in Week 3 before aggravating his injury.
Huddle Up: Sure, Richardson will likely play, but how much fantasy trust can you place in him after what transpired last week? Size up your RB options carefully.

St. Louis Rams RB Daryl Richardson (foot) was listed as a limited participant in practice Monday, Sept. 23.
Huddle Up: Richardson dealt with a foot injury all last week, then was stepped early in the Week 3 loss to the Cowboys and didn't log a rushing attempt or pass reception. Now his biggest hurdle is a short week leading up to Thursday night's game against the 49ers. See what he can do over the next few days.

St. Louis Rams RB Daryl Richardson was able to take part in just one play in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys. His injured foot was stepped up, and he was forced from the game and unable to return. Isaiah Pead and Benny Cunningham split carries the rest of the way, but neither did much with the opportunity. Pead carried six times for 20 yards, while adding seven receptions and 43 yards. Cunningham had four carries for 16 yards, while adding one catch for six yards.
Huddle Up: This looks as if it will be a problematic situation for Richardson, who wasn't exactly establishing himself as the Rams' go-to back anyway. Expect the St. Louis situation to remain an RBBC for the foreseeable future.
