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.
