Concern about Ahmad Bradshaw's ability to return from a neck injury which could potentially require surgery necessitates Trent Richardson's upward progress within the Indianapolis Colts' offense. Coach Chuck Pagano expects the running back to bust out soon. "(Richardson) is a between-the-tackles hard-nosed tough rugged runner" Pagano told NFL Media's Albert Breer this week. "And he's got 4.4 speed. So if he gets to the second level and happens to break a tackle he can take it the distance. And that's gonna happen. That'll come. He's a young player still. He's learning and obviously making the transition coming over from Cleveland being here now for three weeks." Richardson's paltry yards-per-carry numbers have been the subject of articles podcasts and water-cooler arguments. Richardson said he's made strides learning the Colts' offense which will allow him to see holes better and make big plays.
