“Newcomer of the Week” Texans Edition is Trent Richardson

Posted by Kevin Bowen on December 16, 2013 – 12:21 pm

Throughout the course of the season, Colts.com will run a “Newcomer of the Week” following each regular season game. With the Colts having an influx of the newcomers this season here’s a look at the “Newcomer of the Week” from Houston.

This week’s “Newcomer of the Week” is running back Trent Richardson.

Just prior to the Cincinnati game, Trent Richardson announced that he was feeling the best he had felt since arriving to Indianapolis in the middle of September.

Richardson’s stats over the past two weeks would certainly back up his statement. tempDD4_3090--nfl_mezz_1280_1024

On Sunday, Richardson had 23 touches for 102 yards, giving him 34 touches for 190 yards over the last two weeks.

Richardson’s effort on Sunday was vital considering he played 46 offensive snaps (out of a possible 70) once Donald Brown exited with a “stinger”.

“I come out and train and practice hard and make sure I do everything I can to be in that position for whenever they call on my number, I’m ready,” Richardson said after the 25-3 victory.

“Our offensive line did a tremendous job today. The wide receivers did a really good job today and tight ends. As a group, as an offensive unit, we did a really good job today.”

Richardson scored on a nine-yard shovel pass midway through the second quarter and caught a total of four passes for 38 yards.

His season long rush of 22 yards came in the second half as Richardson received all of the running back load once Brown went down (before Tashard Choice came in to run out the clock).

“Trent’s been practicing extremely well. Trending in the right direction, obviously. Feeling more comfortable with the offense, so you’re going to see him do nothing but take off from here,” Chuck Pagano said.

“We saw it two weeks ago, last week and now with the positive things that happened to him today, it’s great for Trent and great for our offense and great for his confidence.”

Other Newcomers of Note:

-Outside linebacker Erik Walden had three tackles and a 10-yard sack of Case Keenum on Sunday.

-Outside linebacker Bjoern Werner had his first career full sack in the NFL with a seven-yard takedown of Keenum in the fourth quarter.

-Safety LaRon Landry was a part of a terrific safety duo on Sunday and led the Colts with nine tackles (eight solo).

    What a great overall performance by everyone last week. I couldn’t be more happier for Trent. He took so much media abruse up to this point. He shown why he was worth a frist round pick. Go Trent, happy blazing trails.
