This offers little solace to those who started Rams running back Daryl Richardson in Week 4 and were left with an empty box score since Richardson's day ended after two snaps when his injured foot was inadvertedly stepped on by a Cowboys defender in the first quarter. Richardson has been dealing with foot problems since Week 1, and he will be limited in practice during the upcoming week, but he said Monday that he is "good to go" for Thursday's game versus the 49ers.
The Niners' run defense has been weak in the first few weeks of this season, but Richardson is not recommended as even a flex play for Thursday. He has averaged just 3.3 yards per carry and will probably have to share carries with Isaiah Pead and maybe Benny Cunningham. Pead, who was on the field for 42 snaps in Richardson's absence on Sunday, didn't do a whole lot with his 13 touches -- six carries, 20 yards; seven receptions, 43 yards. But he should be added in most leagues in the event that Richardson's foot issues persist.
