Trent Richardson to work out with Bills
The Buffalo Bills are suddenly desperate for help in their backfield. How desperate? Desperate enough to bring Trent Richardson in for a workout.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Richardson will visit the Bills on Tuesday in the wake of rookie running back Karlos Williams being labeled day-to-day with a concussion. Williams said he wasn’t feeling well after Sunday’s loss to the New York Giants and has been placed in the league’s concussion protocol. He will have to clear that before being allowed to return to action.
LeSean McCoy is already out with a hamstring injury, and it doesn’t sound like he will be returning anytime soon.
Why Richardson? We have no idea. The former Alabama star is a veteran with NFL experience, but he turned into a bust with the Cleveland Browns and was even worse after being dealt to the Indianapolis Colts. Then in the preseason, Richardson was cut by the Oakland Raiders following one of the most embarrassing runs you will ever see.
Bills fans can only hope Williams clears the concussion protocol in a timely manner.
