Richardson Remains Front Runner with Rams
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Without doing much in the second week of the preseason, Daryl Richardson solidified his status as the St. Louis Rams' front runner at running back.
Isaiah Pead got the start against Green Bay on Saturday night, giving coaches a better chance to evaluate him with the first string. He didn't help his chances by gaining just 19 yards on 11 carries in a 19-7 loss.
Rookie Zac Stacy did not dress.
Richardson played sparingly, but his 24-yard reception was among Sam Bradford's top plays. And coach Jeff Fisher says he's still No. 1.
The Rams (0-2) play at Denver (1-1) on Saturday with most starters getting extended playing time.
