Colts RB Trent Richardson to miss AFC Championship game


Looks as if running back Trent Richardson’s era is winding down in Indianapolis. Richardson missed Saturday’s walk-through in Indianapolis and will miss Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots because of a family situation.

“I had to miss walk-through,” Richardson told on Sunday. “I’m dealing with a very serious family emergency. I’m still at the hospital. I wouldn’t purposely just miss walk-through.”

Richardson was on the inactive list last weekend for the divisional playoff game against the Denver Broncos. Late this week, he said he was preparing to start on Sunday, and would never be on the inactive list again.
