Colts Suspend Trent Richardson For Two Games

Jan 23, 2015 1:11 PM

the Indianapolis Colts suspended Trent Richardson for two games, though it is unclear if it is for the final games of 2014 or will carryover to 2015.

Richardson was deactivated for Sunday’s loss to the Patriots after not traveling with the club. He missed the club’s Saturday walk-through, though Richardson indicated it was for a “serious family emergency,” per ESPN.

The Colts traded a No. 1 pick in 2013 to the Cleveland Browns for Richardson.

Colts' Josh McNary Charged With Rape

Jan 14, 2015 9:58 PM

Indianapolis Colts backup linebacker Josh McNary has been charged with rape, criminal confinement with bodily injury and battery resulting in bodily injury.

According to the probable cause affidavit, two Indianapolis police officers said a 29-year-old woman accused an unknown man they later determined to be McNary of attacking her in the early morning hours of Dec. 1. Police, according to the report, determined the man was McNary after investigating a cellphone the woman claimed she took from the man's apartment.

In the report, police said the woman also picked McNary's image out of a group of photos.

The police also wrote that when they arrived at McNary's apartment to investigate, McNary said: "I know why you're here." The report said McNary claimed to have preserved evidence because he expected the police would be coming.

Nov 18, 2014 2:16 PM

The running back situation is impacted by the signing of Cribbs.
