NFL: Divisional Round-Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots

Trent Richardson was considered a disappointment last season, and for good reason as the Indianapolis Colts gave up a first-round draft pick for the running back.

Richardson, however, looks to answer his critics this year now that he's more familiar with the Colts offense and playbook. Richardson is even setting the bar high for himself, too.

"A thousand [rushing yards] is not the goal," he said, via Stephen Holder of the Indy Star. "For me, it's personal. I'm going to keep it to myself. But a thousand is not it for me. It's higher."

Though there is such thing as overconfidence, Holder explains that he is seeing some good things from the running back.

You can see the resulting bounce in Richardson's step in daily practices, something that has a direct correlation to the burst he's shown running through creases in the defense. Since sitting out the first week of practice with a hamstring strain, Richardson has looked increasingly sharp.

It helps that this is, he says, the healthiest he's ever been in training camp after dealing with injuries the past few years (including two knee surgeries prior to his rookie season in 2012).

We'll see if Richardson can produce this season.
