No on-field drills for Alabama RB Richardson

Trent Richardson will not participate in on-field drills at this week’s NFL Scouting Combine because of a minor knee injury, a league source said Wednesday.

The former Alabama star, considered the top running back in this year’s draft, suffered a minor injury in a practice leading up to last month’s BCS Championship Game, the source said, and had a “minor scope” about three weeks ago to alleviate his discomfort.

Richardson has made good progress since then, but as a precaution, he’ll limit his activity at the combine. He’s expected to be able to participate in all on-field testing at Alabama’s March 7 pro day.
