The third time is the charm.
For the third time in three weeks, Jalen Richard gets a mention in this column. The first two games, Richard was inactive due to an injury, but now it sounds like he is good to go.
Richard has been one of the camp standouts, and expectations for him are getting increasingly high. Not just from the fans, but from the coaches as well, who have praised him.
This will be Richard’s chance to make a late push for a roster spot. George Atkinson III and Taiwan Jones are battling for the third running back job, but Richard can change that with a big game.
It sounds like he’ll be given opportunity to do so, as he might be in on some first-team reps.
The team is obviously very high on the Richard. We’ll find out soon what all the hype is about.
