Fisher: "I think Daryl [Richardson] comes back as our starter"

In the Rams running back competition, head coach Jeff Fisher has as much influence as anyone else when it comes to which back will get the largest workload.

And here's a hit-you-over-the-head type of clue from Fisher on who will win that competition:

Although the team used a second-round pick on Isaiah Pead in 2012, it was Daryl Richardson, a seventh-round pick last year, that was the second-most productive back behind Steven Jackson.

Through the first half of last season, Jackson (501) had only 67 more yards from scrimmage than Richardson (434) although Jackson finished the season strong. In the final eight regular-season games, Jackson (862 YFS) outproduced Richardson (204) more than four to one.

Going into this season, Isaiah Pead is suspended for the season opener so perhaps rookie Zac Stacy will have an opportunity to pass Pead on the depth chart early in the season.
