Colts running back Trent Richardson had fallen so far on the depth chart that he was slated to play special teams in Denver on Sunday.  And then he slid even farther.

Richardson is among the Colts’ inactive players for the AFC divisional playoff against the Broncos, despite being healthy.

Also inactive are cornerback Jalil Brown, cornerback Sheldon Price, linebacker Henoc Muamba, offensive lineman Xavier Nixon, offensive lineman Jonathan Harrison, and defensive lineman Zach Kerr.

Replacing Richardson on the game-day roster will be running back Michael Hill, who signed with the Colts earlier in the week.

It’s hardly a ringing endorsement for Richardson, the third overall pick in the 2012 draft.  A year later, the Browns unloaded Richardson onto the Colts for a first-round pick in 2013.  That became, with a trade up four spots, Johnny Manziel.

During the regular season, Richardson rushed for 519 yards, with an average per attempt of 3.3 yards.
