ST. LOUIS -- Daryl Richardson was surprised when he found out this off-season that longtime NFL running back Steven Jackson was no longer a St. Louis Ram. But Richardson also knew what Jacksons signing as a free agent with the Atlanta Falcons meant for him. "It was shocking to hear it, but of course, it means a bigger role for me and an opportunity to step up and have a bigger part on the team," said Richardson, a second-year pro who is one of several backs trying to take Jacksons old spot. Richardson played a larger part on last years team than probably he or most anyone else anticipated. In addition to having Jackson entrenched as the starter, the Rams used a second-round pick in 2012 on Isaiah Pead from Cincinnati. St. Louis picked Richardson, a 5-foot-10, 195-pound running back out Abilene Christian, five rounds later. Pead was seen by many as Jacksons heir apparent. But Richardson outplayed Pead and his quickness proved to be a nice change of pace to Jacksons battering style. Richardson played in 16 games and rushed 98 times for 475 yards, an average 4.8 yards per carry. He also had 24 catches for 163 yards. With Jackson gone, the Rams are looking over all their options at running back. Pead is still in the mix, though he has suspended for the first game for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy. Also looking to enter the mix is Zac Stacy, a fifth-round selection this April from Vanderbilt. Rams coach Jeff Fisher has not officially named a starter, but he has nothing but good things to say about Richardson. "I think Daryl came back in great shape," Fisher said. "We got a pretty good idea of what Daryl can do. "Were going to continue to push him through the preseason and the preseason games, and we expect him to have a productive year for us." So does Richardson, who wants to prove that he is more than a change of pace player. "You have to believe you can be an every-down player," he said. "You have to have that mind frame and that mentality." In the Rams preseason opener Thursday, a 27-19 setback in Cleveland, Richardson did nothing to hurt himself. He had four carries for 24 yards and also caught two balls for 20 yards. Still, Richardson is taking nothing for granted. "Im just going to play out the competition," Richardson said. "Im excited about the season and Im just trying to get better every day." Mark Ingram Jersey . Paul Pierce couldnt believe he missed at the end. Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the leagues most productive bench, and Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night after blowing a 27-point lead. Trey Hendrickson Jersey . Pierce was ejected in the third quarter of Indianas 103-86 win Monday. George Hill stole a bad pass and was going in for a layup, and Pierce hustled back and appeared to be trying to wrap him up. http://www.saintsfootballpro.com/Saints-Andrus-Peat-Jersey/ . The Vikings announced Thursday that Priefer will be one of seven holdovers from the previous staff, along with offensive line coach Jeff Davidson, wide receivers coach George Stewart and others. Norv Turner will mark his 30th year of coaching in the NFL as the offensive co-ordinator, as widely reported for weeks, and George Edwards will be the defensive co-ordinator. Ted Ginn Jr Jersey . Inter president Erick Thohir says in a club statement on Wednesday that Vidic is "one of the worlds best defenders and his qualities, international pedigree, and charisma will be an asset. Zach Strief Jersey .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. Some of the sports stories The Associated Press is covering Wednesday. A full Sports Digest will be sent by about 3 p.m. All times EST:- CHAPECO, Brazil -- Six players, one goalie coach and a handful of support staff are all that is left of the Chapecoense soccer club after a plane crash in Colombia killed 71 people, including 19 members of the team.
