Trent Richardson is huge; Not in a good way, Up to 240 pounds?

ESPN’s Mike Wells, reported Monday that prior to Trent Richardson’s absence from the walkthrough that got him suspended, the team was already upset with the running back about weight issues and lack of accessibility.

The weight issues, per Wells, began after a Week 6 hamstring injury. The 24-year-old back went from 225 pounds to start the season to around 240 pounds later, according to a source.

The failure to let the team know he wouldn’t be at the walkthrough the day before the AFC Championship Game appears to have been the final straw leading to the suspension.

He was suspended for the playoff games and is now likely to be cut, but can he get back on track?
