The Bills are working out RB Trent Richardson after reporting that Karlos Williams suffered a concussion on Sunday.

The Buffalo Bills will workout the former first round RB on Tuesday.

Multiple media outlets are reporting that the Buffalo Bills will be working out Trent Richardson today. Buffalo is suddenly thin at the position as their top two backs, LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams, are both dealing with injuries. McCoy is trying to recover from a hamstring injury and Williams suffered a concussion against the Giants. Currently, the team has two running backs on their roster: Anthony "Boobie" Dixon and Cierre Wood.

Richardson, the former third overall pick of the Browns in the 2012 NFL draft, has never come close to matching the hype that surrounded him coming out of Alabama. The back finished his rookie season with 12 total touchdowns, 11 on the ground, but he only averaged 3.6 yards per carry.

Believe it or not, that's the highest YPC average in Richardson's short career. He spent time with the Browns and Colts in his second year in the league, rushing for 563 yards on 188 carries. a shade under three yards per carry. In 2014, Richardson finished the year with 519 yards on 159 carries (3.3 YPC). Most recently, he was released by the Raiders.

If the Bills sign Richardson, it's doubtful that he'd see much playing time in Week 5 against the Titans.
