Paul Richardson injury may not be serious, but the competition is

Paul Richardson, a first drive star for the Seattle Seahawks in their 48-17 win over the LA Chargers on Sunday, has a sprained AC joint (shoulder) per Pete Carroll. Richardson made a nice diving grab in the first quarter, but the dive was deemed unnecessary by some and Richardson landed on hard on his shoulder.

Carroll only said that Richardson would be out “a bit” but typical diagnoses seem to fall in the 1-3 week range, which if true means that he could be back by Week 1. The problem for him is, “What could happen in those three weeks?”

Richardson will not only miss more practices and games that he shouldn’t be missing, but Kasen Williams, Kenny Lawler, Tanner McEvoy, Cyril Grayson, and David Moore are also anxious to win a job on the final roster and each made at least one nice play on Sunday. They’re also not hurt at the moment.

Meanwhile, rookie third round pick Amara Darboh missed the game with a chest injury.
