Jets' Richardson gets big workload upon return

Sheldon Richardson returned to the field Sunday for the New York Jets after serving a four-game suspension. Coach Todd Bowles wasted no time getting Richardson involved often.

According to's Darryl Slater, the big defensive lineman played 49 of 63 snaps his his team's victory over the Washington Redskins, sitting out only during the team's base 3-4 looks, which it opted against for much of the game.

Writes Slater:
As it turned out, Bowles opted for a lot of 4-3 alignments, with Richardson, [Leonard] Williams, end Muhammad Wilkerson, and nose tackle Damon Harrison on the field together.
