Colts' Richard relishes first TD of his life

INDIANAPOLIS -- Jamey Richard wasn't rooting for Lance Ball to fumble into the end zone.

But he figures Ball is a heck of a lot more likely to have a chance to score again, so the Colts offensive lineman was hardly apologetic for pouncing on the loose ball for a fourth quarter touchdown that iced the Colts' 23-0 win over Tennessee.

"That's the first time, the first and only," he said, when asked about his scoring history. "He'll get another shot. Me, I'm not so sure when my next shot will come, so obviously I feel bad that I got it but at the same time I feel great that I got it."

Ball was just called up from the practice squad as the Colts were dealing with injuries that held Dominic Rhodes out of the game and limited Chad Simpson. He was undrafted out of Maryland.
