Colts downgrade Donald Brown

As the Colts prepare to host the Dolphins in a showdown of teams that surprisingly are 4-3 each, Indy may not have running back Donald Brown.

Per the Associated Press, the Colts downgraded Brown from probable to questionable on Saturday, due to a knee injury that produced swelling the day before the game.

Brown’s status will now be determined at game time.  If he can’t play, Vick Ballard will start for Brown.

Dubbed the Colts’ “bell cow” back before the season, Brown has rushed for 319 yards in five games, missing two due to the knee injury.  He had 80 yards on 14 carries in a Week Eight win over the Titans.

    Makes no difference.. He’s a non factor anyways, Miami doesn’t allow 100 rushers. 21 games and counting

    Too late. I already downgraded him. Can a player get a negative on a scale of 1 to 5?
