Donald Brown RB SD 7 Months

Donald Brown rushed 12 times for 31 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for four yards in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Jaguars.

Brown opened Sunday's scoring with a one-yard goal-line leap over the top to give Indy an early 7-0 lead. They wouldn't trail from then on. Brown finishes the best regular season of his career with a 102-557-6 line as a rusher and 27 receptions, two of which went for scores. He'll remain the more dynamic half of a timeshare with Trent Richardson during January's playoffs.

Donald Brown (stinger) is practicing again Thursday.

Brown has been fully cleared and is ready to rock. Unfortunately, he'll has a tough spot at Kansas City and will be sharing reps with Trent Richardson. Fantasy owners in Super Bowls should be reaching higher.

Donald Brown (stinger) is practicing Wednesday.

So much for owners dusting the cobwebs off Trent Richardson in fantasy's Super Bowl week. Brown's stinger turned out to be a mere scare and it looks like he's been cleared to suit up against the Chiefs Sunday. He'll form a value-crushing committee with T-Rich while newly signed Shaun Draughn sticks to special teams.

The Colts consider Donald Brown (stinger) day to day.

We're assuming the "stinger" is to Brown's neck, though there's been no official word. It's a day-to-day injury, but as Cowboys ILB Sean Lee has proven, it can be an extremely tricky one. Brown should be considered no better than 50-50 for Week 16. Trent Richardson turned in a predictably middling performance in Brown's absence against the Texans, and wouldn't be more than a mid-range FLEX option for the fantasy finals if Brown can't go.

Coach Chuck Pagano said he started Donald Brown Sunday because Brown he "earned the opportunity."

Brown has been badly outplaying Trent Richardson ever since the trade with Cleveland. The situation came to a head against the Titans as Brown played 52 snaps and Richardson saw just 13. "We're always trying to just make decisions based on what's best for the team and what gives us the best chance to win," Pagano said. Brown will be the feature back against the Bengals in Week 14, leaving T-Rich as a change-of-pace option.

Donald Brown rushed for one yards on two carries and caught one pass for a two-yard loss in Week 12 against the Cardinals.

The Colts were getting blown out early, so you'd think Brown would have been a bigger part of the offense with the Colts throwing the ball a ton. That wasn't the case. Trent Richardson was the guy in the backfield. He didn't have any success once again, totaling 26 yards on nine touches. Brown and the Colts get the Titans at home next week. Brown rushed for 80 yards and two touchdowns against them in Week 11. He's the preferred flex play in the Indy backfield.
