Brown downgraded to questionable/likely out today.

20 posts in this topic

Donald Brown (knee) has been downgraded to questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Brown was listed as probable after returning to a full practice Friday, but team doctors reportedly found swelling in his knee Saturday. His Week 9 status is now in doubt. Brown will be re-evaluated Sunday as a game-time decision. Even if active, he would be used in a committee role with Vick Ballard.

Hope he isn't turning into another perpetual injured player for the Colts. Like how he is stepping up his game, but has to be on the field to be of full value. Hopefully nothing serious and back Thurs. if sidelined today

I hope he plays, I need him on my fantasy since Ridley is on a bye. But I'm not so sure.

Now I have to decide between Brown, Ingram, and Felix Jones for my flex spot since a third of my team has a week 9 bye...

Appearing on NFL Network's GameDay Morning, Albert Breer reported that Donald Brown (knee) is unlikely to play on Sunday against the Dolphins.

Brown was downgraded from probable to questionable late on Saturday after the running back experienced swelling in his knee. Brown missed Weeks 6 and 7 after undergoing a knee scope but returned last week against the Titans. Vick Ballard will now take over feature back duties and could even play on third downs after the release of Mewelde Moore last week.

Well it looks like Ballard & Carter will be doing the work today.

Probably going to be seeing Robert Hughes in the game more.

    • That was last year.... not the case for this year... we are playing like zombies out there 
    • My point when I explain what the Colts did in 2013 is to remind posters here that we DID try to address the problem.   Posters repeated ask why hasn't Grigson tried to do more sooner?      What was he waiting for?      I'm simply reminding fans that Grigson invested serious money and draft picks hoping to solve our OL problem in his 2nd year.      We needed to give those moves time to either pan out and work,   or not pan out and get cut.      In the last few years,  he's added Mewhort,  Good, and Kelly,  and Reitz improved the quality of his game.      But we are still not a cohesive unit yet.     Unfortunately,  the OL often takes time to gell and became a solid working unit.       And that's where we are now.....    waiting for the unit to come together.   But we will likely take a step back this week.     Good is out with a bad back,  and I'm not sure how he's going to get replaced?        
    • I haven't seen one Chargers game all year not even Preseason football. I know Philip Rivers will play lights out like he normally does. However, it's difficult to make a prediction or score off a team I haven't watched once since Sept. 11th though.    I guess I abstain from any projections due to a lack of visual evidence or game viewership on my part. If our DBs are banged up our out, Rivers will have a field day with our secondary unfortunately. 
    • so true, but they are as banged up on offense as we've been on D. Looking at their skill positions and they will be without Gates, Oliver, and Johnson in addition to Woodhead and Allen...  I guess I'm not buying Melvin Gordon, yet.    I'm a homer all the way, but I still think that we win this one by more than a TD. 
    • 1 less than glowing complement about our GM does not mean that I am throwing out the baby with the bathwater CC1. You will recall that I complemented Grigs on Kelly, Anderson, & Parry correct?    Not exactly demanding that Grigs be tarred & feathered am I now? It's a little hard to make the case that SW1 is Mr. "negativity" after that. Also, there's a difference between crucifying a GM & pointing out that no front office execute gets gold stars for failures that never came to fruition BTW. The NFL isn't Kindergarten; No one gets a participation ribbon for just trying or showing up.
