Yikes! I think he did a decent job this season coming off the bench in spot duty. Lets hope Vick Ballard can hold up the rest of the season.

And he's replaced by Deji Karim and Mwelde Moore. Arggghhhh! Talk about signing two players who don't equal 1 of Donald Brown. I also see that we've signed Dave Megetts son Davin Megett to the practice squad and released Alvester Alexander for the 100th time. It appears Megett was originally signed as an UFA this season by the Texans. I wonder are we trying to squeeze information out of him about their offense and their calls.

I hate all this bad running back news!

Ugh... We need some RBs BAD. Everyone is injured LOL.

I thought Sunday at one point we'd have no RB, Ballard went out for a play or two.

Losing Brown hurts. Moore used to be good in blitz pickup and was a good receiver. Karim was ok in preseason and had some moments vs Jacksonville. This is about as good as the Colts could do but Brown was a big play threat and played his best football at times this year.

They have to be stop gap at best. I hope Carter is okay, he and Ballard are going to be the main guys on Sunday.

just depth most likely. moore could be the 3rd down back though.

He was totally unimpressive both as a blocker and runner on his first stint. The hope is that he should know the plays well enough to not get Luck killed.

I see they signed Davin Meggett to the PS. He may have the most potential out of the new guys. Darn, I had a lot of hope for Hughes.

i doubt he sees much playing time. i think ballard has impressed enough to not need a rotation at RB.

At least Moore knows the offense and was still available. We got lucky.

I have to think that we are one of the most injuried, if not THE most injured team in the NFL. It seems every two weeks we are putting another key player on IR.

Bummer for DB, lots of potential but I think we might have seen the last of him in a Colts uniform.

My guess is yes. Brown was not a Grigson guy. Neither was Carter. Vick Ballard is. I'd be surprised to see either Brown or Carter back next year. Ballard has shown enough that he can be a lead back in the NFL. If Grigson can improve the line, Ballard might even be a top tier back.

DB is better than I initially gave him credit for. I think he get's his last season with the Colts, although I wouldn't be upset or surprised if he's let go. I do have to say if this is so long, then I salute him for providing us with the one of the most memorable Peyton moments..ever!

All true but getting rid of Carter and Brown sounds extreme, Why remove two players who have at least year left on there deal when neither are the problem only to have 2 unecessary holes to fill. I think both will be back next year and guys like Moore and Karim will be cut again, Both were brought in for depth

I disagree on Mewelde Moore. He had one bad game with the Colts this year with a fumble and a drop. He was called for holding twice on plays that McGlynn and Justice whiffed on blocks.....that Luck would have been killed spot on.

He is a veteran and has always been considered a reliable 3rd down back and pass blocker. He can also handle kickoffs when needed. Ballard, Carter, Karim, and Moore are fine. Not sure where the anti-Moore stuff is coming from.....why we EVER signed Alexander to the PS to begin with was a waste of time.

Like Donald Brown or not, he will be missed. Here is to hoping Ballard and Carter can hold up, and hold onto the ball!! GO Colts and good luck to DB in his recovery :colts: :colts: :colts: ...as well as Hughes. :coltslogo: :coltslogo: :coltslogo:

I don't know, he missed a lot of time.

This hurts a bit. I have been wanting Carter to get more carries. Now here is his chance. Karim looked good at times in the preseason also

No way does Brown get cut in the offseason. He is our fastest back, he can juke guys out of their shoes, and his blocking is top notch. Re-signing him the following offseason is a different story, but he will be on the roster next year.

    • Just to prove it really is possible:       Had to adjust some things because Johnson went a few picks ahead and Qualls went way earlier than expected. But I pretty much was able to get the first 4 picks all in order.
    •   If the Saints make the playoffs in the next year or two again with Brees nearing his final run in the league, I think they might have to consider him. Or they should. His stats are usually off the charts, but they need to be back in the playoffs. 
    •   I'd love to get him in the third or fourth. Fast physical lber with a lot of pop in his tackles. He'd go sooner if he didn't get hurt. 
    •   I like it too though I am torn on Smoot. 
    • I think the argument at this point is due to the lack of talent elsewhere. We have Anderson, Langford, Ridgeway and to a lesser extent Kerr (if we keep him) at DE. That is a fairly solid rotation, although not elite. That being said, the 2 most promising players are very young and could mature into above average - elite players given time and reps. Not really necessary to write them off and relegate them further down the depth chart. With the way the CBA is, the best chance for them to progress is in game situations.    OLB on the other hand, we have Maggitt, Ayers and a couple camp bodies on the roster. We essentially have 2 rotational guys (at best) that have no business starting, and nothing else.    OLB = Major need DE = Not major need   Im not against grabbing a DE in this draft (if they are clearly the top player on the board, or at least the top defensive player) simply because any talented player will help the defense at this point, but I wouldnt call DE a position of Major Need.
