Colts RB Donald Brown ruled out for Week 14

Indianapolis Colts running back Donald brown has been ruled out for Week 14 because of an ankle injury. The Colts will continue to ride rookie back Vick Ballard @VickBallard. Brown was injured late during Sunday's contest against the Detroit Lions. Ballard should see a big increase in playing time and potential touches as Brown was averaging nearly 10 touches per game over the last few weeks. With such an early out, it's possible Brown could miss next week as well.

Fantasy Analysis:

Brown hasn't done much lately anyway. The more touches for Ballard, the better. Brown carried the ball six times for 13 yards last week and had 10 carries for 26 yards the week previous. These kinds of numbers only take away numbers from other players and hopefully Brown isn't anywhere near your roster. For Ballard owners, consider him a viable option against the Tennessee Titans as a flex play. It also helps that Ballard had his first rushing TD of the season last week.
