Mike Chappell reports that Colts RB Donald Brown suffered torn cartilage during Sunday’s win over the Packers and has since had surgery on his knee. Chappell adds that Brown will likely miss 2-3 weeks and Vick Ballard will get the start this weekend.
The Colts will be up against one of the worst rushing defenses this weekend when they take on the New York Jets. In fact, the Jets actually rank No. 31 against the run. Delone Carter should also see some carries, but it’s hard to project what the split will look like at this point in time.
We’ll have updates throughout the week regarding the Colts running back situation.
