Colts | Donald Brown out for Week 6

Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown (knee) will not play in Week 6. Brown had surgery Tuesday, Oct. 9, to repair torn knee cartilage. RB Vick Ballard will start in Brown's place.

Fantasy Tip: Brown was coming off his best effort of the season in Week 5, recording 84 rushing yards against the Green Bay Packers. Vick Ballard, who will replace Brown in the starting lineup, is expected to share some time with Delone Carter. Ballard has only 21 rushing attempts for 42 yards; however, he does have a favorable Week 6 matchup against a New York Jets defense that has surrendered 479 rushing yards and five touchdowns in the last three weeks. Owners in desperate need of a starter should look to pick up Ballard, and even Carter, off the waiver wire this week. Brown will be out at least two to three weeks, so closely monitor how the team manages the workload between both backs moving forward.
