Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) was spotted with his right foot in a walking boot during minicamp practice Wednesday, June 12. He had surgery on the foot six months ago and continues to be brought along slowly in his recovery. He plans to be ready to go when Indy's training camp opens July 27. The Colts see him as more than an occasional contributor, but his role will be clarified the closer they get to Week 1.
Fantasy Tip: Bradshaw will probably be the primary shareholder with Vick Ballard in terms of touches, with Donald Brown likely bringing up the rear. It's a messy situation in which none of these options should be addressed as anything more than an RB3.

The Indianapolis Colts likely would release RB Delone Carter or RB Donald Brown during the preseason if they are able to sign free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw (Giants) at some point.

The Indianapolis Colts are talking with free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw (Giants) about a contract.
Fantasy Tip: Bradshaw would be joining Vick Ballard, Donald Brown and Delone Carter in the team's backfield if he signs. It is not known what their roles would be, but Ballard could be a two-down back with Bradshaw being the third-down and change-of-pace back. Ballard probably would be a No. 4 running back while Bradshaw would be a No. 4 running back in point-per-reception league and a No. 5 back in standard leagues.

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard is expected to enter training camp as the team's No. 1 running back, but that doesn't mean RB Donald Brown will not also see playing time. Head coach Chuck Pagano sees Ballard as a player who gets stronger as the game wears on, while Brown is considered more of a home run hitter for the offense.
"Can Vick be an every-down guy? Yeah. Can Donnie be an every-down guy? Yeah. They are different types of runners and are more than capable on third down, knowing the protections and picking up blitzers and being effective once they get out to catch the football and doing those things out of the backfield," Pagano said. "Vick is a solid, solid guy; Donnie is a home run hitter," Pagano said. "If he gets the edge and hits a crease, he can take it the distance."
Fantasy Tip: Ballard should be viewed as a third fantasy running back who could have slightly more value in PPR leagues. Brown is a handcuff pick and likely nothing more than a sixth back in deep leagues.

The Indianapolis Colts placed RB Donald Brown (ankle) and FB Robert Hughes (knee) on the Injured Reserve Tuesday, Dec. 11, and re-signed RBs Deji Karim and Mewelde Moore to the active roster in corresponding moves. Also, the team signed free-agent RB Davin Meggett (Texans) to the practice squad and released RB Alvester Alexander from the practice squad. OG Justin Anderson (undisclosed) was placed on the practice squad injured list.

The Indianapolis Colts have declared OT Bradley Sowell, RB Donald Brown, OL Joe Reitz, DL Kellen Heard, LB Mario Harvey, WR Nathan Palmer, FS Tom Zbikowski inactive for Week 14.
Fri, 07 Dec 2012 12:09:00 -0800
Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown (ankle), OG Joe Reitz (head) and SS Tom Zbikowski (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 7, and have been ruled out for Week 14.
Wed, 05 Dec 2012 09:08:31 -0800
Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown (ankle) will not play Week 14 because of an ankle injury.
Fantasy Tip: With Brown out, Vick Ballard will carry the load for Indy against a Tennessee Titans run defense that is quite generous for opposing rushers. Consider Ballard a No. 2 RB or solid flex play in Week 14.
Sun, 02 Dec 2012 13:01:55 -0800
Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in Week 13 and is considered questionable to return.
Fri, 30 Nov 2012 10:20:13 -0800
Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown (knee) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 30, and is listed as probable for Week 13.
