Found November 01, 2012 on The Colts Authority:
Gosh dang it, Donald.  We're sorry.  1742 career rushing yards (mostly as a backup) with a 4.2 average ypc, a vast majority of those yards coming after contact, and the hard-charging Donald Brown still gets a bad rap. (Bear with me, the link is coming) Michael Marot of the Associated Press did a story on Donald Brown's resurgence, which many believe is thanks in part to a scheme that fits him better and improved run blocking from the offensive line. Marot also includes a quote from Bruce Arians I now wish I'd included in the Colts Notebook: "I liked Donald coming out (of college)," said interim coach and offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who was with Pittsburgh then. "I thought he was a hard downhill runner with great speed. He has shown flashes of that speed for us and I love speed. He is more than a professional, he's a top-notch pro.

Colts RB Donald Brown making most of 2nd chance

(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By MICHAEL MAROT AP Sports Writer Donald Brown is getting a chance to prove himself and he's not about to let this opportunity slip away.

The 2009 first-round draft pick missed two games, then returned Sunday at...

Actually, according to Richards, it's a subluxation, or temporary, partial dislocation of his left shoulder. In other news...

Indianapolis rules out 2 starters for Miami game

Colts interim coach Bruce Arians says rookie tight end Coby Fleener and cornerback Vontae Davis will not play Sunday against Miami. Both were injured last weekend at Tennessee.

Matchup Spotlight: Winston Justice vs. Cameron Wake

As the Colts look to face Miami this week in Indianapolis, one of the primary matchups that may decide the result of the game will be the Dolphins' left defensive end Cameron Wake versus the Colts' right tackle Winston Justice.  Although Justice had a down game last week, allowing six hurries and one hit, he's had a very good year thus far in pass protection. Before...

Dolphins like Tannehill more than Colts' Luck

DAVIE, Fla. -- The "Suck for Luck" campaign was in full force a year ago. The Miami Dolphins were 0-7 and in position to land Andrew Luck with the top pick in the NFL draft. It didn't happen. The Dolphins suddenly turned matters around and finished 6-10. Indianapolis ended up with the highly touted quarterback. But the Dolphins have come out OK. They managed to get...

Miami Dolphins at Indianapolis Colts: Week 9 NFL Pick

Miami Dolphins (4-3) at Indianapolis Colts (4-3) Both of these teams sit at 4-3, meaning this game could easily have playoff implications and one or both of these teams could make the playoffs. I bet you didn’t see that coming. I would say these teams are pretty equal. I had Miami ranked 10th in my Power Rankings and Indianapolis ranked 11th. However, for some reason, Miami is...
