The Indianapolis Colts say running back Donald Brown is questionable for Sunday's game against Miami.
He had been listed as probable most of this week after returning last weekend following in-season knee surgery, but team doctors found swelling in the knee Saturday.
Team officials now say Brown will be re-evaluated before Indy (4-3) turns in its list of inactive players 90 minutes before kickoff. If Brown does not play, rookie Vick Ballard would likely see the bulk of the action. Ballard has started Indy's last three games.
The Colts host Miami (4-3) in a matchup between teams that have surprised everyone by starting rookie quarterbacks and managing to spur talk of playoff hopes among their fans this season. Game time is 1 p.m.

INDIANAPOLIS - It looks like Andrew Luck needed only half a season to establish himself as a worthy successor to Peyton Manning. Luck completed 30 of 48 passes for 433 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' 23-20 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. The 433 yards set an NFL rookie record. Cam Newton had set the record with 432 yards last season. "...

After yet another close victory last weekend against the Titans, the Colts return home to welcome an equally surprising Dolphins team to Lucas Oil Stadium. The visit of Ryan Tannehill again pits Andrew Luck against a rookie counterpart, and (as is the case with Brandon Weeden) both quarterbacks have reason to lament the quality of receiver they're throwing to, so it should be...
