Found November 21, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
Vick Ballard played on 46 snaps in Week 11 while Donald Brown saw just 19. It’s unclear if Brown is limited by his ongoing knee issues or if he’s simply been passed up. Either way, Ballard is the only back we can trust in Indy. He started last week’s game and got eight carries on the first two drives while Brown watched. Averaging 16.8 touches per game over the last five weeks, he’s a flex play in a home game against the Bills Week 12. It will be interesting to see how well he plays against the Bills defense this week who looked extremely good.  Kyle Williams said in an interview this week on, there goal is to make the Colts one dimensional.  If the Bills can make the Colts run the ball to win, they could be in good shape, depending on what Bills defense shows up.
