Donald Brown will miss 2-3 weeks with a knee injury suffered during the Colts' win over the Packers last week. We break down the fantasy implications.

Donald Brown will miss 2-3 weeks after suffering a knee injury during the Indianapolis Colts' win over the Green Bay Packers last weekend. According to Phillip Wilson of the Indianapolis Star, Brown had his knee scoped Tuesday due to torn cartilage in his knee.

Fantasy Impact: If you were counting on Brown in your fantasy lineup this week, get started on finding a suitable replacement. For the Colts, this mean that Vick Ballard should get the start in Week 6 against the New York Jets, with Mewelde Moore and Delone Carter also possibly seeing touches. None of the three running backs have played much, nor been particularly effective this season. Unless you are absolutely desperate, you are better off waiting to see how the situation shakes out this weekend before making any roster decisions.
