Donald Brown upgraded to full practice Thursday: Fantasy implications

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

Donald Brown was upgraded to full practice Thursday and is on track to suit up against the Titans. We break down the fantasy implications.

Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown (knee) was upgraded to a full practice on Thursday, per owner Jim Irsay. Brown got in limited practice on Wednesday and the Colts planned to re-evaluate him on Thursday. They clearly liked what they saw, and Brown is now on track to play against the Tennessee Titans in Week 8.

Brown missed the past two games with a knee scope surgery. Vick Ballard has been playing in his stead.

Fantasy Impact: This is great news for Brown, who's recovery has gone much faster than expected. Not so great for Ballard, who may see his carries reduced after getting over 100 total yards in Week 7.

Brown is still not a guarantee to start, so keep an eye out for Sunday's inactive reports. Brown has hardly been inspiring this season, but he's a decent RB2/flex option against Tennessee's dismal run defense.
