Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown (knee) was held out of practice on Thursday, reports Mike Chappell. It's an alarming downgrade for Brown, who was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. This news suggests that his surgically-repaired knee is still not fully healthy.
Brown missed two games earlier in the season after getting a knee scope surgery, and left Week 9 early after aggravating the injury.
Fantasy Impact: Brown's knee is clearly not 100% yet, and the Colts may have been foolish to rush him back so soon after the surgery, especially now that they're in a surprise playoff race.
I expect him to suit up this week, but Vick Ballard is still getting the majority of snaps, and is the safer flex play in fantasy this week.
