The Terre Haute Tribune Star reports that Indianapolis Colts RB Donald Brown (knee) is still expected to play in Week 9 against the Miami Dolphins. Brown sat out Thursday's practice despite not being on the injury reports earlier in the week. He has already missed some time this season with knee scope surgery.
Brown has 74 carries for 319 yards and one TD on the season.
Fantasy Impact: Midweek downgrades in practice are almost never a good sign, so I'm a bit skeptical about Brown's status this week. We'll have a clearer picture once official injury reports are released later today.
If Brown can't go, Vick Ballard will get the majority of carries, though neither guy is an appealing fantasy play against Miami's tough defense.
