Indianapolis Colts running back Donald Brown (knee scope) will be sidelined for at least the next two weeks. The Colts running back was starting to find his place in the Indy offense, with the organization in the midst of a turnaround. Unfortunately, this will be a minor setback for the young tailback.
Brown will miss this weekend's game versus the New York Jets, leaving backup running back Vick Ballard to take over. Pending Ballard doesn't burst onto the scene in a big way, it should be Brown's job once he returns.
Fantasy Analysis: Whatever fantasy value Donald Brown had is in jeopardy at the moment. If Ballard emerges, it could take away reps from Brown when he does return. So not only do owners have to fret about their flex for the next two weeks, but perhaps the rest of the season.
Owners of Brown should not hesitate to pickup Vick Ballard and sub him in while Brown is sidelined. If you strategize accordingly, if Brown loses his starting job, it should not hurt your lineup at all.
