Colts thin at RB

Donald Brown proved in 2011 to be a more reliable back than the bust he’s been labeled. That said, the cupboards are pretty bare behind him as’s Gregg Rosenthal points out:

It’s not like there are great options behind Brown. Delone Carter, Darren Evans and late-round draft pick Vick Ballard are the only other players on the Colts’ depth chart.

Joe Flacco, Matt Ryan and Cam Newton are recent rookie quarterbacks who greatly benefited from a strong running game. It’s hard to see the Colts doing Andrew Luck the same favor.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
