Rosenthal: Brown to Sit

As if the AFC game of the week couldn't get more confusing, it looks like Donald Brown, now listed as questionable, is probably not going to play against Miami due to swelling in his knee. Robert Mathis has been confirmed, however; good new for the Colts. I'm not overly concerned about Brown; we need him next week, and Ballard's done a good job filling in for him (along with Andrew Luck). The Colts should still have an effective running game, and their defense can only get better. Speaking of …

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports that quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who is recovering from a knee and quadriceps injury, is expected to start at quarterback. Breer also reports that Tannehill's top wide receiver, Brian Hartline, is also expected to play barring a setback to his groin injury in warmups, according to a source that has spoken with the player.

… so Mathis's return is key. If he can free up Freeney, both should make an impact today.
