Brown had a phenomenal Thursday Night Football performance.
The Indianapolis Colts traded for RB Trent Richardson in hopes that he could revive an injury-plagued running back core.
Richardson has struggled thus far. In their 30-27 victory against the Tennessee Titans last Thursday, Richardson racked up 22 rushing yards on eight carries, respectively.
Fellow Colts RB Donald Brown, however, was very productive. On 14 carries, he tallied 80 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns, respectively. Brown has gotten more touches because of Richardson’s failure to be consistent.
If Richardson’s lack of production is constant, Brown’s quantity of touches will rise.
