Colts RB Donald Brown played 49 offensive snaps out of 65 on Sunday and finished the game with 54 rushing yards on 14 carries (3.9 yards per carry). Richardson played 13 snaps and had 5 five carries for 19 yards (3.8 yards per carry).
“[He] earned the opportunity,” Pagano said of the new starters. “Donnie (Donald Brown) earned the opportunity the way he was working and running the football. Felt like, we’re still going to use two backs, but earned the opportunity to get in there and do that."
Richardson saw just 13 snaps against the Titans. It's another tough matchup against the Bengals in Week 14, though, where it looks like Brown will once again get the bulk of the carries.
