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."

Antonio Gates missed five of 72 offensive snaps Sunday.
The way his hamstring felt, it could have been more.
The Chargers tight end was back on the field Friday, present at an all-important practice after missing the previous two days. He was a full participant and is listed as probable to face the Bengals on Sunday, but the hamstring ailment is not a small, sweep-under-the-rug matter.
Hamstring injuries never are.
"It's tricky," Gates said Friday. "It's different. It's one of those injuries where you can't fully grasp whether or not you can do something because it's all running. Everything is based off running and power and holding off people on blocks, and the hamstring is a big part of that. Without the lower body, you couldn't play in this league. I'll see how it goes. I'm going to attack this rehab. I've got two more days. That's the best part about it.
Gates said if he had to play Friday, he wasn't sure he would have been able to go. But a couple more days will definitely help Gates leading up to Sunday's game. If he can't go, emerging star Ladarius Green would likely get a major bump up our TE rankings.
