With Donald Brown hobbled by several injuries and now on injured reserve, Colts RB Vick Ballard has started the past 10 games. As he proved himself an every-down back with his pass catching and willingness and toughness in protection, his workload has increased.
Over the past two weeks, Ballard has run 37 times for 199 yards, including a 100-plus yard performance against the Texans in a loss this past week. He was at his best Sunday on the 80-yard third-quarter touchdown drive that brought the Colts within 23-17 of Houston. Ballard seems to have taken advantage of Brown's injuries this season and looks to be the Colts clear RB1. Unfortunately he's not being used at the goal line.

Rookie receiver DeVier Posey entered Sunday’s game with one catch for 19 yards. On Sunday, he had three catches for 46 yards — including a 36-yarder.
Posey was getting more playing time, ahead of No. 2 receiver Kevin Walter. Walter had two catches for 11 yards.
“We like what we see from Posey in practice, and we’re playing him more,” coach Gary Kubiak said.
“What has taken place over the period of the last month is a young player who has really stepped up, so we’re going to give him more opportunities to help us.”
