A Full Practice for Indianapolis RB Donald Brown

nfl.com - [Full Article]

It appears that Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts will return from their bye without running back Joseph Addai.

Addai didn't practice on Saturday and is listed as doubtful on the Colts' official injury report ahead of Monday's night matchup against the Houston Texans.

The fifth-year back injured his shoulder in Indianapolis' Week 6 win over the Washington Redskins.

Addai had been on the way to his finest season since 2007. In six games, Addai has 93 carries for 406 yards (4.4 average) with three touchdowns.

Donald Brown, Addai's backup, practiced in full on Saturday and is listed as questionable. Brown has missed the past three games with a hamstring issue. The 4-2 Colts also have running back Mike Hart on their roster.

Fantasy Impact: 

Although Brown is questionable, the fact he put in a full practice is a good sign for his availability on Monday night. He's at 20 in our regular rankings and at 22 on our PPR board. We expect he'll get more work than Mike Hart and is worth a look if you have issues at running back.
