The Indianapolis Colts will start Donald Brown at running back on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

Acquired by the Colts in mid-September the former first round pick has struggled to find consistency or yards behind the offensive line in Indianapolis.

Richardson was averaging just 2.8 YPC and was being outplayed by Donald Brown who was getting 5.7 YPC. With the playoffs getting closer Colts coach Chuck Pagano can no longer afford to drop lines of support for Richadson and allow him to start.
