Colts RB Donald Brown is active, but will not start.
The great, blonde information machine known as Phil Wilson of the Indianapolis Star has tweeted out that Donald Brown will play. However, Brown will not start. Rookie Vick Ballard will.

Jeff Linkbenbach is also expected to start at left guard over Joe Reitz, who is also active. Reitz was the starting left guard going into preseason, but he seems to have lost that job since sustaining a knee injury.
