Brown has surgery; Ballard to start
Although the healing time isn't likely to be significant, Brown is likely to miss two to three weeks. Brown, who is coming off a performance in which he produced his season-high in rushing yards (84) against the Packers, will be replaced by rookie Vick Ballard.
Ballard, a stocky runner from Mississippi State, was taken in the fifth round of this year’s draft and will make the first start of his young career.
