Colts bench Richardson in favor of Donald Brown
Colts running back Trent Richardson has lost his starting spot

Indy (7-4) will be without cornerbacks Greg Toler and Josh
Gordy, who both have groin injuries. The Colts’ other inactives are
linebackers Kavell Conner and Cam Johnson, offensive lineman Khaled
Holmes, defensive lineman Montori Hughes and tight end Weslye
The Titans (5-6) will be without starting tight end Craig
Stevens (concussion) and backup receiver Damian Williams (hip).
Tennessee also put linebacker Zac Diles, defensive tackle Mike
Martin, quarterback John Skelton and offensive linemen Kevin
Matthews and Byron Stingily on the inactive list.
