Colts bench Richardson in favor of Donald Brown

Colts running back Trent Richardson has lost his starting spot

to Donald Brown.

Brown has outplayed Richardson over the past few weeks, though

the two backs have been rotating frequently during games, which is

expected to continue Sunday against Tennessee. The Colts traded a

first-round pick to the Browns in September for Richardson.

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

Saunders.

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.
