Donald Brown has been thrown into the starting running back role for the Indianapolis Colts after the slew of injuries at his position. 
The first long stretch of his career as the Colts' number one runner started slowly, but finally, in Week 15 against the Jacksonville Jaguars the shifty runner from UConn exploded for 129 yards on a mere 14 carries.
