It was his missed block that led to Miami's sack of Andrew Luck on the final offensive play of the Colts' only loss of the season four weeks ago. Fans at that time were incredulous Bradshaw hadn't been in the backfield for such a crucial play.
Now many of those same fans are clamoring for Brown to take away a portion of Richardson's carries.
In the locker room Sunday, the fifth-year veteran told reporters he's happy with his role in this offense. He's a change-of-pace back, while Richardson does the heavy lifting.
As for that euphoric spike after his 3-yard run put Indianapolis ahead against the Seahawks?
"It's just exciting to get in the end zone," Brown said. "Offensive line did a great job. It's not easy scoring touchdowns in the National Football League. So you're obviously grateful when you get in."
In large part because of Brown's class and character, these days the Colts have plenty for which to be grateful.
