Dose of Donald: Brown Among Highlights of Indianapolis Colts Preseason Opener

The Colts CornerContributor IAugust 15, 2009

The Good

Donald Brown, the Colts first round pick, was amazing Friday night. Brown carried the ball only five times but he still managed to pick up 58 yards rushing. On Brown's third run of the night, he bounced off of three defenders for a 38-yard run.


The Bad


The Vikings rushed for 198 rushing yards on 41 carries. Chester Taylor, the Vikings back up running back, had a 72-yard run in the first quarter. But, the Colts were without safeties Bob Sanders and Antoine Bethea


The Ugly


Peyton Manning was sacked three times, with starting left tackle Ryan Diem and right tackle Charlie Johnson out with injuries the Colts struggled to contain the Vikings pass rush. And that was just in one series.
