INDIANAPOLIS - In one week, the Colts running back situation went from solid to chaotic.

Injuries knocked out two running backs against the Titans, which came during a game which Donald Brown on the sidelines.

Now the team has placed Brown along with running back Robert Hughes on Injured Reserve and have signed Mewelde Moore and Deji Karim to fill in the gaps at the position.

An ankle injury ends Brown's season, one in which he played in ten games and rushed for 417 yards and a touchdown with an average of 3.9 yards a carry. Brown was the Colts first round draft pick in 2009 and has dealt with injuries often in his three-year career.

Hughes-who injured his knee against Tennessee-got on the active roster in early November and had just one carry for five yards along with work on special teams.

Moore returns to the Colts after being let go on October 29th. He saw limited action behind Brown and Ballard, rushing just nine times for 14 yards in six games. His highlight of the season came against the Jaguars in Week 3, when he caught a touchdown pass just before halftime.
