Colts' Dan Herron turns in average game
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Colts running back Dan Herron turned in an average game on Sunday against the Patriots.

Herron didn't perform poorly, but didn't have a lot of opportunities to get going. He gained 51 yards on 10 carries, averaging 5.1 yards per attempt. With New England taking a big lead fairly early in the game, Indianapolis got away from the run game. Herron wasn't much of a threat in the passing game, coming down with two receptions for 11 yards.

Colts' Trent Richardson doesn't travel with team, out for Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Colts running back Trent Richardson did not make the trip with the team to New England due to personal reasons and will not play in Sunday's AFC Championship game, the team announced Saturday. Richardson also missed the divisional round of the playoffs and received zero carries in the wild card round.

Richardson reportedly missed walkthroughs Saturday and did not notify the team for his reason, according to the Indianapolis Star.

Dan Herron and Zurlon Tipton will continue to carry the load for the Colts Sunday. Indianapolis is currently a 6 1/2-point underdog against the Patriots.

Chuck Pagano: RB Dan Herron is a 'tough, tough, tough kid'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

In two playoff games, unheralded running back Dan Herron has 119 rushing yards, 117 receiving yards on 18 catches, and two touchdowns. Colts coach Chuck Pagano trusted Herron with 31 touches in the playoff win at Denver.

"To see him go out and play through – that's a darn good defense we went against and they tackle well – and he took some shots like a lot of guys took in that game," Pagano told the Indianapolis Star after the win over the Broncos. "He's a tough, tough, tough kid."

A sixth-round pick and twice-waived former practice squad player, Herron was just hoping to make the team last August. Now he's entrenched as the starter heading into Sunday's AFC Championship Game at New England. Herron did not touch the ball in the Week 11 meeting with the Patriots, a 42-20 loss, as the Colts rushed for 19 yards on 16 carries.

Herron will be a big part of the offense Sunday. The Colts are 6.5-point underdogs.

"When the opportunity comes," Herron said, "you just have to really seize it and really take advantage of it."
