Dan Herron has been Colts' best running back
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Trent Richardson is averaging 2.6 yards per carry in the preseason, and Ahmad Bradshaw made his preseason debut Saturday with three carries for 2 yards. Would the Colts turn to Dan Herron?

Herron has run for 104 yards on 18 preseason carries (5.7 ypc), including a 43-yard jaunt Saturday against the Saints. Most of those yards have come against backups, but coach Chuck Pagano said he's not discounting Herron.

"I don't look at it that way," Pagano told ESPN.com. "I just know 'Boom' has had a really good camp and a good preseason. He's made some nice runs. It's comforting knowing that you have a guy that not only excels on special teams, but you've got another guy in the backfield that can run and get yards for you when you need them."

A third-year back out of Ohio State, Herron entered camp as a long shot to make the roster. Now he's third on the depth chart and rising fast. "It's a great opportunity right now for me," said Herron, who also returns kickoffs. "I come here every day like it's my first day and the coaches know nothing about me. I try to work as hard as I can and just try to showcase what I can."

Reserve back Dan Herron features as a receiver
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Colts have been impressed with the way running back Dan Herron has played during training camp, and he kept that up in the team's preseason opener against the Jets Thursday.

Herron served as the team's primary backup, and saw plenty of action as the first team saw little of the field. He rushed the ball seven times for 26 yards, and was a factor in the passing game, hauling in all six passes thrown his way for 36 yards, including a 12-yard touchdown that accounted for the team's lone trip to the end zone.

"Boom's been practicing really well. He's had a great camp until this first preseason game so I'm not surprised at all that he played the way that he played," head coach Chuck Pagano told the team's official site. "We always talk about you play like you practice, and he's been doing great. He's been having a great camp and you could see the results tonight in what he did on the football field."

The Colts are expected to utilize their running backs more in the passing game this season, so Herron's big role there doesn't come as much as a surprise. He is likely to enter the season as the No. 3 back, behind Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw.

Colts backup running backs do nothing against Cardinals
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Colts running backs Donald Brown and Dan Herron did little against the Cardinals Week 12.

Herron actually led the club in rushing yards, picking up 33 yards on four carries. Brown received two rushes, picking up just 1 yard. He also caught a pass for -2 yards. The team was down big early, and could not focus on establishing the run. As a result, all three of their running backs struggled to get things going. 

Brown and Herron will take on the Titans Week 13.
