Summary

After suffering a torn ACL to his knee in week one last year, Vick Ballard has once again been stung by the injury bug, this time a torn Achilles tendon. The injury occurred in one of the first practices of training camp this year, which will essentially end his 2014 season early yet again. Ahmad Bradshaw now cements himself as the primary backup to Trent Richardson as we head into the season. (July 29)

Colts | Vick Ballard tears Achilles' (Fri Jul 25, 07:08 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during practice Friday, July 25.

Our View: That's a brutal piece of news for Ballard who was coming back from an ACL injury. Ahmad Bradshaw moves up the chain a bit and will be the direct backup to Trent Richardson. T-Rich is an RB3 right now, and you can probably move Bradshaw up to RB5 with the possibility he could have a much larger role as camp and the season go on.

Colts | Vick Ballard carted off (Fri Jul 25, 02:38 PM) - Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (ankle) was carted off the practice field Friday, July 25, with what appeared to be an ankle injury.

Our View: This confirms earlier reports that Ballard's injury may be serious. Coming back from an ACL injury, Ballard was likely to see some carries in general and possibly a lot of Trent Richardson struggled to start the season. We'll monitor this but a significant injury could destroy any fantasy value he had.

Colts | Vick Ballard limps off the practice field (Fri Jul 25, 02:27 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (undisclosed) limped off the practice field Friday, July 25.

Our View: Other reports have said he was carted off the field after suffering the injury on a receiving route. Recovering from an ACL injury, an ankle problem would be a real blow to his comeback this year, and put more pressure on Trent Richardson. Keep an eye on this as a long term injury could improve the value of both Richardson (currently an RB3) and Ahmad Bradshaw (currently sitting as an RB6)

Colts | Vick Ballard passes physical (Wed Jul 23, 09:28 AM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (knee) reported to camp and has passed his physical.

Our View: Ballard is competing for a reserve role with the Colts this year. If healthy, he could win the team's third-string job behind Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw.
