2013 Game Summaries
Week 15 - Ballard did an admirable job filling in for the injured Housler, catching all three passes thrown his way, including Palmer’s only touchdown throw. While not nearly the receiving threat Housler is, Ballard did provide quality blocking in both the run and pass game.
Week 17 - Ballard caught his second touchdown of the season Sunday, his lone reception of the day on a goal line play-action pass, and ended up tying Jim Dray with two touchdowns in the season, despite only joining the team midway through the year. Ballard blocked well for the most part, and stayed healthy all year, possibly his biggest achievement in 2013. A restricted FA, the Cardinals will likely bring Ballard back at least through training camp as they continue to search for a more dynamic option at the position.
