Report: Colts’ RB Vick Ballard Carted Off Field From Training Camp
Less than 11 months after Indianapolis Colts’ running back Vick Ballard tore his ACL, he finds himself with an injured left ankle at the start of training camp. This kid just can’t catch a break.
Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star reported that Ballard couldn’t even put any weight on his foot.

Anytime you exit practice or a game on a cart, that is not a good sign. We’ll have to watch as news develops on Ballard’s injury, however, the thought or Trent Richardson leading the team as running back, frightens me. If Ballard has to miss any extended period of time, Richardson will really have to step up his game to live up to his pricey trade.
