Until you get in there and you take on a double team and put that foot in the ground and take on all that weight on that knee, I think from a mental and physical standpoint he's in a great place."

It's not an easy thing for anybody, let alone Trent who came in with all the hype that comes from being the third overall pick. He won't make any excuses. And we won't make any excuses for him. But reality is reality. It's not an easy thing."

Colts | Vick Ballard favored as starting back

Wed, 15 May 2013 10:24:31 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard is expected to enter training camp as the team's No. 1 running back, but that doesn't mean RB Donald Brown will not also see playing time. Head coach Chuck Pagano sees Ballard as a player who gets stronger as the game wears on, while Brown is considered more of a home run hitter for the offense.

"Can Vick be an every-down guy? Yeah. Can Donnie be an every-down guy? Yeah. They are different types of runners and are more than capable on third down, knowing the protections and picking up blitzers and being effective once they get out to catch the football and doing those things out of the backfield," Pagano said. "Vick is a solid, solid guy; Donnie is a home run hitter," Pagano said. "If he gets the edge and hits a crease, he can take it the distance."

Fantasy Tip: Ballard should be viewed as a third fantasy running back who could have slightly more value in PPR leagues. Brown is a handcuff pick and likely nothing more than a sixth back in deep leagues.
