Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during practice Friday, July 25.
Fantasy Tip: Ballard likely will miss the entire season because of the injury. Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw probably will get a majority of the reps at the position unless the team adds another back. Richardson should be considered a starting running back in all fantasy leagues, while Bradshaw probably would be a later-round pick that could be a No. 4 or 5 running back on a team.

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (knee) reported to camp and has passed his physical.
Sat, 12 Jul 2014 09:15:31 -0700
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson will need to produce right away in the running game if he wants to keep the starting job, because the team will not wait for him to turn things around if RB Ahmad Bradshaw or Vick Ballard are playing well.
Fantasy Tip: Richardson is getting the first chance to start, but he could find himself on the bench if he fails to produce. Richardson should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back in drafts this season. Owners could consider taking a late-round flier on Bradshaw or Ballard since there is a chance they could take over the starting job if Richardson falters, but it is not known which back would have more value at this point.
Mon, 30 Jun 2014 13:20:08 -0700
Indianapolis Colts RB Trent Richardson will be given the first shot at starting running back. He is more talented than RBs Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard, and the Colts don't want to show that their trade for him last September was a failure.
Fantasy Tip: Due to Richardson's poor 2013 season, he stands to reward nicely as an RB2. Bradshaw and Ballard are late-round fliers.
Mon, 16 Jun 2014 12:03:41 -0700
Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (knee) is not expected to be a part of the team's minicamp, according to a source, as he continues to recover from ACL surgery.
Fantasy Tip: Ballard is currently listed as the No. 2 running back behind Trent Richardson. Richardson will probably see most of the playing time, but all three are expected to see the field. Still, Ballard is coming off a serious knee injury and has Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw to compete with. He's a flex option at best for now.
Mon, 05 May 2014 11:12:47 -0700
Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (knee) recently said he wants to be the team's H-back.
Fantasy Tip: Prior to the Trent Richardson acquisition, Ballard was the starting running back in 2012 before tearing his ACL in Week 2. The Coltsí backfield is currently in a murky state, although Richardson will likely be given the first opportunity to start.
