Updating a previous report, Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (knee) will miss the rest of the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in practice Thursday, Sept. 12. He will undergo season-ending surgery and has already been put on Injured Reserve. Ballard was injured in a non-contact drill Thursday. RB Ahmad Bradshaw will now take the lead running back duties, with RB Donald Brown sharing touches.

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (knee) will miss the remainder of the season after injuring his knee in practice Thursday, Sept. 12.
Fantasy Tip: This quickens the pace at which Ahmad Bradshaw will get back to a starter's workload. He hasn't looked 100 percent yet, but he's their most capable every-down back. He's a low-end RB2 in most leagues. Unfortunately, Donald Brown will probably steal reps for his occasional big-play ability. He's nothing more than a desperation flex play, however. Also, Indy will probably ink a third carrier that can at least spell these two, perhaps in goal-line spots.

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 12.
Tue, 10 Sep 2013 15:34:12 -0700
Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano was happy with RB Vick Ballard's pass protection in Week 1 against the Oakland Raiders. Ballard was 6-for-6 in pass-blocking situations last weekend.
Sun, 08 Sep 2013 13:37:28 -0700
Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard had 13 carries for 63 yards in Week 1, while RB Ahmad Bradshaw rushed seven times for 26 yards.
Fantasy Tip: This is still a very fluid situation, but Bradshaw should have the most long-term value.
Fri, 06 Sep 2013 12:47:19 -0700
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 6, and is listed as probable for Week 1.
Fantasy Tip: Bradshaw has been dealing with this foot injury for a while but has been able to play with it. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy running back this week but likely will give up some playing time to Vick Ballard and Donald Brown during the game.
Mon, 02 Sep 2013 05:42:46 -0700
Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) is expected to get the lion's share of the workload in the backfield with RBs Donald Brown and Vick Ballard. "I think he's in a really good place mentally," head coach Chuck Pagano said. "I know physically, he's real close to getting back and hopefully we'll increase his snaps this week and hopefully he's ready for this game."
Fantasy Tip: Bradshaw is a decent RB3, while the other two are mere handcuffs right now.

Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton is expected to use a running-back-by-committee approach this season with RBs Ahmad Bradshaw, Vick Ballard and Donald Brown getting plenty of work.
Fantasy Tip: Running back committees are not the best thing for fantasy owners, but it looks like the Colts are going that route. Bradshaw likely is the most valuable out of the three and should be seen as a No. 3 running back or flex option. Ballard should be a No. 4 or No. 5 running back on fantasy teams while Brown probably should not be taken in drafts.
Tue, 23 Jul 2013 15:48:36 -0700
The Indianapolis Colts placed RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) on the Physically Unable to Perform list for training camp Tuesday, July 23.
Fantasy Tip: Bradshaw should be ready for the start of the regular season if he doesn't have any setbacks during camp. However, he'll play second fiddle to Vick Ballard this year and is unlikely to see enough touches to make him anything more than an RB4 or 5.
