Colts | Dan Herron, Vick Ballard injured

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 17:08:25 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Dan Herron (shoulder) and RB Vick Ballard (hamstring) suffered injuries in the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3, and will not return to the game.

Fantasy Tip: Herron and Ballard are candidates for backup jobs with Herron believed to be the top candidate for the No. 2 running back job. Owners should look for updates in the next day or two to see if they are dealing with serious injuries. Herron could be a late-round option in deeper leagues, while Ballard does not have much value.

Colts | Vick Ballard doing individual work

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 21:19:34 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') has resumed doing individual field work and he is shooting for Aug. 1 to return to football-related activities. He has yet to be medically cleared.

Fantasy Tip: Ballard is making his way back from an ugly knee injury. When he does return he’ll find a backfield which consists of Frank Gore, Boom Herron and Zurlon Tipton, among others. It will take Ballard a while to work his way into a meaningful role again, so fantasy owners can avoid drafting him for now.

Colts | Vick Ballard able to do some things

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 06:51:13 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') has been able to participate in some individual drills this offseason. Ballard has not received medical clearance at this point but believes he can return to the field by August 1.

Fantasy Tip: Ballard likely will compete for the No. 2 running back job if he is healthy during training camp. He has played only one game over the last two seasons, so he could take his time in his recovery. Ballard likely will not see a lot of playing time if he is healthy this season since the team added Frank Gore. Ballard probably should not be more than a late-round option in deeper leagues.

Colts | Vick Ballard making progress

Sun, 05 Apr 2015 08:53:37 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') is doing well in his rehab from a torn Achilles' tendon but there is no timetable for his return to the field, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. Ballard is expected to compete with RB Dan Herron for the No. 2 running back job if he is healthy.

Fantasy Tip: Ballard missed the entire 2014 season because of the injury and may sit out some of the offseason workouts. Ballard and Herron likely will compete for the backup job during training camp and the preseason. Owners should consider the winner of the competition as a later-round draft choice.
