Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano said RB Vick Ballard (knee) is making progress in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and should be ready to participate no later than training camp.

Huddle Up: The Colts are apparently banking on Ballard being a part of their backfield picture, along with Trent Richardson. Tough to trust him fantasy-wise if we aren't able to see him on the field, so a training camp--or earlier--return would be welcome news.

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard will miss the remainder of the season after injuring his knee in practice Thursday, Sept. 12.

Huddle Up: Ballard's injury frees up Ahmad Bradshaw for more carries, with Donald Brown as the backup. Look for Indy to hit the waiver wire to add backfield depth, as neither Bradshaw nor Brown are renown for their durability.

Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Sept. 12.

Huddle Up: This hasn't sounded like anything that will keep Ballard from playing or starting Sunday, but it could lead to more touches for No. 2 back Ahmad Bradshaw, who had eight in Week 1.

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."

Huddle Up: Translating the coach-speak, Ballard will be the every-down back and Brown will be the change-of-pace guy. Brown has flashed some ability in that role, and limiting his touches should help him stay on the field for a full season. Ballard has yet to prove he can deliver a full season of feature-back duties, but right now he's in line for that opportunity and should be ranked as such on fantasy draft boards.
