#TBT: Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard Goes Matrix to Score Game Winning Touchdown

A couple years ago it looked like the Indianapolis Colts may have found a potential play maker at running back in the form of Vick Ballard. However, injuries have kept him from the field and the team had no choice, but to look elsewhere for help.

Please Stop Talking about Vick Ballard

I like Vick Ballard. He seems like a nice guy, a player who will commit to the franchise, work hard and contribute to the community. Those kind of guys are valuable.

Ballard was coming off of an ACL tear that forced him to miss nearly the entire 2014 season, so this is really terrible news for the young running back.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that Colts RB Vick Ballard suffered a torn Achilles tendon during Friday’s practice.

Vick Ballard: Where he fits in

Let’s rewind to early in the 2013 season in which Vick Ballard missed most of the season with injury. The Colts were in dire straits to fill the void of a downhill running back who can pass protect when needed. The Colts knew that Donald Brown wasn’t the greatest pass protector and had been an underachiever in years past. Newly acquired Ahmad Bradshaw helped bolster the Colts...
