Saints signed RB Vick Ballard to a reserve/future contract.

Ballard has been out of football since getting released with an injury settlement by the Colts in September. It's a low-cost flier for the Saints. Ballard hasn't appeared in a game since 2013 and will need to prove he's healthy to make it to training camp.
Feb 3 - 5:46 PM

Free agent RB Vick Ballard worked out for the Bears on Tuesday.

Alonzo Harris, who was cut by the Packers after CurfewGate, also tried out on Tuesday. Ballard showed promise as a rookie in 2012 but injuries and ineffectiveness have limited him to just one game over the last three seasons. If the Bears sign him, he'll provide depth behind Matt Forte, Jeremy Langford and Ka'Deem Carey.

Colts released RB Vick Ballard with an injury settlement.

Ballard ended up spending one week on I.R. for the Colts. Now 25, injuries have limited the 2012 fifth-rounder to just one appearance since his rookie season. It's mind boggling he hung around as long as he did in Indianapolis. It could be a while before Ballard gets a second chance.

Colts waived/injured RB Vick Ballard.

Limited to one appearance since 2012 by ACL and Achilles' injuries, Ballard missed the vast majority of the summer with a hamstring issue. It was simply never going to happen for the 25-year-old back in Indianapolis. He'll be released off injured reserve with a settlement once he's deemed healthy, at least by his standards.

Vick Ballard (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 1.

Josh Robinson will be Frank Gore's top backup against the Bills.
Fri, Sep 11, 2015 01:39:00 PM

Colts RB Vick Ballard (hamstring) missed practice again on Thursday.

He is unlikely to play on Sunday. Rookie Josh Robinson will serve as Frank Gore's No. 2.
Thu, Sep 10, 2015 12:05:00 PM

Vick Ballard (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Ballard suffered a setback with his hamstring in the preseason finale. His status for Sunday’s game is in doubt. Josh Robinson will back up Frank Gore, with Tyler Varga likely serving as the No. 3 back.
Wed, Sep 9, 2015 04:31:00 PM

Colts RB Vick Ballard was forced from Thursday's preseason finale after aggravating his hamstring injury.

Ballard is simply never going to stay healthy at the NFL level. The fourth-year back should be waived/injured in the next 48 hours.
Thu, Sep 3, 2015 08:25:00 PM

Colts RB Vick Ballard is dealing with another hamstring injury.

Ballard suffered the injury on Thursday. It's "different" than the hamstring issue he dealt with earlier in camp. At this point, the injury-prone back is likely headed to injured reserve, and will eventually be released with a settlement.
Sun, Aug 30, 2015 12:24:00 AM

Colts RB Vick Ballard will not play in the team's third preseason game.

Sidelined for almost two years by ACL and Achilles injuries, Ballard got his first action of the preseason last week. It is unclear why he is being held out, but he may have suffered a setback. Already a longshot for a roster spot, missing this game probably seals Ballard's fate.
Sat, Aug 29, 2015 06:51:00 PM

Colts RB Vick Ballard rushed twice for four yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Bears.

It was the injury-prone Ballard's first appearance of any kind since Week 1, 2013. With the Colts' running back corps deeper than it's been in recent seasons, Ballard appears to be a 53-man roster long shot.
Sat, Aug 22, 2015 11:16:00 PM

Vick Ballard (hamstring) is expected to play in Saturday’s preseason game.

It’s Ballard's first appearance in almost two years after consecutive ACL and Achilles injuries. Ballard saw his most extensive action of training camp this week and should be close to 100 percent. He reportedly spelled Frank Gore with the first team. Ballard needs to prove he can stay healthy to secure a roster spot.

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells no longer projects Vick Ballard to make the 53-man roster.

Injuries have limited Ballard to one appearance since his rookie year of 2012, while he missed Sunday's preseason opener with a hamstring issue. Ballard is still only 25, but he hasn't given Indy much reason to keep him around. He's a nonentity in Dynasty leagues.

Vick Ballard missed his third straight practice with a hamstring injury.

Ballard is day to day, but the missed time is a concern coming off his 2014 torn Achilles. FOX 59’s Mike Chappell and ESPN’s Mike Wells both project Ballard to make the 53-man roster.
