Don't count out Vick Ballard in Colts' backfield competition


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) All signs point to Colts running back Vick Ballard being ready for training camp, reports ESPN.com. Ballard tore his ACL in Week 2 last season, making a cut in practice.

The website says Ballard won't necessarily be the No. 3 back behind Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw, noting Richardson flopped last year and Bradshaw (neck) needs to prove he can stay healthy.

Ballard ran for 814 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie in 2012.


Pagano breaks down Colts' backfield


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/25/2014) Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that he's looking forward to the competition at running back between Trent Richardson, Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard .

"It’s going to be great competition, I know that," Pagano said. "Certainly with Trent, Ahmad and Vick coming back. It’s a good problem that we have. It’s going to create great competition at the position."

Pagano said the health for Bradshaw (neck) and Ballard (ACL) will determine their usage early on this season. Both finished last year on injured reserve.

"We know what Trent is capable of doing," Pagano said. "Trent is going to be so much better in our second season with us. Just having an offseason, knowing the offense and feeling more comfortable and knowing the pieces around him and having chemistry with our offensive line. There’s going to be great competition there. You have to have one guy you call your bell cow, who is going to get the lion's share of the snaps. We have a lot of options there. It's good to have multiple backs."

Pagano said bringing back Bradshaw was a no-brainer.

"You watched him play," Pagano said. "The guy is a warrior, he's a fierce, fierce competitor and I knew once he got the diagnosis, knew what he had to go through from a rehab standpoint that there was no question once the doctor said you're going to be fine he'd come back. That's in his DNA. He doesn't know anything else. He doesn't want to do anything else."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2013) Ahmad Bradshaw played his finest game in his short time with the Colts on Sunday when he rushed for 95 yards and a touchdown against a tough San Francisco defense. But he might not have a chance to take his momentum and run with it if he doesn't recover quickly from a neck injury.

Bradshaw was absent for the second straight practice Thursday with the ailment. It remains to be seen, however, how he will share the workload with newly acquired Trent Richardson if he can play Sunday at Jacksonville.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Colts to share reps between running backs


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2013) Colts coach Chuck Pagano said he prefers to share reps at running back between Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw. He said he will then go with the running back that gets the hot hand during a game.

"They just want to win," Pagano said about dividing carries between the two running backs.


Ahmad Bradshaw likely to factor still


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/24/2013) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who led the way with 19 carries for 95 yards as the team eased new acquisition Trent Richardson into the lineup Week 3 at San Francisco, will continue to work in tandem with Richardson Week 4 at Jacksonville, according to the Indianapolis Star.

"We’ve got a one-two punch and we used it," Bradshaw said after Sunday's win. "It's going to be tough for a lot of opponents this year."

Nobody knows yet just how the workload will shake out once Richardson gets acclimated on offense -- he played 28 plays to Bradshaw's 30 in Week 1 -- but against the defense that ranks dead last against the run, allowing 167.7 yards per game and 5.2 yards per carry, both should make the most of whatever they're given.

Coming off his best performance of the season, Bradshaw looks like a player you can trust in Fantasy, at least for the time being. Dave Richard is a little more skeptical of his workload, ranking him 31st among running backs this week, but Jamey Eisenberg and Nathan Zegura both have him in their top 24.


Ahmad Bradshaw determined not to lose job


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2013) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw ran Sunday like a man who did not want to lose his job to Trent Richardson. Bradshaw ripped off 95 yards rushing on 19 carries and caught three of his four targets for 16 yards.

Bradshaw capped his terrific day with a 1-yard touchdown run in the game's final minute. He got six more carries than Richardson, who was acquired last week presumably to be the primary ballcarrier. 

Bradshaw was shaken up during the game but returned and finished strong. He visits the Jaguars in Week 4.
