Per @RapSheet, the #Colts waived-injured running back Vick Ballard. Guess he wasn't getting healthy fast enough. Too bad.

Per @RapSheet, the #Colts waived-injured running back Vick Ballard. Guess he wasn't getting healthy fast enough. Too bad.

I do feel bad for Vick from the perspective of he worked hard to be a valuable contributor to this club. Sorry man. However, I'm glad that Grigs isn't too emotionally attached to players either. No Bob Sanders syndrome. If health is a lingering problem, cut them loose, & don't get bogged down with potential, expectations, & brief flashes of brilliance. 

 

When it's time to move on, just do it. It had to be done even I know that.

With Vick Ballard waived, here's a running back to keep in mind: Ahmad Bradshaw. He's healthy acc to source and Colts have some interest

Well, they have this up at RotoWorld:

 

'The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts have "some interest" in free agent Ahmad Bradshaw.

Bradshaw's one-game suspension is up, and he's reportedly 100 percent healthy after breaking his leg last November. The Colts have wildly little depth behind aging starter Frank Gore, and Bradshaw was highly effective before going down last season. A reunion would make a lot of sense.'
 
Bradshaw is probably good for only 8 games...but might be worth having in the rotation.

I would have no problem picking up Bradshaw, that man is the appitamy of what a running back should be.

 

He's the "epitome" too. :P

 

On a non-spelling related note, I'm with you on that one.  Bradshaw is a great fit in the Colts' offense.  He is a weapon catching the ball out of the backfield and he runs hard north/south.

Can he go to the practice squad? 

 

Nvm, this was a dumb question. 

 

I'm not sure whether he's PS eligible. Those rules are pretty complicated anymore.

 

But we couldn't put him on our PS from IR or waive-injure status regardless. If he's PS eligible, he wouldn't be able to sign with our PS until six weeks after the length of the injury settlement. 

 

I'm really surprised he's not a Cardinal. I guess with Ellington inactive for a bit, they don't have the roster space either.

    • What? I stopped watching. So my 5 team parlay still alive? Lol
    • I wouldn't go as far as saying I'm not worried about Kenny, cause I've seen some bad play from him. But I'm not overly concerned about it. Part of the issue is also that Kenny has been playing CB (not NB) sometimes (when Rock was out, and some when Rock returned in base D). Not sure if that is a perm thing, or just something we're doing until Rock is back to 100%. We should have those answers after the bye.    Either way, there's enough to think they will both be fine once Rock is back to 100%, and Kenny is back to playing only NB. If Kenny can get back to doing what he does best, and Rock returns to his form from the second half of 2019 (he graded out top 10 CB), the DBs could be formidable with Rhodes playing the way he is playing.
    • They should follow the former Redskins team lead and also change their names to: The Dallas Football team The Philly Football Team The NY Football team The Washington Football team.   But I'm not sure the term " football team" accurately describes them, lol.
    • The Colts have the worst you in the NFL, so that style prolly ain’t gonna work.
