Colts waive/injured RB Vick Ballard (Mega Merge)

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.

    • Of course the perfect quarterback specimen is 6'5" 230 lbs with a laser rocket arm  
    • Brees is listed as 6 foot which is tiny for a QB of his pedigree. Murray and Flutie are listed at 5'8". That is A LOT shorter than 6'.   I know their heights are probably all probably exaggerated, but all things being equal...
    • He has his flaws but I support him. He is a great leader and I can tell players like him.
