Ballard has missed just about all of the previous two seasons due to injuries. He tore his Achilles before the 2014 season and was unable to play. When training camp comes around, it will mark almost a year from when he sustained the injury.
He said he should be good to go for the start of camp, though.
“Yeah, definitely man,” Ballard said. “Training camp is a long time from now, so truth be told, I probably could participate now, but there’s no rush. Just trying to take my time with it.”
Ballard led the Colts in rushing as a rookie in 2012 with 814 yards and two touchdowns. He only played in one game in 2013 before tearing his ACL in a practice the following week. His Achilles tear came during the 2014 preseason.
"Hopefully sooner," Grigson said.
Cherilus underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in January.
Johnson, 33, joined the Colts this offseason after 12 campaigns in Houston, where he recorded 1,012 receptions, 13,597 yards and 64 touchdowns to become one of the NFL's elite receivers.
Freeman is a restricted free agent and still hasn't signed his offer from the team, per the Indy Star. The Colts offered a one-year $2.35 million deal that would require a second-round pick as compensation from any team that signs Freeman.
Freeman has until Friday to get an offer from another team. The Colts workouts are voluntary, so there will be no penalty for Freeman missing them.

Johnson was surprisingly released by Houston, but revenge was not part of his game plan.
"(Leaving the Texans) hasn't even really set in," he told the Houston Chronicle. "I was just talking about that with someone (Thursday). Everybody thinks that I went to the Colts to try and get back at the Texans and stuff like that. That had nothing to do with it. I just went to the ... place where I felt was the best fit for me and where I can have a chance to win a championship.
"It wasn't about circling (game) dates or nothing against the Texans. I had 12 great years here. Been around some great people, built some great relationships, a lot of great friends. Houston's always going to be my home."
Johnson remained productive in 2014, but his yards-per-catch average declined to 11.0, its lowest since 2005.
