Ballard went down with the injury at training camp Friday, and had to be carted off the field. He likely will not see the field again this season, as this has the potential to be a season-ending injury.
Ballard suffered a season-ending ACL injury last season, after appearing in just one game.
In addition to Trent Richardson missing practice on Friday, the
Richardson is coming back from a chipped collarbone and a separated AC joint in his shoulder he played with last season.
It is believed to be a left ankle injury, and he wasn't putting any weight on the ankle before leaving. Ballard is coming back from last year's torn ACL.
"Toward the end of the season I felt a lot more comfortable, but the other time I was more injured," said Richardson, who had offseason shoulder surgery.
Coach Chuck Pagano said Richardson not only is healthier, but has a much better grasp of the playbook this year.
"He’s a lot more comfortable," Pagano said. "Basically it was survival for him at first, memorization. Now he has a better understanding scheme-wise, why we’re doing things, why we’re calling certain things, how we run plays. He has a better feel for guys he’s playing with, the line, guy in front of him, the fullback. He’s obviously in a much better place."
