Report: Vick Ballard suffers torn Achilles in training camp
by Chris Towers |

Colts running back Vick Ballard has been diagnosed with a torn Achilles, reports Friday.

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.

Trent Richardson had chipped collarbone, separated AC joint
by Larry Hartstein |

Colts running back Trent Richardson revealed Thursday that he played last season with a chipped collarbone and a separated AC joint, reports The AC joint is where the collarbone meets the shoulder.

"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."
