That goal got a whole lot tougher on Friday.
Starting running back Vick Ballard suffered a freak knee injury at Thursday’s practice, a person informed of the injury told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
Colts owner Jim Irsay confirmed the injury on Friday, and tweeted that Ballard is headed for injured reserve. Shortly after Irsay’s confirmation, coach Chuck Pagano told reporters that Ballard suffered an ACL tear on a non-contact play, per Colts.com reporter Kevin Bowen.
