The Facts: Ballard, who tore his ACL in practice during Week 2 of the season, is close to a 100 percent. He rushed for 814 yards as a rookie and is taking the questions about how effective he can be with Ahmad Bradshaw and Trent Richardson on the roster. "I understand the situation, but I was the starter before I got hurt,” Ballard said.
Diehards Line: The Colts traded for Richardson after Ballard was hurt. "I would have done the same thing if I was the GM," Ballard said. "It's a business and at the end of the day, I understand what they did, but I want to be the halfback. ...” Of course, all three backs have question marks that will remain until they prove doubters wrong. Ballard is coming off the torn ACL. Bradshaw is coming off neck surgery. And Richardson was a disappointment last season. And as ESPN.com's Mike Wells notes, the Colts are a long way from naming one of them a starter. They all have to prove they've overcome their previous obstacles. It's a situation fantasy football owners will want to watch closely. Anything seems possible.
