Maybe surgeries get so much better by then they actually make you stronger?

YOU DON'T KNOW! Laughing

Damn thats horrible. With him gone that leaves the oft-injured Bradshaw and then Richardson left to carry the load

Buccaneers and 49ers fans thinking they'll get a first rounder for a RB. Not in this day and age.

/sarcasm

Never underestimate Ryan Grig... oh. Yeah, I'm late to the party, stallyns. Wink

I wouldn't be shocked to see Fozzy Whitaker get a call at least for camp. He was a Chud favorite, it seemed, in Cleveland. And could still push for a spot on the team in the ST department. Free agent wire is a little scarce at the moment, even for RB's: Decrepit Ronnie Brown, Bernard Scott, Felix Jones, Mike Goodson, Michael Bush, Kahlil Bell, Tashard Choice. Maybe they give guys like Ray Graham or Jawann Jamison another shot to make a roster, but both are more zone/one-cut runners, whereas the Colts appear intent on angling for a power-running game.

Of course i hate to see a player get injured but for the long term this is a good thing. Ballard is a mediocre football player better that he doesn't fluke out a decent season and give us an excuse to not address the worst RB situation in the NFL next offseason

oof. If it's a complete rupture he could be done. Mikel Leshoure tore his and hasn't been the same since, a complete rupture would be even worse.


Nobody can come back 100% from an achilles tear.
You hope you can get to 90% or around it and try for the best. But nobody, especially not a RB, is ever the same.
.


You're right even though im not a nfl athlete I had multple tears and a calcium definciency in it and I had alot of work done surgically speaking, and im not the same

But good luck to him and a quick recovery
