Vick Ballard (hamstring) misses Thursday's practice

Indianapolis Colts running back Vick Ballard (hamstring) missed Thursday's practice.

What It Means:

Ballard is unlikely to play Sunday, and rookie Josh Robinson is expected to backup Frank Gore in the Colts' backfield.

The Colts ranked 27th in our schedule-adjusted Rushing Net Expected Points metric last season. Our algorithms project Ballard to finish the year with 172 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 12 receptions, and 87 receiving yards. He is currently off the fantasy radar.
