The Colts returned to the practice field on Friday afternoon after their first off day of training camp.
If anyone could use the rest, it was running back Vick Ballard, who remains day to day with a hamstring injury. The team pulled Ballard out of practice on Tuesday after his hamstring tightened up.
It’s been a rough couple of years for the back who tore his ACL in 2013 and his Achilles’ tendon in 2014.
“When it happened, I knew it wasn’t anything major because I’ve pulled my hamstring before and it was nothing like that,” said Ballard.
While the Colts and Ballard want to be patient with the injury, it’s important for him to get out there in order for the Colts to evaluate him.
“They’re going to make that decision. I’ve got to do what’s best for me and let the chips fall where they fall,” said Ballard.
