NFL Betting: Colts’ Ballard out for season with torn ACL
By Andrew Scott Friday, 20 September 2013 01:25
NFL betting fans were very concerned when they found out that on Friday, coach Chuck Pagano said that Indianapolis Colts running back Vick Ballard will receive surgery on a torn ACL in his right knee, ending his season. Colts owner Jim Irsay sent a tweet saying that Ballard was put on injured reserve.
Pay per head sportsbooks learned that Ballard, who led the Colts in rushing last season as a rookie, suffered the injury in a non-contact drill during practice on Thursday. Pagano and the players said that the injury was “freakish.”
“Nobody touched him,” running back Ahmad Bradshaw said. “Everybody saw it. They just gasped. He was going through the hole on a team drill. He was trying to weave through the line. His foot got caught in the ground and it happened.”
This accident appeared to be a very disturbing one indeed, and NFL betting fans are still in a state of disbelief over what happened.
NFL betting fans and price per head services saw Ballard pace Indianapolis with 63 rushing yards in a 21-17 season-opening win last Sunday over the Oakland Raiders.
“We all know Vick was headed toward having a fabulous year,” Pagano said. “We know and understand injuries are part of this game. We’ll deal with it. Nobody handles adversity quite like this team in this locker room. Vick will get through this, and with his mindset and his work ethic he’ll come back stronger than ever in 2014.”
The Colts planned to team Bradshaw with Ballard, who signed with the Colts in the offseason, giving the offense a running duo to complement the tight end and receiving end groups.

Now NFL betting fans can see that Bradshaw will get the whole load – he was out the entire preseason while recovering from foot surgery during the offseason – as well as Donald Brown. Football betting fans saw that in the opener, Bradshaw had seven rushes for 26 yards; Brown, who is currently in his fifth season, did not get a carry against the Raiders. On Sunday, Indianapolis will host the Miami Dolphins (1-0), and pay per head sportsbooks can’t wait to see what will happen when this game gets underway.
