Vick Ballard rushed 22 times for 91 yards and added one reception for three yards at Baltimore in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.

Ballard was stopped for a gain of two yards or less on nine of his carries in an inconsistent ground attack. The Colts never got close enough to the end zone for a goal-line opportunity. A workhorse back down the stretch, the fifth-rounder from Mississippi State finished the season as fantasy's No. 27 back. While Ballard is the favorite to enter next season as the starter, the Colts may bring in stiffer competition at the position.
