Indianapolis Colts Find an Andrew Luck-aided Running Game
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indianapolis Colts accomplished their goal last week - improve their running game. Now they want to keep it going.
The Colts ran for a season-high 148 yards in a 17-13 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, led mostly by two rookies - Vick Ballard and Andrew Luck.
Ballard got an opportunity with running back Donald Brown out for the second straight week with an injured knee. On 20 carries, Ballard ran for 84 yards, giving interim head coach Bruce Arians a little more confidence in the running game.
Luck says the amount of confidence he has in the running game doesn't change, but he's happy that Ballard is getting some recognition for his game.
The Colts (3-3) play at Tennessee (3-4) on Sunday.
