Chris Ballard, general manager of the Indianapolis Colts, voiced his displeasure with the current Jonathan Taylor circumstance. The Colts tried their best, but they were unable to trade the running back by their own deadline of Tuesday.

Taylor is consequently put on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list and will be out for at least the first four games of the season. Chris Ballard expressed his thoughts, expressing the team’s dissatisfaction with the outcome.

“I’m not going to sit here and give you some rosy picture, like, ‘Oh, everything’s okay,'” Ballard said in a statement. It’s terrible for the Colts. For Jonathan Taylor, it’s terrible. And it’s awful for our supporters. It simply does. We must overcome it because that is where we are right now.

Chris Ballard: Who is he?

The general manager of the Indianapolis Colts in the National Football League (NFL), Christopher R. Ballard is a well-known American football executive. Before working as the Director of Football Operations for the Colts, Ballard was with the Kansas City Chiefs. He also worked as a scout for the Chicago Bears and held coaching positions at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

In the midst of the 2016 NFL Playoffs, Chris Ballard took over as the Indianapolis Colts’ new general manager. He reportedly was drawn to the general manager position in Indianapolis by the city’s ownership and the team’s illustrious past. As soon as he assumed leadership, Ballard began a thorough team makeover with a focus on the defense. As part of this restructuring, four starters from the previous season were fired.

In Ballard’s first season in that role, the Colts had a losing record. Before his second season, the team made the decision to part ways with Head Coach Chuck Pagano. Despite the Colts’ assertion that they had signed Josh McDaniels, the offensive coordinator for the New England Patriots, he unexpectedly withdrew from the agreement in principle.

After returning to the Indianapolis Colts in August 2021, Chris Ballard inked a sizable five-year contract with the team.
