Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has never been shy about letting people know when he has plans in store for the team and he has recently hinted that the team could go out and trade for a running back after the injury to Vick Ballard that cost him the season.
Irsay sent out his latest message on Twitter:
We’re all hurting for Vick BaL..Bradshaw,Brown and others must step up…Grig’s gonna work hard to wheel n deal B4 trade deadline,let’s roll

There is one interesting possibility that Irsay could make a play for — Houston Texans running back Arian Foster. The problem is that teams generally don’t trade within the division, so it would be a longshot. Houston could look at trade options because of Ben Tate being a star in his own right, but would they worry about Foster hurting them down the line?
The most likely move would be for a middle of the road running back, but anything will help the team moving forward with their weak running back depth.
