Is Ballard injured? Haven't seen him out there the bit I've watched games recently

Favorite Buckeye: Obviously BJ Mullens

Yes - he was injured his knee against ATL, I think. Nothing major, but regardless -- he has been a pleasant surpise this year. Suprisingly, he was not a Big 33 Game participant, btw.
