Colts officially place RB Ahmad Bradshaw on season-ending IR


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) The Colts officially placed running back Ahmad Bradshaw on the season-ending injured reserve list Tuesday with a fractured fibula, per the team's official website. Bradshaw was injured Sunday against New England.

Bradshaw was in the midst of a bounce-back season, one year removed from a season-ending neck injury. His season ends with 700 yards of total offense. He rushed for 425 yards and two touchdowns on 90 carries and caught 38 passes for 300 yards and six touchdowns in 10 games. He is expected to be a free agent at the end of the season.


Pagano: Bradshaw meeting with specialists about fractured fibula


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Colts coach Chuck Pagano announced Monday running back Ahmad Bradshaw suffered a fractured fibula Sunday against the Patriots. He is going to see more specialists to reveal "the extent of that fracture," Pagano said.

Pagano said he isn't sure if the veteran running back will land on injured reserve.

Bradshaw is averaging 4.7 yards per carry, which is his highest average since 2009 (4.8 ypc). He also has eight touchdowns (six receiving) and needs just 15 more receiving yards to set a career high. He has 300 receiving yards on 38 catches.


Report: Colts' Bradshaw suffered broken ankle during Week 11 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw appears to have suffered a broken ankle during Sunday's loss against the Patriots, according to multiple reports.

Bradshaw suffered the injury in the fourth quarter Week 11 and was taken for X-rays. Coach Chuck Pagano said after the game the veteran running back will undergo an MRI, according to The Indianapolis Star.

"To see a brother go down, especially a guy I'm around all day, every day. … that's real tough," starting running back Trent Richardson said. "It's heartbreaking to see a guy like that go down."

Aside from the ankle injury, Bradshaw is enjoying a productive season. He is averaging 4.7 yards per carry, which is his highest average since 2009 (4.8 ypc). He also has eight touchdowns (six receiving) and needs just 15 more receiving yards to set a career high. He has 300 receiving yards on 38 catches.


Colts' Ahmad Bradshaw, Dwayne Allen in protective boots Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw and tight end Dwayne Allen were both seen in protective boots after Sunday's 42-20 loss to the Patriots.

The Colts didn't provide an update on either player, but the sense is that Bradshaw, who was also on crutches Sunday night, will miss extended time. Both players will go through tests Monday to determine the severity of their injuries. The Colts are set to face the Jaguars in Week 12.


Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (leg) will not return Week 11


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday night's Week 11 matchup with the Patriots.

Bradshaw was taken to the back for X-rays in the second half and soon after ruled out with a lower leg injury. He finishes the day with four yards on seven carries and four catches for seven yards. The Colts have a matchup with the Jaguars on tap for Week 12.


Ahmad Bradshaw heads to locker room for X-rays on ankle


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw was taken to the locker room to have X-rays taken on his left ankle, the team announced.

Bradshaw managed just 11 yards on 11 touches before coming out with the injury, rushing for four yards on seven carres and catching four passes for seven yards. The team will likely have an update on his potential to return to Sunday's game after the tests are finished.


Ahmad Bradshaw, Trent Richardson both effective on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Colts running backs Ahmad Bradshaw and Trent Richardson both looked sharp in Monday's easy win over the Giants. Bradshaw ran seven times for 50 yards (7.1 ypc), while Richardson carried seven times for 33 yards (4.7 ypc) after not playing Week 8 due to a hamstring injury.

As expected, Bradshaw got more opportunities a receiver. He caught three of five targets for 29 yards against his former team. Richardson secured both his targets for 9 yards.

Neither scored a touchdown despite Indy putting up 40 points. Bradshaw and Richardson are on a bye Week 10.


Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw limited Sunday on ground


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The absence of Trent Richardson due to injury set up Colts backfield mate Ahmad Bradshaw for a big game on the ground Sunday in Pittsburgh. But the team fell behind to stay early, giving Bradshaw few opportunities.

Bradshaw did gain 35 yards on just six carries, though one of the rushes was a 12-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter in which he was stopped dead up the middle before racing around left end. Bradshaw did take advantage of a prolific passing game with seven catches on seven targets for 52 yards.

He and the Colts will try to bounce back on next Monday at home against the Giants.


RB Bradshaw in, Richardson out as Sunday starter for Colts


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been given the nod as the starter for the Colts against the Steelers on Sunday despite the active status of Trent Richardson.

It has been speculated that Richardson (hamstring) is active only due to the lack of available backs and that he will play sparingly, if at all.


Ahmad Bradshaw more attractive than usual?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both really like Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw for Week 8 at Pittsburgh, ranking him among their top 12 at the position. And based strictly on performance, you can understand why. Bradshaw had his second two-touchdown game Week 7 against Cincinnati and has at least one touchdown in five of seven games this season.

But because he's the slightly lesser half (in terms of playing time) of a backfield platoon with Trent Richardson, I always worry about his lack of touches. He's been the sixth-best running back in standard CBSSports.com leagues to date, so maybe those worries are unfounded. But what can I say? I'm a worrier.

I'm fully on board with him this week, though. It's not so much about the matchup, though the Steelers rank only 17th against the run, allowing 114.1 yards per game. It's more about Richardson's health. On his way to a season-best 118 yards from scrimmage, Richardson also hurt his hamstring in Week 7. And though he was expected back at practice Thursday, it's not so unreasonable to think he'll be the lesser half of the platoon even if he's cleared to play in Week 8.

And more touches can only be a good thing for Bradshaw, right?


Time share not hurting either of Colts' backs


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) As unlikely as it seems, the Colts have found a way to keep both Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw productive, as both topped double figures in Fantasy scoring yet again in Week 7 against the Bengals.

Both players have managed to reach double figures in Fantasy scoring in three of the last four games, and the duo has combined for nine touchdowns; seven have come from Bradshaw. The Colts are unafraid to run the ball or throw it to either player, and they have combined for 214 touches in seven games.

Most of the time, the running back by committee is harmful for Fantasy purposes, but both players in Indianapolis have been able to carve out their roles while remaining productive. Bradshaw is the better player here, but both should remain solid options heading into Week 8 against the Steelers. 


Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw scores as runner, receiver Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw destroyed the visiting Bengals on the ground and through the air Sunday.

Bradshaw, who took over as the featured back when Trent Richardson left due to injury, rushed for 52 yards on 10 carries, including a one-yard scoring plunge three minutes into the second quarter. He also racked up his sixth receiving touchdown of the season, a 10-yarder early in the fourth. He snagged all three passes thrown his way for 36 yards.

The afternoon did not start out so bright for Bradshaw, who fumbled near the end zone in the first quarter.

Bradshaw and his Colts play at Pittsburgh next Sunday.


Ahmad Bradshaw does it again


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/10/2014) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw was again a solid Fantasy option in Week 6 at Houston. He had 11 carries for 34 yards and three catches for 25 yards and a touchdown.

Bradshaw has now scored five receiving touchdowns, and he's reached double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league four times. He's had at least eight points in five games, but can he keep this up?

I still consider Bradshaw a sell-high candidate, mostly because of injury concern. He's clearly the better running back in Indianapolis -- Fantasy or real life -- ahead of Trent Richardson, but you might want to get something great in return for Bradshaw if possible.

He has a history of foot problems, and last year he suffered a season-ending neck injury early in the year. After Week 4, he left the stadium in a walking boot as a precaution for his foot.

You also have to be concerned if he can keep giving you the production you need as a receiver. When the Colts get near the goal line, Richardson is still the running back of choice.

Now, I'm not saying trade Bradshaw just to trade him. While he's healthy, he clearly has the chance to be productive, and he helped me as a start in this week's Start 'Em and Sit' Em.

But if someone offers you something great in return for Bradshaw, you might consider making a deal. At some point, he could get hurt based on his track record, although we hope that doesn't happen to him this year.


Colts' Ahmad Bradshaw scores fifth receiving touchdown


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw scored his fifth receiving touchdown of the season in a Week 6 victory over the Texans in Houston on Thursday.

Bradshaw caught a short pass from Andrew Luck and waltzed his way into the end zone from 5 yards out in the opening quarter. He compiled 59 yards of total offense, rushing for 34 yards on 11 attempts (3.1 yards per carry) and hauling three of the six passes thrown his way for 25 yards and a score in a 33-28 victory.

Bradshaw leads all running backs with five receiving touchdowns and is behind only Randall Cobb and Julius Thomas for most touchdown receptions this season. He has rushed for 284 yards on the ground and has registered 176 receiving yards through six games.

The Colts will host the Bengals in Week 7.


Enthusiasm for Ahmad Bradshaw warranted?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/8/2014) With a season-high 15 carries for 68 yards (along with four catches for 17) Week 5 against the Ravens, Ahmad Bradshaw seemingly became the Colts' preferred backfield option over Trent Richardson.

But he had been trending the opposite way. He played only about one-third of the team's snaps in Week 4, getting less than a dozen touches for the third time in four games.

Statistically speaking, Bradshaw is easily the superior back of the two, but the Colts seem to think Richardson is better suited for a starter's workload. And given Bradshaw's injury history and 28 years of age, they wouldn't be entirely off base.

To me, the distribution of workload is still enough for me to avoid Bradshaw if I had another serviceable running back on my roster, as in one I could trust to score more than the five points Bradshaw did in standard CBSSports.com leagues last week.

The Texans, who the Colts visit in Week 6, are indeed vulnerable against the run, ranking 25th, which is probably why Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard are so high on Bradsahaw this week, but doesn't that also give the Colts more incentive to lean on Richardson if they jump out to an early lead, as expected? I could see it going either way.


Colts' Ahmad Bradshaw racks up 85 yards of total offense


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw racked up 85 yards of total offense in his team's 20-13 home victory over the Ravens in Week 5.

Bradshaw became more of the focal point in the rushing attack receiving 15 carries. His running mate, Trent Richardson, only took nine carries in the win. Bradshaw rushed for a team-high 68 yards, averaging 4.5 yards per carry. He also caught four of five targets for 17 yards. He has 49 carries for 250 yards on the season.

The Colts will face the Texans in Week 5.


Ahmad Bradshaw sees larger role for Colts in Week 5


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw reversed a troubling trend in Week 5 against the Ravens, as he was more involved in the offense than his backfield mate Trent Richardson in the win.

Richardson, who had 63 carries to Bradshaw's 40 over the team's previous three contests, took a backseat to Bradshaw. Bradshaw had 19 touches Sunday, including a season-high 15 carries, while Richardson's nine touches were his lowest total since Week 1.

Bradshaw has been the better back on a per-touch basis, but the team had been force-feeding Richardson over the last few weeks. It remains to be seen if this is a permanent change moving forward, but it should make Bradshaw's owners happy to see, at the very least. 


Reggie Wayne, Ahmad Bradshaw among Colts players active Week 5


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The following players on the injury report were ruled active for the Colts in Week 5 at home against Baltimore: Reggie Wayne (not injury related), Erik Walden (not injury related), D'Qwell Jackson (not injury related), Ahmad Bradshaw (not injury related), Colt Anderson (groin), Jerrell Freeman (hamstring) and Andy Studebaker (hamstring).

Time to shy away from Ahmad Bradshaw?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/1/2014) Fantasy owners who had been relying on Ahmad Bradshaw since his two-touchdown effort against the Eagles in Week 2 lucked out when he found the end zone on a 15-yard pass from Andrew Luck in the fourth quarter Week 4 against the Titans. He hadn't played much of a role up to that point, finishing the game with just 11 touches.

Looking back, even when he seemed like such a find those first two weeks, he wasn't getting all that many touches. His value was largely a function of him playing a bigger-than-expected role in the passing game, but he has just two catches in each of his last two games.

Bottom line: I'm getting nervous about using Bradshaw in Fantasy. He played only 36 percent of the Colts' snaps in Week 4, down from about 60 percent the first two weeks. The Colts seem content with the plodding Trent Richardson carrying the load, using Bradshaw as just a change-of-pace guy.

Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard still like him for Week 5 at Baltimore, ranking him among their top 20 running backs, but I think his luck finally runs out. The Ravens rank seventh against the run, allowing 82.5 yards per game, and have given up the seventh-fewest Fantasy points to running backs this season.


Colts still getting both backs involved


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) The Colts are just going to keep giving Trent Richardson the ball. We just have to accept it.

He racked up another 20 carries in Week 4 against the Titans, despite rushing for just 47 yards. He made up for the typically mediocre running performance with his first rushing touchdown of the season, along with 52 yards through the air.

Of course, his understudy continues to lose playing time as Richardson's role grows, though Ahmad Bradshaw has remained Fantasy relevant in spite of that. He caught another touchdown Sunday, his fourth in three games, despite carrying the ball just nine times yet again.

The good news is, both players seem to have very defined roles in the offense at this point. Richardson is the workhorse, whether he deserves to be or not, while Bradshaw remains a force in the passing game. The Ravens have done a solid job against running backs this season, but both Bradshaw and Richardson should be considered decent options for Week 5's matchup. 


Ahmad Bradshaw scores in third straight game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw used a fourth-quarter touchdown to extend his scoring streak to three games during a 41-17 win Week 4 vs. Tennessee.

Bradshaw hauled in a 15-yard touchdown catch with 9:56 remaining to record the final points of the game. It was Bradshaw's fourth receiving touchdown this season.

He finished with 32 rushing yards on nine carries and two catches for 20 yards. The Colts are back in action Week 5 vs. Baltimore.


Colts veterans get the day off Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne and running back Ahmad Bradshaw received a day off Wednesday.

It was a veteran's day off, and neither player is dealing with an injury at the moment. The Colts should have both guys back Thursday. 


Trent Richardson's playing time eclipses Ahmad Bradshaw's


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) For the first time all season, Trent Richardson saw the field more than Ahmad Bradshaw in Week 3 against the Jaguars, according to StampedeBlue.com, a Colts blog.

Richardson has shown signs of life over the last few games, and the team rewarded him with 38 of the team's 74 offensive plays. Bradshaw, on the other hand, was limited to just 25 snaps, despite averaging more yards per rush and reception. Entering Week 3, Bradshaw had played 29 more snaps than Richardson through the first two games.

The Colts are heavily invested in Richardson finding his way, and if Sunday's game is any reflection, the team is starting to reflect that in the workload. Keep an eye on this moving forward, Fantasy owners.  


Ahmad Bradshaw leads the way again Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw led the way for the team Week 3.

Bradshaw only received nine carries, but managed to lead the team with 65 rushing yards. He averaged 7.2 yards per attempt. Bradshaw was once again effective through the air, hauling in two passes for 18 yards and a score. Trent Richardson had an alright day on the ground, but was once again overshadowed by Bradshaw. 

Bradshaw will look for more Week 4 against the Titans.


Ahmad Bradshaw the best option in Indy


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) The Colts should just make it official and put Ahmad Bradshaw ahead of Trent Richardson on the depth chart.

He's been better than Richardson for two games and that's not likely to change as long as Bradshaw is healthy. He was solid in Week 1 at Denver with three carries for 15 yards and five catches for 70 yards, and he followed that up with 13 carries for 70 yards and five catches for 26 yards and two touchdowns against the Eagles.

Both running backs should do well against the Jaguars, who have already allowed four touchdowns to running backs in two games against the Eagles and Redskins.

But if you have to decide between Bradshaw and Richardson, the choice is easy. We just wish the Colts would realize it as well.
