Former Colts RB Ahmed Bradshaw suspended one game


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2015) Free agent running back Ahmed Bradshaw will be suspended one game, once he signs with a team.

The NFL confirmed on Monday that Bradshaw violated the league's Policy and Program on Substances of Abuse.

Bradshaw was released by the Colts in the offseason. He was arrested on marijuana charges following a February 5 traffic stop and pleaded no contest in May. 

Bradshaw scored seven touchdowns in 10 games before suffering a season-ending injury last year. 


Free-agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw pleads no contest to pot charge


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/11/2015) Running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who was released by the Colts after the 2014 season, pleaded no contest and paid a fine Monday in an Ohio court to a charge of misdemeanor marijuana possession, per the Associated Press

Bradshaw played last two seasons for the Indianapolis Colts. He scored eight touchdowns with 725 total yards in 10 games in 2014 before suffering a season-ending fractured fibula. 

The charges arose from a Feb. 5 traffic stop in which the officer smelled "the strong odor of raw marijuana." NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the case will be reviewed "under our policies." Any potential punishment would depend on his status in the league's drug program.

Bradshaw was charged with a misdemeanor count of possession of a small amount of marijuana following a traffic stop in Preble County, Ohio on Feb. 5. A pretrial hearing is scheduled for Feb. 25.

Bradshaw, an impending free agent, had a productive season with the Colts cut short because of a fractured fibula. He ran for 425 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 4.7 yards per carry, and caught 38 passes for 300 yards and six scores in 2014.

Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw out of his cast


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/20/2015) Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw, whose season ended after 10 games due to a fractured fibula, is out of his cast and into a walking boot, reports ESPN.com. The impending free agent plans to start working out soon and hopes to re-sign with Indy for 2015.

Bradshaw ran for 425 yards and two touchdowns, averaging 4.7 yards per carry, and caught 38 passes for 300 yards and six scores.


Ahmad Bradshaw hoping to return to Colts in 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2015) Running back Ahmad Bradshaw told reporters Monday he is hoping to be back with the Colts in 2015, according to colts.com.

Bradshaw was forced to the injured reserve with a fractured fibula after playing 10 games in 2014. He had 90 carries for 425 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. He also had 38 catches for 300 yards and six touchdowns receiving. Bradshaw's 2013 season was also cut short after suffering a neck injury in Week 4.


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 | Senior Analyst
(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.
