Colts in wait-and-see mode with Ahmad Bradshaw


Ahmad Bradshaw won't play for the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. How much longer he'll miss beyond that remains unclear.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday, via a team source, that the Colts' current plan for Bradshaw is to rest the neck in order to relieve the stiffness and discomfort. The team doesn't have a timetable beyond Sunday. Essentially, it's wait-and-see mode with the veteran, though the situation doesn't appear serious at this time.

Trent Richardson, acquired in that bold trade last week, will be Indianapolis' primary ball-carrier against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano hasn't provided specifics about Bradshaw's injury, only saying the running back suffered a "significant blow" during Sunday's win over the San Francisco 49ers. Bradshaw had 111 total yards and a touchdown in the game.

Given Bradshaw's injury history, it makes sense to take a more conservative route. If you can do that with one of the NFL's have-nots up next on the schedule, even better.
