Free agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw is visiting the Colts on Monday.
The Colts have no reliable options behind Frank Gore, and Bradshaw was having a great season with Indy last year before breaking his leg in November. This move makes too much sense not to happen. If Bradshaw is signed, Frank Gore's already small involvement in the passing game should be reduced even further. Oct 5 - 11:52 AM

The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts have "some interest" in free agent Ahmad Bradshaw.

Bradshaw's one-game suspension is up, and he's reportedly 100 percent healthy after breaking his leg last November. The Colts have wildly little depth behind aging starter Frank Gore, and Bradshaw was highly effective before going down last season. A reunion would make a lot of sense.

Free agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw's fractured leg is "completely healed."

Bradshaw is suspended for Week 1 after pleading no contest to misdemeanor marijuana possession in May, however. If Bradshaw is going to get signed, it probably won't happen until after the opener, when vested veterans get their base salaries guaranteed. We would guess that Bradshaw does land with a team at some point. He is injury riddled, but still effective at age 29.

The player rep for suspended free agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw says his client has been medically cleared for football activities.

Bradshaw fractured his fibula in mid-November of last year. He was formally suspended one game on Tuesday after pleading no contest to misdemeanor marijuana possession last month. Bradshaw was an elite passing-game back on the Colts last year. This is just our two cents, but if Bradshaw is indeed ready to go, he would make a ton of sense as the passing back in New England.

NFL suspended free agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw one game for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Bradshaw was busted for marijuana possession back in February. Like LeGarrette Blount, Bradshaw is banned for the season opener. Bradshaw has drawn zero known interest as a free agent. He's 29 and coming off yet another injury -- a fractured fibula suffered in Week 11. Bradshaw had success in Indianapolis, but the Colts' offense is extremely running back-friendly due to soft defensive fronts. The Colts have shown no desire to re-sign Bradshaw.

Free agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge in Ohio.

Bradshaw paid $351 in fines and court costs, and had his Ohio driving privileges suspended for six months. In reality, it's not a big deal. But in the eyes of the NFL, this guilty plea could have ramifications. Bradshaw, 29, is currently seeking work after his 2014 season was ended by a Week 11 broken leg.
May 11 - 11:51 AM

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells said it is "highly unlikely" Indianapolis re-signs free agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw.

Still recovering from a broken leg suffered Week 11 last season, Bradshaw has not drawn any free agent interest. Bradshaw has been a dynamic back when healthy throughout his career, but the when healthy part has always been the problem. Bradshaw has only played 16 games once in his career, and has not accomplished the feat since 2010. He is unquestionably a talented runner, but already 29 and with an injury history a mile long, Bradshaw will struggle to find guaranteed money this offseason.
Apr 11 - 9:32 AM

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells doesn't expect free agent Ahmad Bradshaw to return.

Bradshaw hasn't drawn any free agent interest coming off an injury-shortened 2014. He's also dealt with off-field issues since the season ended, and could struggle for guaranteed money. Bradshaw was one of the better pass-catching backs in the league when healthy last year, finishing with a 4.72 YPC, 38 catches and eight touchdowns in 10 games. The Colts are expected to move forward with Vick Ballard and Dan Herron behind Frank Gore.

WDTN in Ohio reports free agent Ahmad Bradshaw was charged with marijuana possession last week.

Bradshaw was pulled over during a traffic stop outside of Dayton, Ohio. The passenger in his car is being charged with two counts of drug possession. Entering his age-29 season and coming off injury, Bradshaw will now be subject to the personal conduct policy. His court date is scheduled for February 17. This is an obvious concern for Bradshaw's free agent stock.
Feb 13 - 6:07 PM

Free agent Ahmad Bradshaw (fractured fibula) is still in a walking boot.

Bradshaw broke his leg in Week 11, an injury that crippled the Colts' running game. He hopes to ditch the boot and resume working out soon as he gets set for free agency in March. Bradshaw proved he has plenty left in the tank in 2014, racking up a 4.72 YPC average, 38 catches and eight total touchdowns in 10 games. But now he's entering his age-29 season with even more injury issues than before. Teams know about Bradshaw's seemingly chronic foot/ankle woes.
Jan 20 - 9:17 AM

Colts placed Ahmad Bradshaw on injured reserve with a broken leg, ending his season.

There will be no miracle return for the playoffs. It remains unclear just how serious Bradshaw's leg break is, but any leg issue is a major concern for a player with Bradshaw's history of foot issues. For now, he should be considered questionable for Week 1 2015. Going on 29, Bradshaw is set to become a free agent. He proved this season that he still has plenty left in the tank, but his injury history is going to limit his options on the open market. It's not outside the realm of possibility that Bradshaw decides his body has had enough, and retires. The Colts' running game is going to go in the tank without Bradshaw. Trent Richardson remains amongst the league's least-effective runners.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano revealed Monday that Ahmad Bradshaw's injury is a fractured fibula.

It sounds like a potential compound fracture of both Bradshaw's fibula and his ankle, which is a really bad injury for pro athletes and could threaten Bradshaw's availability for 2015 training camp. Per Pagano, Bradshaw is going to "see a couple more specialists." He's almost certainly I.R.-bound.

Sources tell ESPN's Adam Schefter that initial indications are Ahmad Bradshaw broke his ankle in Sunday night's loss to the Patriots.

It's a crippling blow to a Super Bowl contender because even if surgery isn't needed, a bone fracture typically takes at least 4-6 weeks to heal. Bradshaw, who has a long and ugly history of foot/ankle injuries, was a key cog in the Colts' explosive offense this season, leading the team in rushing yards (425) and YPC (4.72) while also catching six touchdowns. They'll have to give struggling Trent Richardson, already averaging 15.2 touches per game, even more work. Dan "Boom" Herron will step into the No. 2 role and is worth an add in 12-team formats.

Ahmad Bradshaw was on crutches and in a protective boot following Sunday night's loss to the Patriots.

Bradshaw will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of his left leg injury, but this has potential to be a serious setback. His status should be updated no later than Monday. RTV6's Mike Chappell expects Bradshaw to miss "extended time."
Mon, Nov 17, 2014 02:35:00 AM

Ahmad Bradshaw was forced from Sunday night's Week 11 game against the Patriots with a lower leg injury.

He's done for the night. Bradshaw was shaken up after failing to convert on two straight goal-line carries in the fourth quarter. He had just 11 total yards before being taken out. Bradshaw will undergo x-rays to determine the severity, but it's a concern given his injury history. Trent Richardson would see an increased workload if Bradshaw misses time, with Dan Herron taking over as the No. 2 back.
