RB Zurlon Tipton was added to the roster in a corresponding move.

Ahmad Bradshaw left Week 12 against the Bucs with a wrist injury.

Bradshaw suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter. He's been ruled out for the rest of the game. Bradshaw was held to 26 yards on seven touches before exiting.
Nov 29 - 4:16 PM

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed nine times for 32 yards and caught 4-of-4 targets for 20 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' Week 11 win over the Falcons.

Bradshaw accounted for both of Matt Hasselbeck's passing scores on a day where the Colts managed three TDs as a team. The third came on a pick six by ILB D'Qwell Jackson. Frank Gore (quad) was spotted limping heavily on the sideline late in the game, and Bradshaw closed out the action as the Colts' feature back. Bradshaw will be one of fantasy's top waiver adds ahead of Week 12.
Nov 22 - 5:53 PM

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed six times for three yards and caught an eight-yard touchdown Week 9 against the Broncos.

Bradshaw continues to see a decent amount of snaps, but he is playing well behind starter Frank Gore. Bradshaw's touchdown came against a heavy Denver blitz inside the 10-yard line. Bradshaw got behind the blitzers, made the grab and leaped over a defensive back into the end zone. Despite the score, Bradshaw is nothing more than a Frank Gore handcuff moving forward.
Nov 8 - 8:01 PM

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed seven times for 31 yards in the Colts' Week 8 loss to the Panthers on Monday night.

He failed to reel in his lone pass-game target. Bradshaw saw good action late in the fourth quarter with the Colts in catch-up mode, but he's mainly in there for his blocking prowess. Bradshaw won't be fantasy-relevant unless Frank Gore suffers an injury that causes him to miss time.
Nov 3 - 12:53 AM

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed once in Indy's Week 7 loss to the Saints, adding an eight-yard reception.

The Colts weren't interested in running on a day where they fell behind early. Bradshaw should eventually have a nice role as a pass catcher, but the path to 12-team league value isn't there right now.
Oct 25 - 6:41 PM

Ahmad Bradshaw was limited to four carries for eight yards and one catch for eight yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Patriots.

Bradshaw got some work on the opening series, but wasn't a factor behind Frank Gore. His role will expand as he becomes more acclimated, but Bradshaw doesn't have standalone value. Josh Robinson was a healthy scratch this week, so Bradshaw is locked in as Gore’s handcuff.
Oct 19 - 12:49 AM

Ahmad Bradshaw is active for Week 6 against the Patriots.

Bradshaw should have a pass-down role behind Frank Gore after signing earlier this week. With Bradshaw active, Josh Robinson is a healthy scratch.
Oct 18 - 7:15 PM

Colts OC Pep Hamilton expects Ahmad Bradshaw to be "tossed into the offensive mix" if he's active Sunday against the Patriots.

Bradshaw knows the Colts' offense, and will get a handful of touches if he suits up. Bradshaw should catch a decent amount of passes, but won't have any standalone value behind Frank Gore.
Oct 15 - 3:04 PM

Colts re-signed RB Ahmad Bradshaw to a one-year contract.

Now healthy after his broken leg last November and with his one-game suspension behind him, Bradshaw is ready to contribute. With the Colts dumping Dan Herron before the season, losing Vick Ballard to yet another injury, and rookie Josh Robinson showing serious ball-security issues, the Colts needed depth behind veteran Frank Gore. 29-year-old Bradshaw should help in the pass game.
Oct 14 - 2:25 PM

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.
Sep 15 - 6:26 PM

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.
Sep 6 - 4:57 PM

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.
Jun 23 - 12:26 PM

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.
