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.

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."

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.

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 50 yards on seven carries in the Colts' Week 9 beatdown of the Giants on Monday night.

He added 29 yards on three catches. The Colts were extremely pass-happy, but Bradshaw more than made his presence felt despite the meager box score numbers. He's elite in blitz pickup and stoned a couple pass rushers, allowing Andrew Luck to make throws in the face of pressure. We're just lucky to have Bradshaw healthy heading into the Colts' Week 10 bye. Continue to ride him as an every-week RB2 with RB1 upside.

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed six times for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 8 loss to the Steelers, adding seven receptions for an additional 52 yards.

Bradshaw got the official "start" with Trent Richardson (hamstring) only available in an emergency capacity, but the Colts still did their best to limit his touches. It was a typical day at the 2014 office for Bradshaw, who kept plays going with his ferocity and relentless feet. This was especially true on his 12-yard touchdown run, where he bounced off defenders on a wildly impressive second effort. With half the season now in the books, the resurgent veteran is on pace for 1,270 yards from scrimmage and 16 touchdowns. He's an every-week RB2 with RB1 upside.

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed 10 times for 52 yards with a touchdown and caught three passes for 36 yards with another touchdown in Sunday's Week 7 win over the Bengals.

Bradshaw lost a red-zone fumble early on, but there was no punishment. He was right back in there as the primary red-zone back after that, punching a goal-line carry in and later using his violent YAC skills after a catch for his sixth receiving score of the year. Perhaps most importantly for Bradshaw's outlook, Trent Richardson went down with a hamstring injury in the second half. The Colts will want to be careful with their veteran back, but he's going to be extremely productive even at 15 touches per game.

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed 11 times for 34 yards in Indy's Week 6 win over the Texans, adding three catches for 25 yards and a touchdown.

As usual, Bradshaw out-produced Trent Richardson, managing 59 yards on 14 touches to T-Rich's 41 on 17. Both players had trouble finding room against the Texans' J.J. Watt-anchored front seven, but Bradshaw ripped off a couple Sproles-ian Houdini acts to keep drives moving in a tense second half. The receiving score was Bradshaw's fifth through six games. This, after he entered 2014 with three career scores through the air. Bradshaw will be an every-week RB2 for as long as he can stay healthy.

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 68 yards on 15 carries in the Colts' Week 5 win over the Ravens.

He caught 4-of-5 targets for 17 yards. Bradshaw continues to run circles around Trent Richardson, and out-touched his backfield mate 19-13 in this one. Bradshaw couldn't convert a fourth-and-one earlier in the game and fumbled at the Ravens' 11-yard line late while the Colts were leading 20-13 with 1:49 left in the game. Bradshaw will continue to see the touchdown opportunities and is an RB2. The Colts travel to Houston on Thursday night.

Colts OC Pep Hamilton says he has no set rotation at running back.

Hamilton considers both Ahmad Bradshaw and Trent Richardson every-down players. Richardson has out-touched Bradshaw 72-48, but out-gained him just 325-316. Considering Bradshaw's injury history, however, it's right approach for a Colts team that can't afford to lose Bradshaw for any amount of time. T-Rich has also taken a slight step forward from his dismal 2013. Emphasis on slight. Bradshaw is an RB2, with T-Rich being a high-floor FLEX.

Ahmad Bradshaw did not practice Wednesday.

Bradshaw was in a walking boot after Sunday's game, but the Colts are holding him out for rest purposes. He should return to at least a limited practice Thursday. Bradshaw will be an RB2/FLEX option in Week 5 against the Ravens.
Wed, Oct 1, 2014 03:09:00 PM

Ahmad Bradshaw left the stadium Sunday with a walking boot on his left foot as a precaution.

It's nothing to really worry about, but remember that Bradshaw's feet and ankles have been incredibly troublesome throughout his career. It's a big reason why Trent Richardson will continue to be involved plenty. Expect Bradshaw to be limited a bit in practice this week before suiting up against the Ravens.
