Summary

Ahmad Bradshaw is expected to be the Colts secondary option at running back in 2014 behind incumbent back Trent Richardson. The camp injury to Vick Ballard (Achilles) solidifies that role heading into the season. Gone is Donald Brown who has moved on to San Diego in the off season, thus opening the role to Bradshaw, who is entering his eighth year in the league. A neck injury and subsequent surgery, shortened his season last year after just three games. In addition to his neck injury, he has a long list of other ailments that has plagued him throughout his career which could limit his production. His grit, tenacity and toughness is what drives him and ultimately makes him a power, when he is healthy. Prior to joining the Colts, Bradshaw had three consecutive Top 20 finishes, which shows that he is a capable fantasy commodity. Bradshaw has several positives, with one big negative - there is always the threat of injury lurking around the corner. Perhaps being used as a backup to Trent Richardson will keep him fresh and healthy throughout the year. (July 29)

Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw looking good (Tue Jul 29, 01:13 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw has been consistent so far in camp, and he's not showing any limitations with his neck, which caused him to miss the final 13 games of last season. 'He looks fantastic,' head coach Chuck Pagano said. 'He has found the groove to make it. We know how tough Ahmad is. We know how he's wired, so I'm not going to be pulling back on the reins. He's one of those guys we have to protect them from themselves. It will take care of itself. He's not one of those guys that will think about what he went through.'

Our View: Bradshaw is looking good while camp reports seem to indicate that Trent Richardson is struggling a bit. The Colts would like Richardson to be "the man" in 2014 with Bradshaw as a change-of-pace back. We'll see if Bradshaw can carve out a larger role this year than some people think.

Colts | Vick Ballard tears Achilles' (Fri Jul 25, 07:08 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Vick Ballard (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during practice Friday, July 25.

Our View: That's a brutal piece of news for Ballard who was coming back from an ACL injury. Ahmad Bradshaw moves up the chain a bit and will be the direct backup to Trent Richardson. T-Rich is an RB3 right now, and you can probably move Bradshaw up to RB5 with the possibility he could have a much larger role as camp and the season go on.

Colts | Ahmad Bradshaw cleared (Thu Jul 24, 08:29 AM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw (neck) has been cleared to practice.

Our View: Bradshaw outplayed Trent Richardson before being sidelined last year, and some believe he can do it again this year. His draft stock is very low and Bradshaw will only cost you a pick in the very late rounds this year. He might even go undrafted. If Richardson stumbles out of the gate, Bradshaw could have surprising value, but Vick Ballard is also back and he might have something to say about that.
