The Indianapolis Colts are hopeful but concerned regarding the immediate and long-term status of Ahmad Bradshaw, according to a team source.
Ideally, the neck injury suffered by the veteran running back at San Francisco Sept. 22 will heal on its own with treatment and rest. However, the source added there is a level of concern that surgery might be required, which would bring into question Bradshaw’s status for the remainder of the season.
This would seem to boost Trent Richardson's long-term outlook. If Bradshaw misses extended time, Donald Brown would serve as the primary backup to T-Rich.
