Just when the Colts running back group was filled with proven contributors, the unit suffered a major blow Sunday.
Ahmad Bradshaw’s fourth-quarter wrist injury has sent the veteran running back to injured reserve for a third straight season.
Bradshaw played in six games this season for the Colts, once again establishing himself as a major red-zone weapon. He caught three touchdown passes in six games, while also serving as the team’s backup to Frank Gore, primarily as the team’s third-down back. Dan Herron could now seize that role. The Colts claimed Herron off waivers on Thanksgiving and he played in the final three offensive snaps of Sunday's game (all kneel downs). Herron also played 10 special teams snaps in his 2015 debut with Indy.
