Colts HC Chuck Pagano announced on Monday that RB Ahmad Bradshaw suffered a fractured fibula in Sunday night’s loss to the Patriots, putting his 2014 season in jeopardy
“He’s been seen by our doctors, our specialists and he’s going to see a couple more. I’ll have more information in the coming days,” Pagano said on Monday afternoon.
“It kills you because he’s a warrior. He loves football. He loves his teammates. He loves the (Horseshoe). He loves competing….We are going to miss his energy, his passion, everything he brings to the table.”
The Colts are still getting more opinions on Bradshaw. With a lot of football left to play, any hope of Bradshaw returning would keep him off IR, especially for the NFL playoffs. But for the fantasy football season, it's not looking good for owners. Starting running back Trent Richardson will continue to see the brunt of the backfield workload with Dan Herron sidling into the “Next Man Up” role, the story said.
