Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw was also making his debut after having his 2013 season end after Week 3.
Bradshaw averaged 5.0 yards on his three carries and contributed 70 yards on five receptions out of the backfield against the Denver Broncos.
“I just want to increase my role and help the team out as much as I can,” Bradshaw said. “It felt great getting out there again trying to help the team.”
Bradshaw didn’t play like a player who was coming off neck surgery. He embraced taking hits instead of avoiding contact by going out of bounds if the opportunity presented itself. He'll have some PPR value for now but it will be interesting to see if his role increases.
