Bradshaw underwent an X-ray on his injured wrist after Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, and while it showed no fractures, the area is very swollen, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. Bradshaw was knocked out of the game due to the ailment, finishing with four carries for six yards and three catches on four targets for 20 receiving yards. The Colts' rushing game was shut down by the Bucs, as starter Frank Gore could only get 24 yards on 19 carries. If Bradshaw has to miss any time, Dan Herron will likely take over the backup role.
Bradshaw carried the ball nine times for 32 yards, and added four receptions on four targets for 20 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in Atlanta. Bradshaw's modest yardage total isn't surprising due to his lack of touches, but he's making the most of his limited time on the field. The ninth-year running back is firmly behind Frank Gore on the Colts depth chart, but that hasn't stopped him from picking up three receiving scores over the past two weeks. Still, expecting Bradshaw to continue to find pay dirt with regularity is a stretch.
Bradshaw had six carries for three yards and one reception for an eight-yard touchdown in Sunday's win over Denver. Frank Gore had 28 carries, so Bradshaw isn't going to get many carries unless Gore gets hurt. However, Bradshaw could have a role in the passing game if Indy finally gets its passing offense on track.
Bradshaw had one carry for five yards and one reception for eight yards in Sunday's loss to New Orleans. Bradshaw played nearly as many snaps (29) as Frank Gore (31) but wasn't used in the passing game (targeted just twice) when the Colts fell behind. He was needed as a blocker with Indy's offense line struggling again.
Bradshaw is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Signed just a few days ago, Bradshaw probably won't be a big threat to Frank Gore's workload Sunday night, but he may have an immediate role on passing downs. With Bradshaw already in game shape, Josh Robinson is inactive for Sunday's contest.
