Ahmad Bradshaw back at practice
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been able to practice in his return from last year's neck surgery, reports the Indianapolis Star.

"I got cleared Friday and started (practicing) on Monday," Bradshaw said. "I'm just so happy to be out here with the team. I'm able to get some camaraderie with the (offensive) line and the quarterbacks. And just to be out here putting the playbook on the field is great."

Bradshaw said he anticipates he'll have to gain another level of medical clearance before training camp, which will involve padded practices and contact. 

"I feel a lot fresher," he said. "I went through a lot of foot injuries and surgeries, so just to be able to actually train at this time of year, I haven't been able to do that the last couple of years. It feels good to be running around at this time of year and I'm feeling faster right now."

Bradshaw is expected to be the No. 2 running back for the Colts to open the season behind Trent Richardson.

Ahmad Bradshaw updates rehab from neck surgery
by Larry Hartstein |

Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw said he feels "great" six months after having neck surgery.

"Getting stronger," he told the Indianapolis Star. "I'm just glad to be back here and be a part of this team."

Bradshaw, 28, said doctors fused two vertebrae in his neck.

"They say (the correction) is permanent," Bradshaw told the paper. "I think it makes it stronger. They fused the bone, the C3 and C4. It's two vertebrae working together now, so I think it makes it stronger. And (the doctors) think so, too. Everything's coming along. I'm getting stronger. I'm starting to touch the field and run a lot more. It's all upside for me."

Don't count out Vick Ballard in Colts' backfield competition
by Larry Hartstein |

All signs point to Colts running back Vick Ballard being ready for training camp, reports Ballard tore his ACL in Week 2 last season, making a cut in practice.

The website says Ballard won't necessarily be the No. 3 back behind Trent Richardson and Ahmad Bradshaw, noting Richardson flopped last year and Bradshaw (neck) needs to prove he can stay healthy.

Ballard ran for 814 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie in 2012.

Pagano breaks down Colts' backfield
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that he's looking forward to the competition at running back between Trent Richardson, Ahmad Bradshaw and Vick Ballard .

"It’s going to be great competition, I know that," Pagano said. "Certainly with Trent, Ahmad and Vick coming back. It’s a good problem that we have. It’s going to create great competition at the position."

Pagano said the health for Bradshaw (neck) and Ballard (ACL) will determine their usage early on this season. Both finished last year on injured reserve.

"We know what Trent is capable of doing," Pagano said. "Trent is going to be so much better in our second season with us. Just having an offseason, knowing the offense and feeling more comfortable and knowing the pieces around him and having chemistry with our offensive line. There’s going to be great competition there. You have to have one guy you call your bell cow, who is going to get the lion's share of the snaps. We have a lot of options there. It's good to have multiple backs."

Pagano said bringing back Bradshaw was a no-brainer.

"You watched him play," Pagano said. "The guy is a warrior, he's a fierce, fierce competitor and I knew once he got the diagnosis, knew what he had to go through from a rehab standpoint that there was no question once the doctor said you're going to be fine he'd come back. That's in his DNA. He doesn't know anything else. He doesn't want to do anything else."
