He's been better than Richardson for two games and that's not likely to change as long as Bradshaw is healthy. He was solid in Week 1 at Denver with three carries for 15 yards and five catches for 70 yards, and he followed that up with 13 carries for 70 yards and five catches for 26 yards and two touchdowns against the Eagles.
Both running backs should do well against the Jaguars, who have already allowed four touchdowns to running backs in two games against the Eagles and Redskins.
But if you have to decide between Bradshaw and Richardson, the choice is easy. We just wish the Colts would realize it as well.
For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.
Bradshaw scored on a 1-yard toss in the first quarter and a 7-yarder in the fourth quarter. He caught all five of his targets for 26 yards and rushed for 70 yards on 13 carries (5.4 ypc).
Bradshaw received 10 more touches Week 2 than he did Week 1. He's up to 10 catches this season and should maintain a prominent role going forward, assuming he avoids injury. He'll visit the Jaguars in Week 3.
Richardson started and ran six times for 20 yards (3.3 ypc). He was solid as a receiver, catching three of four targets for 31 yards.
Bradshaw was spectacular as a receiver and dominated snaps in the two-minute offense. He caught five of six targets for 70 yards, breaking multiple tackles in the open field. Bradshaw carried three times for 15 yards (5.0 ypc).
Look for Indy to rotate both backs again Week 2 against the Eagles.
Herron has run for 104 yards on 18 preseason carries (5.7 ypc), including a 43-yard jaunt Saturday against the Saints. Most of those yards have come against backups, but coach Chuck Pagano said he's not discounting Herron.
"I don't look at it that way," Pagano told ESPN.com. "I just know 'Boom' has had a really good camp and a good preseason. He's made some nice runs. It's comforting knowing that you have a guy that not only excels on special teams, but you've got another guy in the backfield that can run and get yards for you when you need them."
A third-year back out of Ohio State, Herron entered camp as a long shot to make the roster. Now he's third on the depth chart and rising fast. "It's a great opportunity right now for me," said Herron, who also returns kickoffs. "I come here every day like it's my first day and the coaches know nothing about me. I try to work as hard as I can and just try to showcase what I can."
