The Indianapolis Colts rocked the NFL world a few weeks ago by trading for Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson. That move might actually turn out to be a bonus for the team this year. In the offseason, the Colts acquired free agent RB Ahmad Bradshaw. Bradshaw has had a lengthy injury history and it won’t stop this year.
Bradshaw has been placed on the injured reserve list with a neck injury and will miss the remainder of the regular season. ESPN has reported this afternoon that Bradshaw will opt for season ending neck surgery.
The former New York Giants running back has a lengthy history of foot injuries and now a27, with a neck injury, one has to wonder whether or not his career in the league can continue.
Fantasy owners of Trent Richardson can expect his touches to rise significantly as the season moves forward. Donald Brown is not a threat.
