Indianapolis Colts Ahmad Bradshaw faces possible season-ending neck surgery, per multiple reports.

The Indianapolis Colts are faced with another potential player casualty with running back Ahmad Bradshaw possibly requiring season-ending neck surgery.

At the moment, the Colts are hoping sufficient rest will be enough to overcome the injury which Bradshaw sustained during their 27-7 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sept. 22. 

However, a team source told Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star that surgery "might be needed." 

Chappell also reports Bradshaw reportedly sought the advice of renowned orthopedic spine surgeon Dr. Robert Watkins regarding the issue in Los Angeles, citing an ESPN report dated Oct. 3. 

Bradshaw also suffered a neck injury as a New York Giant in Week 2 of the 2012 NFL sesaon against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but shook off the effects to rush for 1,015 yards and six touchdowns for the year.

He hasn't practiced since the latest injury, according to Chappell, who spoke with Colts head coach Chuck Pagano on Wednesday.

"I'm planning on him being around. Certainly he won't be at practice. We've made some adjustments for that. Once we get some feedback, once we get some answers, then we'll know more."

The Colts head into Week 5 against a vaunted Seattle Seahawks team with a decimated running back rotation. Vick Ballard, who led the team in rushing last season, suffered a season-ending knee injury on Sept. 12. 

Without both Bradshaw and Ballard, Trent Richardson and Donald Brown are expected to split carries for Indianapolis. 

Indianapolis has been hampered with several injuries in 2013.

Tight end Dwayne Allen suffered a season ending hip injury against the Oakland Raiders in Week 1 while guard Donald Thomas tore his quadriceps the week after in a home loss to the Miami Dolphins. 

In spite of these, the Colts are 3-1 and are in a first-place tie with the Tennessee Titans in the AFC South through Week 5 of the regular season.

Fantasy football owners have waited months for the return of the NFL regular season, and it’s imperative to start Week 1 with a victory. Deciphering the latest flex and points-per-reception rankings is key to your success. Most fantasy owners understand that they should start the best overall player at each position every week, but there is an art to finding the right flex player.

Making Sense of the Recent Neck and Spine Injuries Throughout the NFL

Aug 28 2014 12:26am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The fact that the NFL remains an inherently violent league comes as a surprise to no one, but the recent apparent spike in neck and cervical spine injuries is hard to ignore. Peyton Manning's recent battle with cervical spine issues remains the most prominent case of a serious neck problem in a big-name NFL athlete—as well as one of the most impressive injury comebacks in recent memory—but several other ca ...

Fantasy Football 2014: Top Picks, Sleepers and Overall Rankings of Best RBs

Aug 24 2014 1:54pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

While the NFL continues to change, running backs remain the most important position in fantasy football. With fewer do-it-all running backs, it is vital to grab one when you have the chance. After that, make sure you can get anyone capable of putting points on the board because they run out quickly, especially in bigger fantasy football leagues. Of course, you have to make sure to grab the right players set for a big year. Here is a compl ...

2014 Fantasy Football Sleeper Candidate: Ahmad Bradshaw

Aug 23 2014 6:00pm CDT | Source: Rant Sports

I don’t have much faith in running back Trent Richardson, and I think Ahmad Bradshaw is a sleeper candidate fantasy football players are generally overlooking. The first reason you should like Bradshaw is the fact that the depth chart of the Indianapolis Colts is extremely thin. Running back Vic Ballard looked like he was goi ...
