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.

The Colts managed to put up 448 yards on offense against the Steelers. We break down the fantasy implications. The Indianapolis Colts could not figure out how to stop the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8, falling to 5-3 after a 51-34 loss on Sunday. Andrew Luck and the Colts offense attempted to bring the game back within a single score in the fourth quarter, but it was too little, too late. Although Indianapolis' defense completely fell apart, its ...

Justin Forsett Is a Must-Start Fantasy Running Back in Week 8 vs. Bengals

Oct 24 2014 10:37pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Baltimore Ravens running back Justin Forsett's fantasy owners must realize two things heading into Week 8 of the NFL season. First, the ball-carrier's season average of 5.8 yards per carry is no fluke—he's remained consistent each and every week. Second, this is not last year's Cincinnati Bengals defense. This team is reeling in 2014 following the departure of defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer. When taking both of those things into consideration, Forsett becomes a must-sta ...

Colts vs. Steelers: Breaking Down Indianapolis' Game Plan

Oct 23 2014 5:59am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Indianapolis Colts are for real.  They are a bona fide Super Bowl contender, a power in the AFC. They are second in the AFC in point differential to the Baltimore Ravens—who they beat soundly in Week 5.  Indianapolis is quickly rising in the power rankings and are no longer seen as frauds. The defense is playing better than it has in decades, and the offense is back to Manning-era style and efficiency.  All is good in Naptown.  Now is ...

Reggie Wayne's Injury No Cause for Concern for Colts

Oct 21 2014 3:34pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Our sports culture is one based on reactionary thinking. So, with Colts receiver Reggie Wayne's availability in question for next week following an elbow injury with no public MRI results, it is somewhat understandable for Colts fans to remember last year's woes at receiver and begin biting their fingernails.  But that was then, this is now.  When Wayne went down with a season-ending ACL tear against the Broncos last year, he forced T.Y. Hilton into a No. 1 role the young r ...
