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.

Andrew Luck and an Aggressive Game Plan Have Colts Offense Rolling

Sep 29 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Another week, another lopsided Indianapolis Colts win.  Is anybody getting a Peyton Manning-era Colts feel? This Colts team, under this management, has never looked like this. The coaches have never looked this aggressive. Andrew Luck has never looked this good, not two weeks in a row.  Over the last two weeks, the Colts scored more than 40 points in consecutive games, the first time a Colts team has accomplished the feat. Luck has been ...

NFL Week 4 Picks: Rounding Up Top Experts' Predictions

Sep 26 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Many who pick games every week in the NFL are particularly interested in the point spread (we can’t imagine why), but picking the straight-up winners is difficult enough in this league. After all, we are only entering Week 4 and there are a mere three undefeated teams remaining. It’s not the defending champion Seattle Seahawks, mighty Denver Broncos or star-studded Green Bay Packers that are checking in at 3-0 either. The Cincinnati Bengals, Philadelphia Eagles and Arizona Car ...

Have Eli Manning, Giants Offense Finally Turned the Corner?

Sep 25 2014 11:31pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

When Eli Manning is rushing for touchdowns, you know he's feeling it.  The New York Giants quarterback was near-perfect in Week 4 as he led his team to a 45-14 win against Washington, passing for 300 yards on 28 of 39 attempts. Notably, he found breakout tight end Larry Donnell seven times, and the two linked up for three of Manning's four touchdowns.  Though many were waiting for Washington QB Kirk Cousins to be the brea ...

The Indianapolis Colts are back in the win column, but there's no time to admire their 44-17 drubbing of the Jacksonville Jaguars any longer.  As much fun as it was to review the tape of a blowout, the Tennessee Titans are coming to town, and the Colts still have work to do in order to get back where they belong: the top of the AFC South. Playing in the AFC South is a cure for struggles, and Jacksonville was as go ...

If you think your fantasy squad is thin after three weeks, things are going to get extremely difficult with bye weeks about to wreak havoc.  Week 4 is especially nasty, with the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns and St. Louis Rams taking the week off.
