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.

Oct 11 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

For the first time this season, Thursday Night Football didn't result in a blowout victory. The Indianapolis Colts dominated early in the game, but a late comeback by the Houston Texans concluded with just a five-point win for the home team. The Colts covered the spread but not before giving bettors an overwhelming feeling of anxiety. From a fantasy perspective, owners of Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson and Arian ...

It was a game, that for once, went exactly as planned.  Andrew Luck versus J.J. Watt, they said. Luck threw for 370 yards and three touchdowns, overcoming a phenomenal game by Watt, who finished with two sacks, seven tackles, a fumble recovery for a touchdown and three batted passes.  Check.  T.Y. Hilton would have his usual big game against the Houston Texans, they said. All the third-year receiver f ...

Start 'Em, Sit 'Em Week 6: Final Review Before Thursday Night Football

Oct 9 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Deciding to advise fantasy players to either start or sit players without knowing what their roster looks like or how their league format works can be a tricky exercise. After all, it's an unwise person who makes a decision or judgement without the proper context.  So when you read on, keep in mind that I'm deciding on whether or not a player should be started or sat in a vacuum. You might not have a choice but to start these players. Your league format might favor them ...

Indianapolis Colts on Cusp of Being Legitimate Super Bowl Contenders in 2014

Oct 6 2014 10:09am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

No team in the NFL is perfect, especially the Indianapolis Colts. But teams that go on to win the Super Bowl rarely are. The Baltimore Ravens went just 10-6 in 2012, but thanks to a terrific postseason from Joe Flacco along with some dramatic victories, they were able to hold the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season. That's the goal for all 32 teams every season, but only one is able to win each year. For some, all it takes is making it to the postseason, because anything ...

Oct 5 2014 3:42pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

INDIANAPOLIS — Andrew Luck took his chances Sunday. Eventually, the Colts quarterback — and Indianapolis’ suddenly stout defence — did just enough to hold on. Luck threw for one touchdown, ran for another, worked the clock masterfully and then watched the defence close it out in the final minutes Sunday as the Colts held off the Baltimore Ravens 20-13. Luck was 32 of 49 for 312 yards with two interceptions. But his 6-yard TD pass to Dwayne Allen early in the third quarter finally gave th ...
