The Indianapolis Colts signed running back Ahmad Bradshaw during free agency this offseason, but they have yet to get a look at him in game action as he recovers from offseason foot surgery.
The good news is that Bradshaw has returned to practice where he is working with the second-team offense and he is expected to take the field in Week One of the regular season in a limited role.
“There’s probably a certain amount of plays we’d like to get him,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said, via ESPN.com. “What that is, I don’t know. He was out there [at practice Monday] and running around and looked pretty good out there.”
Even with his current work coming with the second-team, Bradshaw is going to give it his all when he finally takes the field in a game wearing the Colts uniform.
I love this game and I’m going to give my 100 percent every time, every Sunday,” he said. “I don’t know how the plays are going to go, but when I’m out there expect full speed.”
Indianapolis is one of the league’s most exciting young teams and Bradshaw could be the player they need to round out their offseason.
