INDIANAPOLIS: Indianapolis running back Ahmad Bradshaw is likely out for the remainder of the season after breaking his leg in the fourth quarter of a 42-20 loss, the Colts said on Monday (Tuesday in Manila).
Bradshaw, who is the National Football League team’s leading rusher this season, fractured his left fibula on a short run early in the final quarter of Sunday’s defeat to New England, the Colts said.
Head coach Chuck Pagano revealed the diagnosis during a news conference, adding that Bradshaw would visit a specialist before the team decides whether or not to place him on the injured reserve list.
Bradshaw sustained the injury when being stopped just short of the goal line. The veteran running back was later seen on crutches with his left leg in a protective boot following the game.
The two-time 1,000-yard rusher was limited to just three games last season by a neck problem which required surgery.
He was having a strong season for the AFC South-leading Colts this year, compiling a team-best 425 rushing yards with two touchdowns on 90 carries. AFP
