Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw carved up the 49ers' defense last week, but his availability for this week's game against a much less talented Jaguars defense is in question because Bradshaw didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday due to a neck injury that he sustained during the Week 3 win.
Bradshaw is used to missing practices; he did it regularly with the Giants and played on Sundays. But that rest was related to his numerous foot injuries. This is obviously something new and different, so I'm a little alarmed about his absences now. Perhaps it's not a big deal, but it would be nice to hear that he practiced on Friday in any fashion. Stay tuned. Even with Trent Richardson around, Bradshaw is in the RB2 range against Jacksonville.
