Report: Colts RB Ahmad Bradshaw will undergo neck surgery, is done for the season

For once, it's not Ahmad Bradshaw @AhmadBradshaw's feet that are forcing him off the field. However, his neck injury wasn't healing as well as he would have liked, so Bradshaw has decided to undergo season-ending surgery, a league source told Pro Football Talk on Tuesday. Bradshaw initially suffered the injury in Week 3 and had not played since. Trent Richardson and Donald Brown @Donaldb31 will handle the Colts' backfield for the duration, with Richardson being the clear lead runner.

Fantasy Analysis:

The exact nature of Bradshaw's injury is unclear, but neck injuries can be career-threatening. Bradshaw has been injury-prone throughout his career and will turn 28 next spring. Richardson has been far from impressive in his three games with the Colts, but the Colts want him to be their workhorse, and he certainly has that opportunity now. Brown is just a handcuff, change-of-pace player.
