Pagano also said that tight end Dwayne Allen suffered an ankle injury during the game. Schefter reports that Allen has a high ankle sprain.
Bradshaw was on crutches after the game and had a boot on his left foot. He had seven carries for four yards and four catches for seven yards before leaving the game with the injury.
Colts running back Trent Richardson said it was "heartbreaking" to see Bradshaw injure his ankle, ESPN's Mike Wells reports.
“To see a brother go down, especially one I’m around all day, every day, is real tough,” Richardson said. “That’s a brother, and it’s heartbreaking to see a guy down like that. We’re going to see what they say [Monday], but at the end of the day, we have his back. Whenever he gets ready to come back, if he does this year or next year, whenever it is, there’s going to be open doors for him.”
Bradshaw is the team’s leading rusher this season with 425 yards on 90 carries and two touchdowns. He also has 38 catches for 300 yards and six touchdowns. He is in his second season with the Colts after spending the first six seasons with the New York Giants.
The Colts (6-4) host the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-9) on Sunday.
