Indianapolis Colts place running back Ahmad Bradshaw on IR

Monday November 30th, 2015

The Indianapolis Colts have placed running back Ahmad Bradshaw on injured reserve, the team announced Monday.

Bradshaw sustained a wrist injury during Sunday’s 25–12 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and did not return. This trip marks the third consecutive season Bradshaw has landed on injured reserve.

The 29-year-old’s 2014 campaign was cut short after he broke his leg in a Week 11 game against the Patriots, and a neck injury just three games into the 2013 season kept him out for the remainder of that year.

Bradshaw had been serving as a backup to veteran Frank Gore, averaging 2.7 yards per carry in six games.

In a corresponding move, the team announced it had re-signed running back Zurlon Tipton, who was waived last week. He joins Gore and Dan Herron in the backfield.
