Indianapolis Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been ruled out for the team's Week 4 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars because of a neck injury.

Head coach Chuck Pagano made the announcement Friday after Bradshaw missed practice all week. Newly acquired back Trent Richardson will get the nod for Indianapolis.

Bradshaw, who has 186 yards and two touchdowns, is in his first season with the Colts after spending the first six seasons with the New York Giants.

The Jaguars come into the weekend with the league's worst rushing defense, allowing 167.7 yards per game.
