Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw will have season-ending neck surgery, according to ProFootballTalk.

Bradshaw had missed the previous two weeks with a neck injury after rushing for 186 yards and two touchdowns in Indianapolis' first three games of the season. The Colts lost starting running back Vick Ballard to a torn ACL earlier in the season. Indianapolis currently has running backs Trent Richardson - acquired from Cleveland in a trade on Sept. 18 - and Donald Brown available on their active roster.
