Bradshaw has been suspended for one game by the NFL due to his May marijuana charge, Pro Football Talk reports.

Bradshaw pleaded no contest to the charge, and the league has accordingly suspended him. He remains a man without a team right now, and this won't help Bradshaw's cause as he looks to catch on with a franchise for the 2015-16 season.

Bradshaw pleaded no contest and paid a $351 fine to settle a misdemeanor count of marijuana possession in Preble County, Ohio, the Associated Press reports. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said that Bradshaw's case will be reviewed "under our policies."

It's not clear if Bradshaw will face a suspension since his status in the league's drug program is unknown. Bradshaw was effective in the Indianapolis offense last season and took over as the starting running back before missing six games with a fractured fibula. It was the second consecutive season he looked like an impact player with the Colts only to suffer a season-ending injury. He's missed 21 games the last three seasons due to injuries, but some team will likely take a chance on him given his production last year when healthy.

Bradshaw (ankle) was cited for possession of marijuana after a traffic stop Thursday in Preble County, Ohio, 2 News WDTN Ohio reports.Details are still relatively scarce, but Bradshaw was reportedly also cited for following too close, while the passenger in the vehicle was arrested and charged with two counts of drug possession. Bradshaw, a impending free agent, is scheduled to appear in court Feb. 17. A fractured fibula ended Bradshaw's season in November but he said late last month that he had shed his cast and expected to resume working out in the near future.

Bradshaw -- who suffered a fractured fibula in Week 11 -- hopes to be able to resume working out soon, ESPN.com reports.

Per the report, Bradshaw -- whose leg had been in a cast -- is now sporting a walking boot. The veteran back -- who has been limited to a combined 13 games over the past two campaigns -- is slated to become a free agent this offseason, but he hopes to re-sign with the Colts.

Bradshaw (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Bradshaw suffered a broken fibula in Sunday evening's loss to the Patriots, so it's no surprise to see him on the IR with his season likely over. The move clears up a needed roster spot for the Colts, who signed both return specialist Josh Cribbs and tight end Weslye Saunders on Tuesday. As far as their backfield goes, Trent Richardson appears likely to lead the charge, with Dan "Boom" Herron to serve in a complementary role.

Bradshaw suffered a fractured fibula in Sunday's loss to the Patriots, Kevin Bowen of colts.com reports.

While coach Chuck Pagano isn't sure if Bradshaw will go on IR, the running back is clearly out indefinitely, which sets the stage for Trent Richardson to see added action in the Colts' backfield in the coming weeks, along with Dan Herron.

Bradshaw is believed to have suffered a broken ankle in Sunday night's loss to the Patriots, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Further tests are scheduled for Monday to determine if surgery is necessary, but it appears as though a lengthy absence is on tap. Trent Richardson figures to carry a much larger workload while Bradshaw is unavailable.

Bradshaw (leg/ankle) had crutches and a protective boot on his injured left leg, after exiting Sunday's game against the Patriots to undergo X-rays, Mike Chappell of The Indianapolis Star reports.

According to The Indianapolis Star's Chappell, Bradshaw seems likely to miss extended time. The Colts have yet to provide an update, following Bradshaw's exit at the beginning of the fourth quarter. While nothing should be assumed until more information is available, Bradshaw's injury history is rather discouraging. If he does end up missing extended time, Trent Richardson and Noah Herron would likely get more touches. Richardson, as inefficient as he's been, may again find himself as the lead back in a high-powered offense.

Bradshaw left Sunday's game against the Patriots in the fourth quarter to have X-rays on his left ankle, Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Bradshaw was shown limping to the locker room at the beginning of the fourth quarter, with no shoe on his left foot. He hasn't played 16 games since 2010, and while he does have a history of foot/ankle injuries, it was his right foot that primarily caused problems in recent years. An ankle injury is probably better news than a foot issue, but Bradshaw has been ruled out for the rest of the game, according to Stephen Holder of The Indianapolis Star. A serious injury would likely lead to an expansion of Trent Richardson's workload, with Dan Herron moving up to second on the depth chart. Bradshaw had four receptions for seven yards and seven carries for four yards when he left Sunday's game.

Bradshaw gained 50 yards on seven carries and 29 yards on three receptions in Monday's 40-24 win over the Giants.

Trent Richardson (hamstring) returned to his complementary role, finishing with 33 yards on seven carries and nine yards on two receptions. Bradshaw got most of the playing time in the first half, as the Colts had just four running-back carries before halftime, despite carrying a lead nearly all night. The fourth-quarter clock-killing work largely went to Dan Herron, who has a been a non-factor outside of garbage time this season. The team's pass-heavy approach has limited the carries given to both members of the running back tandem, but it has also helped to establish Bradshaw as the clearly preferred fantasy choice. While the stat line may not have been what he was looking for against his old team, Bradshaw was both explosive with the ball in his hands and impressive in pass protection. The Colts have a Week 10 bye, followed by a Week 11 matchup with a Patriots team that has been oddly inconsistent defending the run this season.
