Bradshaw (wrist) was placed on the Colts' injured reserve list Monday, ending his 2015 season.

EDGE Analysis

Bradshaw suffered a wrist injury during Sunday's win over the Buccaneers and will now land on season-ending IR for the third straight season. In just six games played this term, the 29-year-old managed only 85 yards on 31 carries, but caught three touchdown passes on 10 receptions. With Bradshaw out, expect the Colts to rely on the combination of Frank Gore and Dan Herron going forward.

Bradshaw underwent an X-ray on his injured wrist after Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, and while it showed no fractures, the area is very swollen, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

EDGE Analysis

Bradshaw was knocked out of the game due to the ailment, finishing with four carries for six yards and three catches on four targets for 20 receiving yards. The Colts' rushing game was shut down by the Bucs, as starter Frank Gore could only get 24 yards on 19 carries. If Bradshaw has to miss any time, Dan Herron will likely take over the backup role.

Bradshaw carried the ball nine times for 32 yards, and added four receptions on four targets for 20 yards and two touchdowns Sunday in Atlanta.

EDGE Analysis

Bradshaw's modest yardage total isn't surprising due to his lack of touches, but he's making the most of his limited time on the field. The ninth-year running back is firmly behind Frank Gore on the Colts depth chart, but that hasn't stopped him from picking up three receiving scores over the past two weeks. Still, expecting Bradshaw to continue to find pay dirt with regularity is a stretch.

Bradshaw had six carries for three yards and one reception for an eight-yard touchdown in Sunday's win over Denver.

EDGE Analysis

Frank Gore had 28 carries, so Bradshaw isn't going to get many carries unless Gore gets hurt. However, Bradshaw could have a role in the passing game if Indy finally gets its passing offense on track.

Bradshaw had seven carries for 31 yards in Monday's loss at Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

He was targeted just once in the passing game as he was frequently kept in as a blocker in passing situations. He played 28 snaps to Frank Gore's 56 snaps and will likely keep a similar backup role unless Gore is hurt.

Bradshaw had one carry for five yards and one reception for eight yards in Sunday's loss to New Orleans.

EDGE Analysis

Bradshaw played nearly as many snaps (29) as Frank Gore (31) but wasn't used in the passing game (targeted just twice) when the Colts fell behind. He was needed as a blocker with Indy's offense line struggling again.

Bradshaw gained eight yards on four carries and eight yards on one reception in Sunday's 34-27 loss to the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Signed earlier in the week, Bradshaw stepped right in as Frank Gore's top backup, getting some snaps in both running and passing situations. Zurlon Tipton surprisingly got most of the third-down work, but he didn't get any touches or targets and has otherwise been uninvolved in the offense this season. Although Bradshaw could take on some of those snaps in future weeks, he's not going to threaten Gore for lead-back duties.

Bradshaw is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

EDGE Analysis

Signed just a few days ago, Bradshaw probably won't be a big threat to Frank Gore's workload Sunday night, but he may have an immediate role on passing downs. With Bradshaw already in game shape, Josh Robinson is inactive for Sunday's contest.

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.
