Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw has begun to weigh treatment options for his injured neck, but a decision on how he will ultimately proceed is expected to take multiple weeks, head coach Chuck Pagano told reporters on Friday, according to multiple media outlets.
Via Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star, Pagano said Bradshaw has consulted with multiple doctors.
Citing an unnamed team source, Mike Chappell of the the Indianapolis Star reported Thursday that season-concluding surgery was a possible outcome for Bradshaw, though recovery through rest was another.
The 27-year-old Bradshaw has rushed for 186 yards and a touchdown on 41 carries for Indianapolis this season.
With Bradshaw on the mend, Trent Richardson and Donald Brown are the club’s only healthy running backs. On Friday, Pagano indicated that fullback Robert Hughes is another option at tailback, Albert Breer of NFL Network reported.
