Ahmad Bradshaw plans to play in 2014

Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw has no intention of calling it a career.

Bradshaw’s season came to a premature end because of neck surgery and he’s had other issues with his neck and feet in recent years, but he told Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star that he plans on coming back to the field in 2014. In fact, Bradshaw says that he feels like he’d be well enough to return this season if the Colts hadn’t put him on season-ending injured reserve.

“I feel like I might be able to play if I could,” Bradshaw said. “I feel great coming out of surgery. I just feel like I needed it. [The doctors] said they took that bulging disc off my spinal cord and my blood pressure and everything just dropped. There was a lot of stress and everything built up in my body from that. That being the biggest nerve in your body, it was pretty serious. But I feel good now.”

That Bradshaw wants to play comes as little surprise. The question will be how much teams are willing to offer in terms of compensation and playing time to a player who has spent a lot of time in the trainer’s room over the last few years.

    He has the heart of a lion and tons of ability, his body just isn’t up to the task of playing in the NFL though.

    It’s a damn shame.

    Post-surgery Bradshaw > Richardson

    Guys like this need to know when to call it a career. The neck is nothing to play with. Walk away while you can, and thank god you made it through an NFL career without anything worse happening to your body.

    He can always come back home and take the bit role that will be vacated when Jacobs and Hillis leave; particularly if Dave is forced to retire.
