Indianapolis Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw is considering season-ending neck surgery, though the severity of his injury remains unclear.
The Indianapolis Star cited a source that said there is "a level of concern surgery might be required" for Bradshaw, who has been out since he was injury Sept. 22 at San Francisco.
"I'm planning on him being around," head coach Chuck Pagano said Wednesday. "Certainly he won't be at practice. We've made some adjustments for that. Once we get some feedback, once we get some answers, then we'll know more."
The Colts signed the 27-year-old Bradshaw to a one-year deal in June. Because of durability questions -- Bradshaw had multiple foot surgeries as a member of the New York Giants -- his deal is laden with incentives.
Trent Richardson, acquired from the Cleveland Browns, and backup Donald Brown combined for 125 yards last week at Jacksonville.
