Colts Forced To Activate Bradshaw

The NFL forced the Indianapolis Colts to activate running back Ahmad Bradshaw from the physically unable to perform list Monday due to a violation of league rules, a source confirmed.

The Colts committed a league violation by having Bradshaw take handoffs during a morning walk-through practice on Aug. 4.

After that practice, Colts coach Chuck Pagano tried to downplay Bradshaw’s participation when asked about the running back’s status, saying he was simply taking “mental reps.”
