Colts lose Ahmad Bradshaw to broken ankle

The Colts will be without arguably their best running back against the Jaguars on Sunday.

The Indianapolis Colts were run off the field by the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football, but the biggest loss on the evening came with running back Ahmad Bradshaw apparently breaking his ankle, or at least that's what the Colts fear according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Bradshaw was the Colts most productive back, though he did not lead the team in carriers. It will be a blow for their offense for sure, because outside of Bradshaw the team didn't have much of a rushing threat other than Andrew Luck scrambling.

Obviously this means that Bradshaw will be out against the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday, so the team can expect a heavy dose of the back the Colts traded a first-round pick for last year, Trent Richardson.

Unfortunately, this probably means the Colts are forced to spread their offense out and let Andrew Luck throw the ball all over the place.
