The Colts took part in a 90-minute practice on Tuesday afternoon with the biggest news surrounding that of Ahmad Bradshaw. Below is a look at the start of work week for the Colts as they prepare for a nationally televised game on Sunday against the New York Giants

Take a look below at the top pieces from Wednesday, August 14th.  

NFL forces Colts to activate RB Ahmad Bradshaw

The news of the day on Tuesday revolved around Ahmad Bradshaw being activated from the Colts PUP list.

“We had discussions with the league about Ahmad’s status and agreed it was the best thing to bring him off PUP,” Chuck Pagano said at Tuesday’s press conference. “If it was left up to (Bradshaw) he’d go today but we’re going to protect him from himself. We’ll err on the side of caution.”

Bradshaw, 27, signed a one-year contract with the Colts in June after a six-year career with the New York Giants. He underwent surgery on his right foot in January and opened training camp on PUP while continuing his rehab work.

Bradshaw was expected to be activated either this week or next before the NFL intervened.

“I feel great,” he said. “I’m ready to get out there with the guys. We’ll take it slow and make it last all season.”

The Colts were back on the practice field Tuesday for a 90-minute session.

Coby Fleener was absent from the afternoon practice as he was going through league protocol for a concussion.

With the announcement of Ahmad Bradshaw coming off the Colts PUP list, you can’t blame the new Colts running back for being a bit excited.

“I feel great right now,” Bradshaw said. “I feel I’m ready to go. It’s just a process I have to go through to be ready for the pounding and practices every day.”

Colts fans in general should be thrilled as well.

It would appear the Colts have a pair of top backs and returning starter Vick Ballard is ready for whatever role.

“I’ve always been that lead back,” Ballard said. “It really doesn’t matter to me. We have one team goal, that’s winning the Super Bowl. Whatever we have to do to win the Super Bowl I’m down for it.”
