The news on Monday’s day off came from Colts owner Jim Irsay when assessing his team’s performance after a 44-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Irsay is never shy about expressing himself on Twitter and vented through the social media platform:

“Many starters played briefly or were nursing little injuries, but it was a crap performance, my apologies/My commanders got n earful from me!”

“Mental reps” forced Colts to activate Bradshaw

By: Mike Florio, Pro Football Talk

Some interesting news that came out of Monday was when the Colts announced that Ahmad Bradshaw will be activated from the PUP list.

However this doesn’t necessarily indicate that Bradshaw is ready to practice.

Per a league source, the Monday move of Bradshaw to the active roster occurred because the Colts allowed Bradshaw to practice eight days ago.

Specifically, he took some handoffs during a walk-through practice.  The Colts called downplayed it as “mental reps.”

The league investigated the situation, determined otherwise, and required the Colts to move Bradshaw to the active roster.
