News: Bradshaw had nine carries for 65 rushing yards and two catches on three targets for 18 receiving yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Jaguars. Impact: Trent Richardson finished with five more carries than Bradshaw, though he turned them into eight fewer yards. The Colts seem comfortable playing both backs roughly equally, which is a tough situation from a fantasy perspective. Bradshaw has been effective in the passing game, as he now has three receiving touchdowns in the last two games. While Richardson will continue to limit Bradshaw's fantasy upside, the latter appears to be the higher-upside play heading into Week 4 against the Titans, who are much better against the pass than the run this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Bradshaw ran for 70 yards on 13 carries and caught five passes for 26 yards and two touchdowns in Monday's loss to Philadelphia. Impact: He continues to steal the spotlight from Trent Richardson in what is now certainly a split backfield.(STATS, 10:42am)

News: Bradshaw had five receptions for 26 yards and two touchdowns, while adding 13 carries for 70 yards, in Monday's 30-27 loss to the Eagles. Impact: The encouraging performance comes on the heels of Colts coach Chuck Pagano admitting that Bradshaw and Trent Richardson will split snaps based on game flow. For a second straight week, Bradshaw proceeded to outplay his counterpart, though Richardson played above the incredibly low bar that he's set, taking 21 carries for 79 yards, albeit with a fumble. Bradshaw is the better player, and while it's fair to consider him injury-prone, he looks both healthy and explosive through two games. According to Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, Bradshaw took 46 snaps in Monday's game, compared to 31 for Richardson. Though the game situation was quite different from last week's, the snap split was almost exactly the same. Bradshaw is the more valuable fantasy commodity, even though Richardson had 21 carries Monday.(RotoWire, )

News: Trent Richardson and Bradshaw will split running back duties based on game flow, according to head coach Chuck Pagano. "From game to game, it'll be different depending on the score and how we're using different personnel groups," he told the Indianapolis Star. Bradshaw was limited in practice Thursday due to general soreness. Impact: Bradshaw already saw the majority of the playing time in Week 1, with 44 snaps on offense to Richardson's 29. The Colts fell behind early and Bradshaw has a larger role in the passing game, so the split could change if the Colts run the ball more. The Colts said during the offseason that Richardson would be the primary back, with Bradshaw having a secondary role, but the workload split and Pagano's comments indicate that Bradshaw will see more action than anticipated. However, Bradshaw's upside may be limited, as the Colts will likely try to limit his workload, considering he had offseason neck surgery. He was limited in practice Thursday, but should be able to play Monday.(RotoWire, )

News: Bradshaw (rest) was limited at Thursday's practice, the Colts' official site reports. Impact: We'll revisit Bradshaw's status Friday, but at this stage, there doesn't appear to be any sort of injury in play here that might affect his status for Monday's game against the Eagles.(RotoWire, )

News: Bradshaw (unspecified reason) was sporting a non-contact jersey Thursday, Stephen Holder of the Indianapolis Star reports. Impact: We'll have to see how the Colts list him on their Thursday practice participation/injury report, but it looks like Bradshaw's status is now worth monitoring in advance of Monday's game against the Eagles.(RotoWire, )

News: Bradshaw had 15 yards on three carries and 70 yards on five receptions on six targets in Sunday's 31-24 loss to the Colts. Impact: With the Colts falling behind 24-0 in the first half, the game situation was favorable for Bradshaw, who has long been an excellent receiving back. Trent Richardson was also active in the passing game, finishing his night with three receptions for 31 yards on four targets, in addition to his six carries for 20 yards. Bradshaw looked like the better of the two players, even though Richardson ran hard. Bradshaw's quicker, far more decisive, and generally seems to have a better idea of what he should do on the field. The Colts seemingly want Richardson to prove that he should be the lead back, but we could see more and more of Bradshaw, if the veteran continues to outplay the youngster. Of course, Bradshaw's durability issues will likely be a factor in any discussion. For now, you can still expect Richardson to handle most of the snaps, with Bradshaw frequently coming in for passing downs, and sometimes spelling Richardson in other situations.(RotoWire, )
