Ahmad Bradshaw’s ankle was apparently broken on Sunday night when the Colts were defeated by the Patriots 42-20, according to sources. Now Indianapolis’ fans and pay per head services seriously hope that the team didn’t receive a very big blow after his injury.
On Monday, the player will receive tests so it can be known just how serious his injury is, and if he will be in need of surgery or not.
Bradshaw, who was injured during the game’s second half, was using crutches, and his left foot had a boot on when he left the team’s locker room after the meeting with New England came to an end. The player also had sunglasses on. Maybe he did this to mask his feelings of frustration, something that many fans can fully understand, considering the team’s big loss.
“To see a brother go down, especially one I’m around all day, every day, is real tough,” said fellow RB Trent Richardson. “That’s a brother, and it’s heartbreaking to see a guy down like that. We’re going to see what they say [Monday], but at the end of the day, we have his back.
“Whenever he gets ready to come back, if he does this year or next year, whenever it is, there’s going to be open doors for him.”
The Colts’ fans were very impressed when they saw that this season, Bradshaw was able to record six receptions for TD’s, which happen to be three away from the league record of TD receptions made in a season by a RB.
For the Colts, the RB was not the lone player to wear a walking boot as he was leaving the team’s locker room. TE Dwayne Allen was also wearing a boot. Many fans were very concerned when in the first half of the game, the player’s ankle was injured, and on Monday he’s set to receive an MRI.
According to sources, Indianapolis believes that what Allen suffered in the game was a syndesmotic sprain – otherwise known as a high ankle sprain – an injury that many experts know should not be taken lightly at all.
Many NFL fans and pay per head services hope that the injuries suffered by these players don’t prove to be serious enough for them to be ruled out of the game for a long time, and wish that they make very speedy recoveries.
