Indianapolis Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw was placed on injured reserve yesterday and is set to undergo season-ending neck surgery.

Now that Bradshaw has indeed been ruled out for the year, we'll find out out how big Richardson's role can become and if backup Donald Brown will continue to step up.
