The Indianapolis Colts were handed a scare in week one when veteran running back Frank Gore was forced out of the game with cramps.
Fortunately for the AFC South franchise, the 32-year-old will be ready to go for week two. But, with only two untested rookies behind him on the depth chart, the Colts may be rethinking their running back situation.
According to Indianapolis Star reporter Stephen Holder, the team have some interest in bringing back Ahmad Bradshaw now that he is healthy and suspension-free.

Bradshaw's one-game ban for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy has now passed. And it looks like Indianapolis could bring back a player who racked up over 500 all-purpose yards and eight touchdowns for the team in 2014 before getting injured, and ultimately released.
Holder's assertion that Bradshaw is now healthy is also crucial. Having fractured his leg in Week 10 of the 2014 campaign, the fact he is now totally recovered is likely to have played a part in attracting Indy's attention once again.
If the Colts are serious about adding depth at RB, then Ahmad Bradshaw would be the logical choice.
The 29-year-old knows the system, and quarterback Andrew Luck, after two years with the franchise and, therefore, wouldn't need much time to get up to speed.
What's more, with Frank Gore having been on the sidelines for much of the Colts' third-down plays in week one, Bradshaw's pass-catching ability would be a perfect foil for the former 49ers star.
