Though he practiced in full pads on Tuesday, he was still limited during the session. It's likely that he'll see more and more work as the week progresses, but he's not expected to play in Indiana's third preseason game against the Cleveland Browns. Bradshaw said that he hoped to be back in practice as early as last week, so he does seem to be behind a bit.

Bradshaw was signed by the Colts this offseason, after the New York Giants released him. Bradshaw had 1,015 yards and six touchdowns in 14 games with the Giants last season.

Fantasy Impact: Bradshaw was always going to be a "wait and see" guy for fantasy owners, and the fact that he's likely not playing in the third preseason game likely means he won't play in the fourth, given how little starters usually play in those games. It's unlikely fantasy owners will get a good look at Bradshaw before the start of the regular season, so he remains a fantasy red flag at this point.
