Ahmad Bradshaw feels like he's back.

He already has rushed for 150 yards and leads the Indianapolis Colts with three touchdown receptions, doubling his previous career total.

After being hobbled by a foot injury most of the 2012 season and missing all but three games in 2013, Bradshaw has re-emerged as a major playmaker in the Colts offense.

A year ago, it seemed none of this would be possible when he went down with a season-ending neck injury. While he recovered from the fusion of two vertebrae in his neck, Bradshaw seriously contemplated retirement before deciding against it.
