INDIANAPOLIS -- Indianapolis Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw missed practice Wednesday and is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the undefeated Seattle Seahawks because of a neck injury.

Bradshaw originally injured his neck in the Sept. 22 game at San Francisco. He did not practice last week and missed Sunday’s 37-3 victory over Jacksonville.

“Until I get something definitive from our doctors and trainers, I’m planning on him being around,” coach Chuck Pagano said when asked if he thinks Bradshaw will play Sunday. “Certainly he won’t be at practice. We’ve made adjustments for that. Once we get some feedback, once we get some answers, then we’ll know more.”

Trent Richardson will continue to start at running back with Donald Brown backing him up while Bradshaw is out of the lineup.

This is not the first time Bradshaw, who signed a one-year contract with the Colts in the offseason, has dealt with a neck problem. He injured his neck in the first half of a game against Tampa Bay on Sept. 16, 2012, when he was still with the New York Giants. Bradshaw later had X-rays done on his neck in November 2012.

Bradshaw has rushed for 186 yards on 41 carries this season.
