Bradshaw and Angerer activated from PUP

ANDERSON, Ind. — Ahmad Bradshaw and Pat Angerer now exist in a form of roster limbo.

The veterans were activated from the physically unable to perform (PUP) list Tuesday by the Indianapolis Colts. But neither man participated in the afternoon practice, and neither is expected to play Sunday when the team continues the preseason schedule on the road against the New York Giants.

Bradshaw rushed for 4,232 and 32 touchdowns in six seasons with the Giants before signing with Indianapolis as a free agent in June. He won two Super Bowls with New York and would love to be on the field this weekend.

But the Colts are determined to take things slowly with the running back as he recovers from March foot surgery.

"Well, I can't wait to go back there," Bradshaw said of the Big Apple. "I wish I was playing. It will be a great atmosphere regardless, and I think we'll be fine going into New York."

A procedural error earlier in training camp led to Indianapolis activating Bradshaw perhaps ahead of schedule. League rules prohibit players on the PUP list from taking part in any on-field activities during practice.

The Colts misinterpreted the rule, and Bradshaw briefly participated during a morning walkthrough late in the first week of training camp. After discussing the issue with the NFL, the team and the league mutually decided the best solution was to remove the running back from the PUP list.

Head coach Chuck Pagano said the decision will not alter the team's approach.

"If it was left up to him, he'd want to go today," Pagano said. "We're going to protect him from himself and bring him along just like we said we were always going to bring him along. Err on the side of caution, and he'll be day-to-day. The good thing is he'll be out there. He'll be with his teammates and preparing as if he was going to play, just not going to get the reps right now."

    Robert Mathis is caught in an interesting predicament. The veteran outside linebacker finds himself preparing as hard as he can to play a football season that he will watch for the first month on television. That's the result of a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy, and it means fans will see less of the league's reigning sack champion on the practice field.

The former second-round pick was running out of chances when the Indianapolis Colts signed him during the 2012 season. Eleven starts and eight interceptions later, he’s ingrained as the team’s slot cornerback — working under the final season of a two-year, $4 million deal.
