Bradshaw at last preparing for Colts debut

(Continued)

"There's probably a certain amount of plays we'd like to get him," Pagano said. "What that is, I don't know. Again, he was out there and running around and looked pretty good (in Monday's practice)."

Bradshaw later said he was taking reps with the second team. That likely means second-year running back Vick Ballard will start against the Raiders.

But both players are likely to see significant playing time, regardless of who takes the field first.

That system should be familiar to Bradshaw. He was part of a tandem in New York first with Brandon Jacobs and later with Wilson.

During training camp, he said he has no problem helping to mentor Ballard along the way. And on Monday he said he's not concerned about when he'll enter the game.

"Just like I said, I love this game and I'm going to give my 100 percent every time and every Sunday," Bradshaw said. "Like I said, I don't know how the plays are going to go and who's going to get how many, but when I'm out there you can expect full speed."

The numbers back that up.

Bradshaw rushed for 4,232 yards and 32 touchdowns with the Giants. He had a career-high 1,235 yards in 2010 and scored a career-high nine touchdowns in 2011. Last season, he ran for 1,015 yards and six scores.

But he played in all 16 games just once with New York, and there have been questions about his durability. Bradshaw dismisses those doubts.

He fought hard to prove himself after being drafted out of Marshall, and he's prepared to do it all over again.

"How many games have I played hurt?" he asked. "So I guess you can look back at it a couple of different ways, but like I say, I'm healthy and this training staff has done a great job of getting me prepared and getting me confident on my foot. I'm going to be ready to go and prove the doubters wrong."
