ANDERSON, Ind. —
He understands the team has a lot of options at his position. “Just keep working hard," said Brown of his plan. "Everything will work itself out one way or another. And when your number’s called, make the most of it.”
The newcomer in the group is Ahmad Bradshaw, who is only new to the team but is entering his seventh season in the league. He averaged 4.6 yards per carry for the Giants before being waived in Feb.
Right now Bradshaw is not able to practice but is hoping things are moving toward that changing in the next few weeks.
“I feel great," he said. "They are just bringing me along slow. It’s a long season and I’m maybe two, maybe three weeks away. I feel great to go right now but we’ll see how the process goes. I love this game that much to just want to be out there right now but I am just trying to take care of my body and my career. Right now, it’s just patience is a virtue.”
Another change is that the Colts have talked about the fullback having a much greater presence in this year's offense.
“It doesn’t change at all," said Brashaw of adding the fullback. "It actually springs you to the next level most of the time with fullbacks and it also hides you back in the backfield.”
"Fullbacks obviously help open up the run game and that will be good for alleviating some pressure on our pass game," said Brown. "That’s what we need to do. We need to run the ball better and take some pressure off Andrew (quarterback Luck) and the wide receivers.”
Finally, the Colts spent a bit of money and effort improving the offensive line.
