Ahmad Bradshaw’s latest step on his return from foot surgery to the Indianapolis Colts’ backfield came with a nudge from the outside. The veteran running back is on the active roster after spending the first two weeks of training camp on the physically unable to perform list. While the Colts might have activated Bradshaw this week the NFL made certain the transfer happened sooner rather than later. A league spokesman confirmed to The Star the team was instructed to activate Bradshaw after it discovered he briefly participated in an Aug. 4 walk-through. There was no accompanying fine for the PUP violation. “We just had discussions with the league concerning Ahmad’s status” coach Chuck Pagano said Tuesday. “We all agreed that it was the best thing to bring him off PUP at this time.” Bradshaw admitted he first found out about a change in his status when the team announced it Monday afternoon. So now what? Slow and easy. “If it was left up to him he’d want to go (Tuesday)” Pagano said. “We’re going to protect him from himself and bring him along just like we said we were ... err on the side of caution and he’ll be day-to-day.” It was halfway through the afternoon practice before Bradshaw made an appearance. He was without pads and accompanied by a trainer. They went to a far end of the Anderson University practice complex and worked with other players still on the mend. “We’re just going to take it slow” Bradshaw said following the morning walk-through. “I feel great now. I feel I’m ready to go. “It’s just a process I have to go through to be ready for the pounding and practices every day.” Does he feel 100 percent? “Oh definitely” Bradshaw said. “I guess that was part of the misinterpretation last week and I’m just ready to go ... We just want to take it slow make it last the whole season.” The Colts signed Bradshaw 27 in June to a one-year contract that could be worth as much as $2 million. He opened training camp on PUP because he still was recovering from January surgery on his right foot that included inserting a large screw for stability.
