Per Mike Wells of ESPN.com, the Colts have moved running back Ahmad Bradshaw from the physically unable to perform list (PUP) to the active roster. This means Bradshaw is positioned to practice this week, and could play in the Colts second preseason game Sunday against the New York Giants, his old team.

Bradshaw was signed by the Colts as a free agent this offseason. He missed all of the team's OTAs, minicamp, and much of training camp recovering from a foot injury, which he sustained last season when playing for the Giants.

This moves comes on the same day that Colts owner Jim Irsay lashed out at his "commanders" within the organization on Twitter following Indy's lackluster performance in their first preseason game against the Buffalo Bills.

Another move made involved the Colts re-signing linebacker Monte Simmons, per Adam Caplan, a player they released back on August 5th. Interesting note about the re-signing is that it was reportedly for two years, which strongly suggests that Simmons isn't being brought in as a "warm camp body."

Simmons spent time on the Colts practice squad last year. The team waived him back last week to make room for fullback Robert Hughes.
