New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin hoped to have running back Ahmad Bradshaw back on the practice field today after he sat out Wednesday’s practice with a foot injury. After only practicing on one occasion last week, Coughlin hinted Wednesday that having Bradshaw practice only once a week could become a routine to preserve his health.
RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) is not practicing today. He sat out yesterday, too. Coughlin hoped he would work today. #nyg

Not practicing today shouldn’t put Bradshaw owners into full panic mode just yet, since he did play Week 7 after not practicing most of last week. What it means, though, is Bradshaw is clearly dealing with a bad wheel that limited him to only 12 carries in against the Redskins.
Owners of Andre Brown (owned in 39.2 percent of ESPN leagues and 49 percent of Yahoo leagues) can once again rejoice, as the Week 3 fantasy hero might see an increased role, and possibly even a starting assignment Sunday against the Cowboys. After missing two weeks due to injury, Brown returned last week and had 17 yards on five carries. David Wilson, who was given seven carries in Week 6, failed to get any time with the offense last week, and was held to kick return duties only.
We should know more on Bradshaw’s status tomorrow, but for now, pick up Brown if he’s available.
