Refusing to rule someone out due to toughness may be the coolest thing I’ve ever heard. The injury is similar to the one suffered by RG3. Even if he does play it’s likely David Wilson will get the majority of the carries in Atlanta.
The Falcons run defence was shredded by Cam Newton & Co. on Sunday — they’ve been terrible the last few weeks aside from a strong performance against New Orleans in week 13. Eli Manning and Wilson are primed for big days. Make your waiver claim while you still can.
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.
New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw surprised a lot of people this past Sunday when he openly argued with head coach Tom Coughlin over getting the ball with the game on the line. While he wouldn’t be a starter if his ability was suspect, openly challenging a coach is walking a fine line and practically asking to get benched.
There are probably far greater surprises which greeted you on this fine Sunday morning than the information contained in the above simple headline. Maybe you woke up in a foreign location, or maybe you struggled to locate your pants from the night before.
Still, though, you need to be keenly aware of Ahmad Bradshaw’s game-time decision status as we chug towards that time when the inactives are announced in a little less than an hour. Because in the unlikely event that he can’t play against the Redskins, there’s still a chance for you to pull an emergency parachute depending on your league settings.
Since returning from a neck injury suffered in week 2, Ahmad Bradshaw has been racking up big time numbers. 370 rushing yards and 5.0 yards per carry do not lie – Bradshaw has fended off Andre Brown and David Wilson’s advances. For now.
Once again, Bradshaw’s foot is giving him problems:
Very interesting that Ahmad Bradshaw has re-appeared on that list — and for his foot, not his neck. #NYG
