New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw is sitting out Wednesday practice as the team gets ready for the Sunday game at the New England Patriots. Bradshaw is dealing with a sore and swollen foot that cost him some playing time this past week. He left and re-entered the game but aggravating what he says was a pre-existing ailment does not help matters. Since he finished the game there would seem to be a decent chance he'll be active and starting on Sunday.
One drawback is that Brandon Jacobs likely would take away some carries from Bradshaw if the starting back is not at 100%. Jacobs is back after missing a couple weeks and has recently worked as a bit of a handcuff for Jacobs. The Patriots struggle against both the run and the pass so this is a particularly solid matchup for the Giants. We'll keep an eye on this as it develops through a week of practice.
