The New York Giants will be without running back Ahmad Bradshaw against the New England Patriots with a foot injury. The Giants offense is already hampered without Hakeem Nicks in the line up, so losing Bradshaw is huge. It's likely the Giants will focus on rushing the football on the Patriots defense.
With Bradshaw out, expect running back Brandon Jacobs to get the lion's share of the carries. The two backs split time as is, but Bradshaw should get the majority of the touches out of the backfield. It's possible D.J. Ware and Da'Rel Scott will get some looks, but Bradshaw will be the go to guy for the game. Jacobs has been asking for more touches, so this will be an audition game for him, so to speak.
