Ahmad Bradshaw will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game between the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins, according to reports. Bradshaw is once again dealing with a nagging foot injury. The running back was able to practice Thursday after being held out Wednesday. He was forced to sit out Friday, however, putting his playing status in jeopardy.
There are conflicting reports on the matter, with NFL.com reporting that Bradshaw will indeed play. The running back has been spectacular since returning from injury earlier in October. He has rushed for 316 yards and two touchdowns over his last two games.
Fantasy Impact: It appears that Bradshaw is safe to play this week in fantasy leagues. Fortunately, the Giants will be playing in the first slate of games, so owners will know the status of the running back for certain before the rest of their lineup locks in.
The Redskins are stout against the run, giving up just 3.9 yards per carry on the season. Bradshaw carved up a stout San Francisco 49ers defense last week, however, and the Giants' run blocking has really jelled over the last few weeks. If he is on the field, Bradshaw should a fine RB2 play this week.
