Is Joseph Addai preparing for a return to the NFL?
The New York Giants gave Addai a workout on Tuesday, indicating that they may be looking for insurance in regards to Ahmad Bradshaw's neck injury. Bradshaw is undergoing a series of tests this week after X-rays on his neck were taken on Sunday. He carried the ball 30 times for 200 yards in Week 5 against the Browns and 27 carries in Week 6, but has only had 25 carries total in the last two games.
The Giants are on a bye this week, giving them extra time to sort this out.
Fantasy Take: Sort out your lineup for the rest of the season if you're relying on Bradshaw, because the news this week has not been good. Addai was let go by the Colts after last season and then signed with the Patriots, before being released prior to the season for a failed physical.
He has not rushed for 1,000 yards in a season since 2007. Probably don't get your hopes up on that one.
