Ahmad Bradshaw knee injury puts fantasy status in question

Elsa

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw injured his left knee against the New Orleans Saints. We break down the fantasy implications.

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw injured his left knee early in the Giants 52-27 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Bradshaw was able to return, but only carried the ball 11 times for 33 yards. Rookie running back David Wilson had 13 carries for 100 yards and two touchdowns.

After the game, coach Tom Coughlin said of Bradshaw "I'm sure he's going to be sore as he always is." Bradshaw has been dealing with a foot injury for much of the season that causes him miss practices every week, but he has not missed much game time.

Fantasy Impact: The addition of a knee injury to Bradshaw's existing foot problems along with the breakout performance of Wilson puts Bradshaw's fantasy value in question.

The fact that he was able to return to the game means Bradshaw will likely play next week against the Falcons, but he might see a reduction in his touches.
