New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw returned to the practice field on Friday after resting his injured foot on Wednesday and Thursday. This seems to be Bradshaw's normal schedule now, sitting out practice early in the week, but practicing on Friday and starting on game day.
Bradshaw has 836 yards rushing and five touchdowns on the season and 21 receptions for 196 yards. Bradshaw has been bothered by this foot injury for much of the season, but it hasn't had a large impact on his playing time.
Fantasy Impact: Bradshaw's return to practice is an indication that everything is normal with the running back. It is safe to put Bradshaw in your lineup, expect him to see the majority of the touches in the Giants backfield.
The Saints offer a good matchup for Bradshaw. The game will likely be high scoring and there is a good chance that Bradshaw will find the end zone.
