Ahmad Bradshaw left Saturday's preseason game between the Giants and the Jets with a hand injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Ahmad Bradshaw left Saturday's preseason game between the New York Giants and the New York Jets with a hand injury. X-rays taken following the injury came back negative. Bradshaw said after the game that suffered a popped cyst, and should okay going forward.

"I've had it for a while," Bradshaw said after the game. "We didn't know what to do with it. It WAS still there and then on one of the runs I hit it on someone's helmet and it just popped.

"There was a little pain in it. It feels good. We're just being cautious about it."

Analysis: It doesn't sound like Bradshaw will miss any time due to the injury. In any case, rookie David Wilson didn't make much of an argument to unseat the veteran. Wilson rushed eight times for 26 yards to lead the Giants against a stingy Jets rush defense. Bradshaw should continue to be the Giants' featured back, but Wilson will presumably cut into the workload a bit. Just how much remains to be seen. Unfortunately, due to the injury, we didn't get to see the dynamic at work Saturday.
