Ahmad Bradshaw Injury: Giants RB Could Play Without Practicing

Ahmad Bradshaw still isn't practicing with the New York Giants, but he could still return to the field on Sunday to face the Green Bay PackersVia ESPN, the Giants running back says that he plans on playing this weekend, regardless of whether or not he is able to practice.

"I feel good...I plan on playing."    

Bradshaw broke a bone in his foot during the Giants' Week 8 win over the Miami Dolphins and hasn't suited up since. With Bradshaw out of the lineup, the Giants' rushing attack has fallen off a cliff and is now dead last in the league, in terms of rushing yards per game. Brandon Jacobs is averaging just 3.1 yards per carry on the season and the Giants have lost three of the four games that they've been without Bradshaw.

The Green Bay run defense is only middle of the road in the NFL, so a healthy Bradshaw could go a long way towards the Giants pulling off an upset.

Ahmad Bradshaw Status Update: Giants Running Back Out Vs. Saints

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw has once again been ruled out and will miss the match up with the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football. Bradshaw has been dealing with a foot injury that has kept him on the sideline for a little while now.

If you're looking for a replacement for Bradshaw, running back Brandon Jacobs is expected to get the lion's share of the carries with back up running back D.J. Ware getting some touches mixed in. The best bet for the majority of touches and scoring chances however lie with Brandon Jacobs until Ahmad Bradshaw is healthy enough to come back and get on the field.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury Update: Giants RB Ruled Out For Week 10

The New York Giants ruled out running back Ahmad Bradshaw for their week 10 game against the San Francisco 49ers, according to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger who first reported the news last night. The Giants made it official today. Bradshaw has a stress fracture in his foot. He missed last week’s game against the Patriots.

Brandon Jacobs will again carry most of the Giants’ rushing load this week. Last week against the Patriots, Jacobs carried the ball 18 times for 72 yards and a touchdown.

Running figures to be a little tougher against the 49ers. Reinvigorated this season, the San Francisco defense has not allowed a rushing touchdown all season. Opponents are averaging just over 70 yards per game against the 49ers this season.

Despite the fracture the Giants say that Bradshaw will not need surgery for the injury.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury: Giants RB Is Doubtful For Week 9

Ahmad Bradshaw has been declared doubtful by the New York Giants, all but ruling out the running back for Sunday's tilt in Foxboro against the New England Patriots. Head coach Tom Coughlin said Friday that Bradshaw's foot injury would have to improve significantly for the back to even be considered a game-time decision. Bradshaw did not practice Friday according to the team's injury report.  

Brandon Jacobs should see his workload increase substantially as a direct result of Bradshaw's absence. Jacobs, no stranger to the injury bug himself, is averaging less than 10 carries per game he has participated in this season. Da'Rel Scott and D.J. Ware could see touches as well, but Bradshaw has dominated the rushing load so much up to this point that it is difficult to predict just how carries will be split. 

Bradshaw now faces the difficult decision whether to undergo surgery or not. Going forward with any sort of procedure could only further delay his return to the playing field.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury Update: Giants Running Back Still Needs To Improve

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin declared that running back Ahmad Bradshaw's foot injury is at a point where he actually needs to show some improvement before he would even be a game-time decision. That would seem to indicate he is doubtful for Sunday, and thus less than a 50% chance of playing.

Bradshaw has been dealing with a cracked bone in his foot and implications of the injury have been across the board from out indefinitely to no big deal. He could potentially get surgery on the foot but has held off the decision for now. If he has surgery, the absence would be further extended to an indefinite time frame.

In the meantime, backup Brandon Jacobs will take over the starting role. Normally, Jacobs picks up as many as ten carries in place of Ahmad Bradshaw. One has to wonder if D.J. Ware or Da'Rel Scott would fill that role, or work more as a normal backup getting just a few touches apiece at most. For now, Jacobs is the play this Sunday. Ware is a flex option only if you are fairly desperate for a running back.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury Update: Fantasy Status Remains Nebulous

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw reportedly suffered a cracked bone in his foot and at this point his status for Sunday is uncertain. There have been numerous conflicting reports over the past 24 hours covering everything from out indefinitely to not serious and will play Sunday to no surgery for now but Sunday status is unknown.

It has been that kind of day trying to figure out what to do in his absence. Some folks are grabbing D.J. Ware, others are sitting tight with Brandon Jacobs, and others are just staring off into an abyss with no idea what to do at this point. The joy of Twitter specifically and the Internet in general is the ability to get a whole host of conflicting information very quickly.

At this point, the best advice I can give is if you have Ahmad Bradshaw, but no Brandon Jacobs, D.J. Ware is worth grabbing if it won't require releasing anybody significant. Even if Bradshaw can't go on Sunday, the odds are in favor of Brandon Jacobs getting most of the carries. That is no guarantee, but unless you are sitting with only one running back in your starting lineup, Ware is not a good starting option this week.

If you have Brandon Jacobs on your roster, he might be a good start no matter what. The Giants are a 4:15pm ET game, which means you might be forced to make a decision early in the day depending on start times for your running backs and flex position. If you have to make the decision before the 1:00pm ET games and don't have other decent options, start Brandon Jacobs. He will get a decent number of carries no matter what, and it would not be surprising to see Bradshaw start but eventually give way to Jacobs.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury: Giants RB Could Play This Weekend?

New York Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw was injured in last week's victory over the Miami Dolphins but ultimately returned to the game. The Newark Star-Ledger reported that the injury was a cracked bone in his foot and that he will be sidelined "indefinitely."

Apparently. "indefinitely" means just a few days. At least according to ESPN's Adam Schefter who cites a source that says Bradshaw's injury isn't serious and he should be available for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. The report says surgery won't be necessary.

Giants head coach said on Thursday that Bradshaw would see a foot specialist but he wasn't sure whether surgery was needed. Surgery would make him miss a significant amount of time, maybe even the entire season.

The Giants play in New England on Sunday so we may not know until the inactives come out on that whether Bradshaw is available. He didn't practice on Wednesday.

Check out SB Nation's Big Blue View where tons of Giants fans are weighing in on the reports.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury: Fantasy Implications Of Reported Cracked Bone

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw has reportedly received some bad news that could sideline him indefinitely. Reports out of New York indicate Bradshaw suffered a cracked bone in his foot, although the team has not officially released any information.

Even without the official release of information, it seemed likely that Bradshaw was going to sit out Sunday's game against the New England Patriots. Brandon Jacobs would take over the bulk of the carries, with D.J. Ware and Da'Rel Scott acting as his backups.

If Bradshaw decides on some kind of corrective surgery on his foot, he would miss even more time. If that were the case, the Giants would need to re-assess their running back strategy moving forward. When all backs are healthy, Bradshaw is the primary back, but Jacobs gets upwards of ten carries a game. If Bradshaw is out, it will be interesting to see if Ware or Scott emerges as a viable fantasy option. Jacobs will be the primary fantasy option, but that could change depending on the Giants strategy.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury: Status Of Giants RB Is Uncertain After Cracked Bone In Foot

New York Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw suffered a foot injury in last weekend's game against the Miami Dolphins. He exited the game at the time but ultimately returned. After the game, he said an old injury he had was aggravated. He sat out of Wednesday's practice with the injury.

Now the Newark Star-Ledger is reporting that Bradshaw suffered a cracked bone in his foot, an injury that will sideline him indefinitely. Those are about the only details we have right now and his status for Sunday is up in the air.

If Bradshaw can't go, RB Brandon Jacobs will see an increased role. Last weekend against the Dolphins, he rushed four times for 10 yards while Bradshaw amassed 50 yards on 13 carries.

The Giants travel to New England this weekend to play the Patriots in a Super Bowl rematch. Check out SB Nation's Big Blue View for more on Bradshaw's status for that game.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury Update: Giants RB Sits Out Wednesday Practice

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw is sitting out Wednesday practice as the team gets ready for the Sunday game at the New England Patriots. Bradshaw is dealing with a sore and swollen foot that cost him some playing time this past week. He left and re-entered the game but aggravating what he says was a pre-existing ailment does not help matters. Since he finished the game there would seem to be a decent chance he'll be active and starting on Sunday.

One drawback is that Brandon Jacobs likely would take away some carries from Bradshaw if the starting back is not at 100%. Jacobs is back after missing a couple weeks and has recently worked as a bit of a handcuff for Jacobs. The Patriots struggle against both the run and the pass so this is a particularly solid matchup for the Giants. We'll keep an eye on this as it develops through a week of practice.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury Update: Foot Injury Slows Giants Running Back

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw finished Sunday's game with 13 carries for 50 yards and 38 receiving yards, but was hobbled for much of the game by a right foot injury. He left the game several times only to return and battle through the injury as the Giants barely emerged with a 20-17 victory.

The game saw the return of Brandon Jacobs from his own injury, but even with Bradshaw hampered, Jacobs only had four rushes for ten yards. It was not a pretty day of fantasy football on the ground in this ugly affair as Eli Manning and Victor Cruz were the big winners on the day.

Bradshaw stated after the game that the injury was an aggravation of a preexisting issue. If that's the case, this will be an injury you will want to keep an eye on as the season moves along. It would not surprise me if Bradshaw was fairly limited in practice this week while he heals that injury. He finished the game with the injury so I don't expect him to be a problem next week, but you will want to keep an eye on this through the week.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury Update: Foot 'Sore' For Giants Running Back

The foot injury that Ahmad Bradshaw suffered against the Dolphins on Sunday doesn't appear to be terribly serious. The Giants running back left during the game to get X-rays in the locker room, but the X-Rays were negative.

Bradshaw got his foot taped and returned to the game. He finished with 13 carries for 50 yards in the Giants 20-17 victory against winless Miami.

After the game, Bradshaw said that his foot is "just sore right now." (via New York Daily News' Ebenezer Samuel)

Bradshaw: Well I got a screw in my right fifth metatarsal, maybe three years ago. I think just the head of it is aggravating right now.
Oct 30 via webFavoriteRetweetReply

 

Bradshaw has been the Giants most productive running back this season and New York would struggled to replace Bradshaw's production. Collectively, the Giants have been one of the worst-rushing teams in the NFL this season.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury: Foot Sends Giants Running Back For X-Ray

UPDATE: Ahmad Bradshaw returned to the field after the Giants running back suffered a foot injury that required X-Rays in the the locker room. Details below.

***

Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw suffered a foot injury and headed to the locker room to get x-rays. He returned to the sideline where he is getting taped. His return is questionable.

New York trails the Dolphins 17-10 after three quarters on Sunday. Without a healthy Bradshaw, the Giants will have to rely on Eli Manning and the pass attack to come back in this game.

The Giants can ill afford to lose Bradshaw, the only back who has given New York anything this season. The Giants rank 30th in the NFL in rushing yards per game. Bradshaw is 19th in the league, averaging 65 yards per game. Backup Brandon Jacobs is averaging 29 yards per game on just 3.1 yards per carry.
