New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw did not participate in practice on Thursday due to a foot injury, according to head coach Tom Coughlin. This is the second consecutive day that Bradshaw has missed practice.
While Bradshaw has had recurring foot issues throughout his career, this most recent irritant surfaced following the team's victory against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6, when his foot was stepped on. It was originally projected that the 26-year-old running back was going to return to practice on Thursday. According to Coughlin, he would not clarify his absence as a setback and believed that he would be available on Friday.
Bradshaw later stated that he sat out practice in the hopes of avoiding a setback by managing the soreness in his foot and also believes that he will be able to practice on Friday. During the portion of practice open to the media, Bradshaw was seen riding the stationary bike while his teammates participated in drills.
