New York Giants starting running back Ahmad Bradshaw suffered a left knee injury in the first quarter and is questionable to return to the game against the New Orleans Saints. Bradshaw was looked at briefly on the sidelines before heading to the locker room for examination, but is back on the sidelines. He has not, however, returned to action. Rookie running back David Wilson is carrying the load in his place.
Bradshaw carried the ball just three times for 6 yards before his injury. He has been in and out of the lineup this year, and throughout his career, with various leg injuries. Entering Week 14, he had 836 rushing yards, 196 receiving yards and five touchdowns on the season.
Wilson scored the Giants' first touchdown on a 97-yard kickoff return, and Big Blue scored again on an Eli Manning to Martellus Bennett touchdown. The Giants lead 14-7 early in the second quarter. Backup running back Andre Brown is also hurt, so behind Wilson, who has struggled with fumbling issues, there is only Kregg Lumpkin among active running backs for the Giants
