Brandon Jacobs Injury Update: Giants RB Sits Out Friday Practice

New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs sat out his third straight practice on Friday and at this point it is highly doubtful that he'll play on Sunday. I suspect the Giants will say he is a game-time decision, but don't expect him in the lineup. Adam Schefter has reported Jacobs' injury is an MCL sprain. While that is not as big a deal as any sort tear, it can often result in missing games. It looks like such will be the case with Jacobs.

Jacobs absence means Ahmad Bradshaw will end up with a sizable load of carries and Danny Ware will likely operate as his backup. Bradshaw has not rushed more than 15 times this season. He had five games of 20+ carries last season so he can handle such a load. Ware has only had three carries in one game this year, so while he might get some work, it will not be a whole lot. If you've got Bradshaw, this could be a breakout week for him.
