Bradshaw’s seniority is obviously helping him retain his job, but each players role will ultimately be determined by productivity. The good news for Bradshaw is that he has been hampered with a neck injury, instead of something related to his legs.
Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw mentioned that he expects to play against the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend.
“You can guarantee I’ll be out there fighting with my team,” said Bradshaw, per Paul Schwartz.
As of now, Bradshaw hasn’t been informed of his role in the Giants offense changing, despite a great performance from Andre Brown last Thursday.
Ralph Vacchiano reports that Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw has received medical clearance to return to practice.
This is a good sign for Bradshaw’s chances of playing against the Eagles this weekend, but it would still make sense for the Giants to divide the workload with Andre Brown.
“No, there are still issues” said Coughlin “If it was just pain he would be going.”
Coughlin is still holding out hope that Bradshaw will be available for the Week 4’s game against the Eagles. While Bradshaw was out, RB Andre Brown had a career game, and seemingly played his way into a timeshare once Bradshaw is healthy enough to play.
Bradshaw sat out of the Giants’ Monday practice, so it’s really hard to say whether or not he will be available for this weekends game. We’ll have updates throughout the week.
