Starting running back Ahmad Bradshaw intends to return from a four-game absence when the New York Giants play host to the unbeaten Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
"I feel good," Bradshaw said Wednesday. "I plan on playing."
Bradshaw isn't likely to practice this week.
"I don't want to," he said. "I wanna be as healthy as I can on Sunday.
"Maybe I'll try to run a little bit this week and see how it feels. Then Friday, if I can get out there and practice a little bit, maybe so. I just wanna be healthy toward the end of the week, so when Sunday comes there's not a lot of pain and I can rest the bone."
Bradshaw's inability to practice will make it difficult to predict his availability for Sunday's game. Complicating matters, the Giants kick off at 4:15 PM ET.
