Ahmad Bradshaw went to see an ankle specialist on Wednesday who told him what the Giants had told him: he’s cleared to keep playing on a cracked bone in his foot.
At least until the end of the season, or until the crack becomes a full-blown fracture - whichever comes first.
“Of course. I know that. It all depends on the bone and how it is in my foot,” Bradshaw said Thursday as he revealed to reporters the full extent of his injury. “I just plan on going out there and giving my all. If it breaks, it does and I’ll get surgery.
If not, I’ll wait until the end of the season. Hopefully, then I won’t need it. But more than likely, I’ll plan on having surgery.”
Bradshaw said he has a crack in the fifth metatarsal of his right foot. That’s the bone on the outside of the foot, which Bradshaw was told is the easiest bone to break. Bradshaw believes his choppy, “bow-legged” style of running is what caused the injury.
