Ahmad Bradshaw's status up in the air
Wednesday, December 12, 2012, 10:57am
Bradshaw returned to the game, but Wilson took over as the feature back. And on Monday, Bradshaw was undergoing an MRI and other tests to determine if there was any significant damage.
“Anytime you’re talking about a knee and you’re going through a series of tests, you’re better off to wait and see what the results are,” Tom Coughlin said on Monday. “I wouldn’t speculate on anything right now.”
Wilson figures to have a role this week regardless of Bradshaw's status, but if the veteran is sidelined, Wilson will be a fringe RB1 play against the Falcons in Week 15.
Hakeem Nicks won't be 100-percent
Monday, December 10, 2012, 2:13pm
Nicks hasn't been at 100% at any point this season, but Coughlin coming out and saying this certainly doesn't improve our outlook. Nicks gets a tough matchup against the Falcons in Week 15 and his upside is certainly limited with the nagging injuries. On the bright side, Nicks has caught a TD pass in two of the last three weeks
X-rays negative for Hakeem Nicks

“Yeah, I did, everything was good,” said Nicks, who declined to specify whether it was specifically the knee that was examined.
“I came through physically OK,” Nicks said. “I think I might have came down a little bit on my knee but I’m so used to doing it, it goes away in about a play or two.”

Falcons moving to more of a RBBC
Wednesday, November 28, 2012, 12:33pm
Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers played 31 offensive snaps against the Buccaneers compared to Michael Turner’s 23. With the exception of Atlanta’s lopsided victory at San Diego, when Rodgers got extra playing time with the game in hand, it was the first time this season Turner didn’t get the most snaps among the running backs.
“We feel like Jacquizz is a very viable option to carry the football and has done a nice job for us,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “It has become more of the vogue thing to do, to have a ‘running back by committee.’”
Rodgers' role has increased in recent weeks, so he should be a sneaky start against the Saints on Thursday, especially in PPR formats.
