Ahmad Bradshaw knows his teammates think he’s tough. That’s part of the reason they call him “the junkyard dog.”
“They know exactly what I’m going through,” the Giants running back said this week. “Running backs take a lot of beating. But my style of running, just being able to be elusive and get away from people, is kind of hard on broken feet.”
Bradshaw said “feet” because he now suspects the same injury he has played through in his right foot — a cracked fifth metatarsal, the bone on the outside of the foot — has developed in his left foot as well.
He said he hasn’t gotten official word that is the case, but Bradshaw said he feels the same discomfort he has in his right foot on the left side, so he thinks “more than likely” he’ll find out the same bone has been fractured.
