Earlier in the week Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw said he’d rather not practice in order to avoid any setbacks, but he came out of the practice without any. And at least in his mind he doesn’t have to worry about waking up with soreness today; he said he’s ready to go at full speed.
“If I’m out there, you’re going to see everything,” he said. “I put it all on the field.”
To no one’s surprise, Coughlin is taking a more cautious approach and wasn’t as resolute in Bradshaw’s status, though he did say he was encouraged by Bradshaw’s progress.
“He looked okay,” Coughlin said. “He went and worked. He’s telling me all the things that I want to hear, but he did okay. He did all right. We’ll see how he is in the morning.”
If Bradshaw can give it a go Sunday, he'll eat into Brandon Jacobs production considerably. Starting Bradshaw in his first week back would come with significant risk, but he has an extensive history of playing well when injured and missing practice.
