Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw suffered a cracked bone in his foot during Sunday's game against the Dolphins and is out indefinitely, according to someone informed of Bradshaw's health status.
The person, who requested anonymity because the Giants haven't provided full details on Bradshaw's injury, said the fifth-year veteran is mulling whether to have corrective surgery. Bradshaw has had similar issues with both feet and ankles in recent years and has undergone surgery to insert screws into his feet.
Bradshaw left the game against Miami to undergo X-rays on his foot and then returned after it was determined one of the screws was aggravating his foot. It was believed he had suffered no structural damage.
It's unclear at this point how long Bradshaw will be sidelined, though it's obvious the Giants are headed to New England with Brandon Jacobs set to carry the load. Jacobs has struggled this season and gained only 10 yards on four carries against Miami but vowed earlier this week to have a changed attitude that will result in his "scoring these touchdowns" moving forward.
Clearly, this is a huge blow for Bradshaw owners, especially those who don't have Brandon Jacobs as a handcuff. He'll take over the lead back duties, but the Giants will rotate (D.J.) Danny Ware in as well. Jacobs is an immediate add in all leagues if available, Ware is worth a flier in deeper leagues.
Update: Adam Schefter tweeted this: Person familar with Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw's injury texted this: "Not serious injury - should play Sunday. No surgery (needed)."
