Tough season gets tougher for Ahmad Bradshaw

The New York Giants’ running game that has been stuck in the slow lane could face another problem.

Ahmad Bradshaw could miss significant time moving forward as he has a fractured bone in his right foot, according to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. His status for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots is up in the air.

Per the report, Bradshaw played eight games in 2009 while dealing with a similar injury. He could miss several weeks in the hope the injury heals and he can play without pain at the end of the season. Another source told Vacchiano that Bradshaw plans to play against the Patriots.

“He has had issues in the past and he has played with a crack or whatever you want to call it in his foot,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. “We don’t know what the determination will be just yet. We will wait and see.”

Bradshaw was using a scooter Thursday and had his foot in a walking boot. Coughlin said Bradshaw is expected to seek a medical opinion from Dr. Robert Anderson, a noted foot specialist in North Carolina.
