The New York Giants offseason workout program begins in only two weeks, but running back Ahmad Bradshaw will not be participating. Following a non-surgical procedure in February, Bradshaw's plan is to take it easy for at least three months, meaning he'll be inactive for both Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and Mini-Camp.
Bradshaw's goal is to be completely ready for training camp and as close to 100% as he could possibly be; especially since he anticipates an increase in his workload due to the departure of Brandon Jacobs.
As it turns out, Bradshaw's "procedure" was actually an injection of bone marrow taken from his hip, with the sole purpose of generating new bone in his injured foot. Since the marrow was taken from his own body, he did not have to travel outside of the country (a la Kobe Bryant) to have it done. Instead, he had it done in North Carolina.
The five-year veteran also believes the Giants' running game is in fine shape with the backs they currently have. He doesn't feel they need any new recruits, but acknowledges that he'll have to step up vocally in the absence of Jacobs.
"I am not sure who they will bring in. Hopefully nobody," Bradshaw said.
