Ahmad Bradshaw's struggles with chronic injuries to both of his feet are well documented, but after the picking up 33 yards on 11 carries in the New York Giants 52-27 victory over the New Orleans Saints the running back is dealing with an injury to his knee.
"Any time you are talking about a knee, and he’s going through a series of tests, you're better off to wait and see what the results are," Coughlin said. "I wouldn’t speculate on anything right now."
Bradshaw did return to the game on modified duty after the injury, so we doubt it's that serious (wait, what was that Coach said about speculation?)…although it doesn't take that serious of an injury to cost a player a few weeks.
The Giants should know more about Bradshaw when they get test results back and see how it responds in the coming days. In the meantime, Vrentas adds, Coughlin worries that wide receiver Hakeem Nicks will be playing through pain all year.
"I thought he had some plays in the game last night that showed real quickness, very similar to what we’re used to. It’s not there all the time. He does have, as I say, he does have these issues that are going to be with him throughout the course of the year."
Of course, that's not news to any of us who have been watching Nicks limp around all season. We'd hoped he'd get back to full strength, but it's getting late and it doesn't look like the Giants have any opportunity to rest him up.
The Giants will have to manage these players' injuries the best they can…but it looks like these players will have to put on their warrior hats.
