Ahmad Bradshaw returns to practice


For the first time in more than a month, Giants running Ahmad Bradshaw practiced on Friday despite his foot injury.

That bodes well for Bradshaw’s return to the lineup against the Packers, but his status for the game is officially questionable because of his foot injury. The Giants remain as banged up as ever.

Linebacker Mark Herzlich and defensive end Osi Umenyiora are both out. Wideout Mario Manningham is doubtful after not practicing this week.

Linebacker Michael Boley is questionable; his return would help a badly overmatched linebacker group.  Hakeem Nicks practiced Friday and is probable.
