Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw is riding a hot streak right now, but his chances to continue it against the Redskins this week has been complicated by a foot injury.
Bradshaw did not practice for the Giants on Friday, the second time that he’s missed practice this week, and was listed as questionable on the team’s injury report. Matt Ehalt of ESPNNewYork.com reports that coach Tom Coughlin said that Bradshaw did not have a setback, but was sore.
“He worked yesterday, he was a little sore today,” Coughlin said. “We’re trying to get him to a point game day where he’s healthy”
Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks is listed as probable, the latest sign that his health is on an upswing after he missed the three games leading up to last Sunday’s win over the 49ers. He practiced every day this week and should be ready for whatever the Giants need him to do.
Safety Kenny Phillips, defensive tackle Rocky Bernard, linebacker Jacquian Williams and running back Da’Rel Scott were all ruled out for the Giants.
