Ahmad Bradshaw practices, Justin Tuck doesn’t

The Giants wanted to see if running back Ahmad Bradshaw could practice on Friday after missing the first two days this week so they could get a better gauge of his chances of playing on Sunday against the Ravens.

Their wish was granted as Bradshaw, who missed last week’s 34-0 loss to the Falcons with a sprained knee, was on the field for Friday’s session. Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger reports coach Tom Coughlin said he and the medical staff feel good about Bradshaw’s chances of playing although they’ll still need to see how he responds to his first on-field action in almost two weeks.

Bradshaw is listed as questionable, as is defensive end Justin Tuck. Tuck didn’t practice on Friday, however, which means he wasn’t able to practice at all this week because of a left shoulder injury. Coughlin said that trainers felt it was not in Tuck’s best interest to practice, which isn’t a particularly positive sign for his chances of playing.

Tuck was the only Giant to miss practice entirely Friday. Center David Baas, safety Kenny Phillips and guard Chris Snee are also questionable. Cornerback Prince Amukamara, who didn’t play last week, is probable with a hamstring injury.
