GIANTS' AHMAD BRADSHAW UNDERGOES "PROCEDURE" TO HELP STRESS FRACTURE IN FOOT (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/03/giants_ahmad_bradshaw_undergoe.html)

"Tom Coughlin said at the NFL Scouting Combine last month he didn't believe
Ahmad Bradshaw would need surgery on his foot. That's apparently still the case,
though the Giants (http://www.nj.com/giants)' running back did
require some form of procedure recently.<div class="entry-content">


Bradshaw underwent that procedure last week to, as a team spokesman said,
"help the healing" of a stress fracture that hampered him last season. The
Giants said the procedure was "not surgery" but declined to provide
specifics.</p>


Bradshaw missed four games in 2011, beginning with the Nov. 6 victory over
the Patriots, after suffering the stress fracture near a screw inserted in a <a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2010/04/ahmad_bradshaw_running_again_a.html">2010
surgery to repair a previous crack in his right foot</a>. (He had surgery on
both feet and his right ankle that year. Last offseason, <a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2011/02/ahmad_bradshaw_says_giants_tol.html">he
had surgery on his left ankle</a>.)</p>


Bradshaw returned to action in the Dec. 4 loss to the Packers and managed the
pain over the final five regular-season games and the postseason. In those nine
games, he ran for 491 total yards on 123 carries and averaged 68 yards per game
in the playoffs. He also scored the game-winning touchdown in Super Bowl XLVI on
a quirky play that left many to wonder <a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/02/giants_ahmad_bradshaw_now_cred.html">whether
he should've taken the easy score the Patriots gave him</a>.</p>


Bradshaw, who turns 26 on March 19, is entering the second season of a
four-year, $17 million contract that <a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2011/08/a_breakdown_of_giants_running.html">includes
$2.5 million guaranteed this upcoming season</a>.</p>


The Giants are in the process of deciding what to do with Bradshaw's
backfield mate Brandon Jacobs, who is scheduled to earn $4.9 million this
season. <a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/02/giants_brandon_jacobs_reps_dis.html">Jacobs
has balked at the team's initial offers</a> to drastically cut his
salary."</p></div>

we need a rb badly. AB is always playing hurt, and BJ can be Mr. Tiptoes sometimes.

Poor guy.

I love his attitude, his persistent toughness. He is one of those rare athletes who you can actually observe WILLING his way for the 1st down or that extra yard.

In this era of the prima donna athletes who sit out multiple games with a sore finger (referring to skill players, not linemen), he provides an example to players on all his opponents' teams, as many have remarked.

But I fear he will spend the rest of his life on one of those Rascals, once his career ends.

Hell, MY feet hurt, every time I read an article like this about him. He IS Mighty Mouse.

That's what scares me. Scott is still unproven, but I just don't see much from Ware.

Improve the o-line and BJ and AB will look much better.

On a scary note, AB's problems with foot bones is insane. I don't know how much longer he'll be able to play. Or at least effectively. Too bad because he's my favorite current Giant.

DJ has been here long enough to know he is not replacing anyone.</P>


</P>


Da'Rel Scott looks like he has the tools, guess he is not learning the playbook as far as blocking the blitz, that is why we don't see him get more shots.</P>


Andre, another work in progess, hasn't he been injured since he got here?</P>


Should take a couple backs in the later rounds and see if they get lucky.</P>

That is why I hope we can work out a deal and keep BJ around. Bradshaw has these foot problems that just do not go away.

I think it's the coolest TD celebration of them all.

And if that's part of his problem with his feet, then he may as well retire today.

it's a need area, Bradshaw will give you 120%, but if he ends up broken, then there's nothing he can do ... Ware knows what to do ... i trust him in key areas of pass blocking and ball security, but he has shown very little in the way of being a dynamic back</P>


i love Brandon, but he has already gone past the average shelf life for a RB, so as harsh as it seems for somebody that has been all about the blue ... either he takes an embarrassing pay cut or we may have to release him</P>


i trust Jerry to do the right thing ...</P>
