    BRADSHAW TO MISS MINI-CAMP, OTA'S TO LET FOOT HEAL

    BRADSHAW TO MISS MINI-CAMP, OTA'S TO LET FOOT HEAL

    "New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw will not take part in mini-camp or organized team activities this
    offseason after having bone marrow from his hip injected into his ailing foot,
    the New York Post reported Monday.



    According to the Post, the procedure requires three months of recovery
    time.




    Bradshaw spent much of the past season dealing with a cracked bone in his
    right foot. He told the New York Daily News that while he is able to run,
    he wants to hold off on doing that as much as he can. He also said that he's
    been working out in Miami.






    Before the Giants faced the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI, Bradshaw said he didn't want
    surgery
    this offseason. However, he did end up having a minimally invasive
    medical procedure done in late March, according to the Daily News, that involved having a substance
    known as Mini IGNITE injected into his right foot.




    The five-year veteran has dealt with foot injuries since after the 2010
    season. He had surgery
    on his left ankle
    in February 2011, then had to play through the injury to
    his other foot this past season.




    In 2011, Bradshaw and running back Brandon
    Jacobs
    roughly split the team's carries, with Bradshaw totaling 171 rushing
    attempts and Jacobs tallying 152. But Jacobs was recently
    released
    by the team and signed
    with
    the San Francisco 49ers. Backup
    Andre Brown will have to miss the first
    four games of the 2012 season
    due to a suspension for violating the league's
    ban on performance enhancing substances.




    Bradshaw told the Daily News that he thinks he can take on more carries
    next season, and that he'll miss Jacobs but doesn't see the need for the team to
    acquire an additional back.




    "I am not sure who they will bring in," Bradshaw told the Daily News. "Hopefully nobody."

    He's played his heart out for years with two bad feet. If this procedure works, he may have a break out season. Here's to medical science [B]

    It is very possible that I am very pessimistic when it comes to bradshaw...I like the fiesty nature of his game but honestly this kid has Frankenstein feet. I highly doubt he will be capable of a "break out" season in 2012. The fact that he misses so much training/practice time has to catch up to him at some point. His production was everything short of spectacular last year! I like him as a player for the Giants and if he was healthy, he makes a tremendous asset. My faith does not rely on that though.

    Focusing on a RB in the 1st or trade down in the second must be a likelihood for the 2012 draft...with another coming in the later rounds and no doub we bring in another undrafted rookie at RB.

    We don't have extraordinary talent at RB. I believe the O-Line will be improved over the 2011 unit, though mostly position adjustments and talent from within the organization. Not to mention a full offseason together should help alot.
    The RB situation must be top priority. Other than that I think this team is ready for a title defense.

    RB in the first two rounds is an absolute must. Bradshaw will basically never practice again and one play and he could be done for weeks at a time. Doug Martin or David Wilson please.

    Feels like 2009 again.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

    Bradshaw can't go a full season and let's face it he's in the runoff gravel pits of his career's airstrip, time to start thinking about the future and enjoy whatever he's got left.

    after reading this news about AB's foot procedure I doubt if Reese can fail to bring in a quality RB for insurance either through FA or the draft....
