David Wilson May Get First Start Against Falcons
Excerpt: "David Wilson's breakout performance thrilled the Giants on Sunday. Now it looks like they're going to need him to do it again.
The rookie running back may have to make his first NFL start in Atlanta this Sunday because Ahmad Bradshaw's status is in doubt due to a sprained left knee. Bradshaw suffered the injury in the Giants' 52-27 win over the Saints, and he will not practice with the Giants on Wednesday.Tom Coughlin declined to say if Bradshaw had a chance of playing against the Falcons, but he didn't make it sound like the chances were very good.
"I'm not going to speculate because of the toughness of this young man, how long it would be," Coughlin said on Wednesday morning. "He's very positive about it. He definitely wants to get back as fast as he can.
"I'm not going to rule him out of anything. I'm not going to talk about the percentages or anything like that. You can speculate on that knowing full well what the injury is."
Bradshaw has been bothered by a series of injuries this season, including to his neck, hand and foot, but he has not missed a game all season. Along the way he's rushed 196 times for 869 yards and five touchdowns, helping the Giants rushing attack – the NFL's worst last season – rise to 15th in the league (116.4 yards per game)."
