Dr. Ahmad Bradshaw speculates that he'll be getting a key offensive peer back in Week 6.

Bradshaw, who is not a real doctor but just plays one on the radio, told ESPN Radio in New York (per Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News) that teammate Hakeem Nicks has suggested he's ready to return on Sunday after missing three weeks due to foot and knee injuries.

"He's tough," Bradshaw said about Nicks on Tuesday. "I think he'll be here this week. He seemed to give me a hint that he would be. If not I think we've got some guys who are going to step up and help us out regardless."

The G-men could really use Nicks this week with the San Francisco 49ers on the schedule. San Fran has given up just three points over the last two weeks and has the NFL's top-rated defense.

On to what else is being talked about in the league's most popular division. 


Dallas Cowboys

Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News writes that Week 6 opponent the Baltimore Ravens have an identity, which is something he believes the Cowboys lack.

ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer looks at the Cowboys' problems with turnovers on both offense (too many) and defense (not enough).


New York Giants

From Jorge Castillo of the Newark Star-Ledger: Antrel Rolle continues to be nagged by the knee injury he suffered from running into a camera on the sideline.

Newsday's Tom Rock writes about how badly the Giants need Chris Canty back.


Philadelphia Eagles

From PhillyMag.com's Sheil Kapadia: One week after replacing Brian Rolle with Adrian Moten, the Eagles are replacing Moten with Jason Williams.

Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News states that turnovers aren't the only reason the Eagles aren't scoring.


Washington Redskins

From Rich Campbell of the Washington Times: Robert Griffin III has been cleared to practice on Wednesday after passing all the necessary tests.

Kent Babb of the Washington Post wonders if this concussion will cause RG3 to alter his approach.
