Ahmad Bradshaw Injury: Updates on Giants RB's Week 12 Status and Fantasy Value

More bad news for Ahmad Bradshaw owners. Bradshaw is officially out, according to NFL.com's Michael Fabiano. This is a crushing blow to Bradshaw owners, but the injury makes Brandon Jacob's value go through the roof.
The Giants would have had a tough enough time with the Saints on Monday Night football with a completely healthy lineup. Coming in at less than 100% presents them with an even more uphill battle.

New York Giants running back looks to be in real danger of missing his fourth consecutive game with a foot injury. While he has been listed as questionable, Giants beat reporter Jeff Roberts reports that Bradshaw looks unlikely for Monday night's game against the New Orleans Saints.
This means that bruiser Brandon Jacobs will probably receive another start, making him a viable RB2 or flex option despite the Giants' recent struggles in the running game.

Bradshaw's status hasn't changed much despite his desire to get back on the field.
According to the Newark Star Ledger coach Tom Coughlin said:
"We’ve waited for Ahmad, and rightfully so,” Coughlin said. “I don’t know they’re going to just give us the green light. When they do and say he can play and take a hit — he’s going to be sore for the rest of the season — and he’ll be able to come back and play the following week, we’ll take that into consideration."
The G-Men will be down to only two running backs if Bradshaw misses action again.
Third-string back D.J. Ware suffered a concussion in the loss to the Eagles leaving Brandon Jacobs and Da'Rel Scott.
They could move to bring former fourth round pick Andre Brown off the practice squad.
More on this to come.

Even though Bradshaw has been confident about returning from his foot injury next week, Giants head coach Tom Coughlin isn't as optimistic. After the running back was ruled out of Week 11, Coughlin said he'll want to see some solid practices before putting Bradshaw back in the lineup.
"I know the position of the medical staff, exactly [and] they are not quite ready to turn him loose," Coughlin said. "When they do that, let’s hope that he can go out on the practice field for a limited amount of plays and the next day be able to come out and do the same thing. Then we will know that he can go into a game and play and hopefully come out of the game."
Both fantasy owners and Giants fans are desperate to see Bradshaw back on the field. However, he still looks questionable. We should find out more once practices start heating up, so stay tuned.
