Giants fans had to holding their breath when they saw running back Ahmad Bradshaw walk into the locker room one series into Saturday's game versus the Jets. Fortunately, the reason why he left had nothing to do with this oft-injured feet. More fortunately, the injury to his hand isn't considered serious. After X-rays came back negative, Bradshaw was diagnosed with a right hand contusion. A cyst on that hand popped when it was hit by the helmet of a Jet.
"I've had it for a while," Bradshaw said of the cyst. "We didn't know what to do with it. It's still there and then on one of the runs I hit it on someone's helmet, and it just popped. There was a little pain in it. It feels good. We're just being precautious about it."
It's nice that this won't be a cause for anxiety going forward. But I still don't trust Bradshaw's fragile footsies to hold up for a full 16 games. He is FFToolbox's No. 14 RB, but I'd probably move him down toward No. 17 or No. 18 just because of those feet. If you do take a chance on him, make sure you make room for David Wilson . He would likely get the majority of the touches if Bradshaw were to go down. D.J. Ware would be in the mix as well.
