Another Issue

Just got back from talking to Tom Coughlin, and it looks like RB Ahmad Bradshaw has another ankle issue. This time it's his left ankle, incurred at some point in the second half Sunday.

Coughlin wasn't sure whether Bradshaw would even make the trip to Denver. But he did say Jacobs' backup wouldn't be practicing today. He'll wear a boot, just like he did since early season on the right one.

Coughlin said they knew Bradshaw had sprained the ankle during the game. But the severity of it was a surprise.

"Right after the game, they thought it was an ankle sprain," Coughlin said. "But now it's more severe than that."

Coughlin said that if Bradshaw can't go, Danny Ware is ready and raring to take his carries. Chances are, Gartrell Johnson will be activated as the third running back. But Coughlin was confident Ware would be up to the task, given his key 13-yard run Sunday and a great blitz pickup.

"He did well," Coughlin said. "He's ready."

Now, the question is whether Bradshaw will be ready. If he's not, and if Jacobs re-injures the left knee that forced him out of Sunday's game, Ware will have to take the bulk of the carries.




  1. I think they should give Ahmad the week off, we will need him for the divisional games.

  2. I concur Scott. Ware has ran hard any time he has gotten the chance. I think he should see a good amount of carries, as the offense better focus more on the run game against Denver. This will set up the short, intermediate passing game; thus controlling the clock. Will also keep our suspect defense on the bench.
