Bradshaw suffered a cracked bone in his foot during the Giants week eight win over the Miami Dolphins. It was originally reported by multiple sources that Bradshaw would be out "indefinitely", but ESPN insider Adam Schefter said Bradshaw "should play" Sunday.

Bradshaw has played in every game this season. He has carried the ball 111 times for 440 yards and five touchdowns, including a three touchdown game against the Seattle Seahawks. He also has 24 catches for 210 yards and a touchdown.

New York Giants Injury Report, Week 9

New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin spoke to the media Friday, confirming that running back Ahmad Bradshaw would not undergo surgery after cracking a bone in his foot. 

Bradshaw missed Friday's practice and is listed as doubtful for Sunday's meeting with the New England Patriots. He is joined on the injury report by a host of other important contributors.

Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is questionable for Sunday amid concerns that he might have a concussion. Pierre-Paul underwent concussion tests after a practice collision resulted in a headache, and missed Friday's practice.

Hakeem Nicks (hamstring) also missed Friday's practice, riding the bike instead. He is listed as questionable for Sunday, as is fullback Henry Hynoski (neck). 

First-round draft choice Prince Amukamara (questionable) will travel with the team this weekend and could see his first game action of the season. He has missed the first eight weeks of the season with a broken foot suffered in August.

Center David Baas (knee) is listed as doubtful.

Ahmad Bradshaw Injury Update: Tom Coughlin 'Will Wait And See'

The Inter-Google has run wild today with speculation about the cracked bone in the foot of New York Giants’ running back Ahmad Bradshaw. There have been reports saying the injury is not serious and Bradshaw will play Sunday against the New England Patriots. There have been other reports that Bradshaw may opt for surgery and miss the rest of the season.

Oh, my! Who to believe? Well, Giants’ coach Tom Coughlin was hardly helpful Thursday during his meeting with reporters, saying only that he “will wait and see.”

“I really don’t know any more than what you have been told,” Coughlin said. “He has had issues in the past and he has played with a crack or whatever you want to call it in his foot. He has played that way in the past and we don’t know what the determination will be just yet. We will wait and see.”

Coughlin did say that if Bradshaw does not play the Giants will try not to change their offense.

“We are going to try to do what we do in our offense,” Coughlin said. “We have been able to do that in the past with both backs, and now Danny Ware will get more work and we will see how that goes.”

In other injury news, Coughlin said that wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (hamstring) is “feeling better” but offered no speculation on his status for Sunday. Coughlin said starting center David Baas (knee) did not practice).
