Running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who has carried the ball 57 times the past two weeks, did not practice Wednesday because of what the team is calling a "foot issue." Bradshaw, of course, has missed both practice and game time in the past because of recurring foot and ankle issues.
Coughlin seemed to give a bit of a testy answer when asked if Bradshaw's workload contributed to the foot issue.
"Well, he certainly wasn't sitting around Sunday afternoon with his foot up. He definitely has played well, played hard, gotten the ball a number of times, and we'd like to think he can keep on doing that," Coughlin siad. "I don't want to go into that one-practice-a-week business that we've had. So, I'm hoping that this is something that he is able to overcome."
