Ahmad Bradshaw injury: Giants' running back expected to play vs. Redskins

Expect the Giants running back to suit up Sunday against Redskins.

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw is expected to play Sunday against the Washington Redskins, NFL.com is reporting. Bradshaw, the Giants' leading rusher through six games, is listed as questionable for the 1 p.m. ET start, as he missed Friday's practice with a foot injury.

Bradshaw is coming off back-to-back solid performances. Two weeks ago, Bradshaw ran for 200 yards on 30 carriers in a 41-27 victory over the visiting Cleveland Browns. This past Sunday, the 5'10, 214-pound tailback rushed for 116 yards on 27 carriers in a 26-3 victory at the San Francisco 49ers.

If Bradshaw isn't 100 percent, and the Giants (4-2) need to use a backup Andre Brown and David Wilson will more than likely share the load. Brown has already totaled 198 rushing yards and three touchdowns this season, while Wilson was New York's first-round selection in this year's draft. Wilson has just 87 yards on 15 carries.
