Looking at the list of players who tried out for the New York Giants this week, you have to believe the team is concerned about the health of veteran running back Ahmad Bradshaw.

There were several running backs on the list of the players who worked out for the Giants this week. Those backs are Joseph Addai, Ryan Torain, Kregg Lumpkin and Mewelde Moore.

Addai, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts, was released by the New England Patriots this preseason after failing a physical. He spent six years with the Colts and has 4,453 career rushing yards. Torain has spent time with the Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins during a three-year career. Lumpkin ran 31 times and caught 41 passes for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season. Moore is a nine-year veteran who played six games for Indianapolis this season before being released.

Bradshaw, who has a history of foot and ankle injuries, is again dealing with a foot injury that is limiting his practice time and appears to be curbing his productivity. Coach Tom Coughlin said this week that Bradshaw would "have probably every test known to man" during the team's bye week.

Also working out for the Giants this week were quarterback Curtis Painter, offensive tackle James Carmon, safety Bubba Forrest, cornerback Dante Hughes and linebacker Jabara Williams.
