New York Giants Injury Update: Ahmad Bradshaw, Hakeem Nicks, David Baas Will Meet With Trainers Tuesday

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw, wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and center David Baas will meet with the team's trainers Tuesday to judge their progress and set a rehabilitation path, coach Tom Coughlin said during a Monday conference call with reporters.

"They're improving," Coughlin said today on a conference call with reporters. "Again it's going to end up being how they feel tomorrow and to what extent they can do some things tomorrow, Tuesday, with the trainers."

Bradshaw missed New York's comeback 24-20 victory against the New England Patriots with a stress fracture in his right foot. Nicks missed the game due to a hamstring injury suffered during Week 8, and Baas missed it to nurse a knee injury.

"We're hopeful," Coughlin said. "We have encouraging signs coming out of the training room but I wouldn't go so far as to say what can be expected."

Coughlin said the team will do whatever the doctors recommend in regards to Bradshaw. The running back's availability could depend on his ability to control the soreness.

Cornerback Prince Amukamara traveled with the team for the first time this weekend, but the first-round pick was still listed as inactive.

"There has to be in everyone's opinion the proof, how he's performed on the practice field before we can simply just say he's ready to go," Coughlin said. "He gets better each week and everyone is thinking the time is approaching. There's still some things I think that have to be cleared up on the practice field. When that happens we will welcome him."
