Ahmad Bradshaw: Sprained knee puts status in doubt

Ahmad Bradshaw - USA TODAY Sports

New York Giants' fans, and the New Orleans Saints, got an eyeful of rooking running back/kick returner David Wilson on Sunday. Wilson, coming off his NFC Special Teams Player of the Week performance, might have an even bigger role Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons.

That is because starting running back Ahmad Bradshaw has been diagnosed with a sprained knee. Already dealing with ongoing foot issues, Bradshaw's status for Sunday is uncertain.

"I'm not going to rule him out of anything," Coughlin said today. "I'm not going to talk about the percentages or anything like that. You could speculate on that, knowing full well what the injury is."

Wilson had 13 carries for 100 yards last week, his best day as a running back.

Bradshaw has 869 yards rushing this season and is averaging 4.4 yards per carry. If he can't play the Giants have only Kregg Lumpkin and Ryan Torain, each signed as free agents a few weeks ago, behind Wilson. Chances are after Sunday we will know a whole lot more about where Wilson is in terms of his development.
