When Ahmad Bradshaw went down with a neck injury, many New York Giants fans wondered how they would replace their starting sixth-year running back. Well, backup running back Andre Brown answered those concerns last Thursday running for 113 yards and two touchdowns. This has led many to question whether Bradshaw's workload will change. While Bradshaw respects his backup's ability, he still expects a similar workload.
"I expect to. It's not going to change," Bradshaw said.
While Bradshaw claims to not be worried about losing playing time, he certainly respects Brown's ability.
"Andre and David are great backs, they complement me well," Bradshaw stated. "Dre just needed a little confidence and he got it last game."

Bradshaw said he is ready to go for Sunday's game.
"I feel great. No symptoms at all, nothing," Bradshaw explained. "Lets me know that I'm going to be prepared for this week."
Bradshaw knows his return to the lineup comes during an important matchup for the Giants, a game against the NFC East rival Philadephia Eagles.
"They're right up the street from us. It's like a backyard brawl. That's just how we take it," Bradshaw said.
