Giants RB Bradshaw could play vs. Saints

New York Giants running back Ahmad participant in practice again Friday but could still be available to play Monday night in New Orleans.

Bradshaw has missed the last three games since suffering a cracked bone in his foot during a Week 8 win over Miami.

But head coach Tom Coughlin said the fifth-year back was able to do some running Friday and responded somewhat positively when asked if Bradshaw and linebacker Michael Boley (hamstring) were possible to play against the Saints.

"Right now they are, yes," Coughlin said.

The Giants are 1-2 since Bradshaw went down, beating New England but losing two straight games to San Francisco and Philadelphia. They trail first-place Dallas by a half-game in the NFC East after the Cowboys won on Thanksgiving.
