With RBs Wilson, Brown ready to go, Giants' backfield preps for life without Bradshaw
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – With Eli Manning running the show and Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks on the outside, the New York Giants' passing game is potent.
Without Ahmad Bradshaw, the running game has become the biggest question mark.
The Giants took a major gamble after last season, releasing the injury-plagued Bradshaw and handing the halfback job to David Wilson and Andre Brown.
New York's 2012 first-round draft pick, Wilson showed a burst of speed out of the backfield last season. He gained 358 yards on 71 carries and scored four touchdowns. Brown, a journeyman, had his best season, rushing for 385 yards. He scored eight touchdowns on 73 carries before breaking his right leg in late November.
Bradshaw led the team in rushing the past three seasons, gaining 1,015 yards in 2012.
