Ahmad Bradshaw knows it is not his burden alone to make up for the loss of versatile Andre Brown in the Giants running game, but a broad smile came over his face when asked Friday if he believes he could handle as many as 30 carries Monday night in Washington.
Of course, Bradshaw said. Im not going to put all the pressure on me, but I want to help this team as much as I can. When I get an opportunity, thats what its going to be.
Bradshaw did not practice Friday he doesnt often because of a foot injury that has bothered him since last season but he will be prepared to shoulder more of the offensive burden against the Redskins. He has averaged just 13.8 carries over the past five games since totaling 316 yards on 57 carries in October wins over Cleveland and San Francisco.
Im getting better every week, and I feel great about it. Well just see how it happens during the game, Bradshaw said. Being a divisional game and going back pretty much to home Im from Virginia and a lot of my family is from that area its going to be a very exciting game for me. Im getting a lot healthier now and Im getting more and more excited for the game. Source: New York Daily News Attached Thumbnails
