The New York Giants will play a critical game Sunday afternoon against the Atlanta Falcons without their leading rusher.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin confirmed that Ahmad Bradshaw will not play Sunday due to lingering knee and foot problems.
''It would have been a reach for him to be ready,'' Coughlin said of Bradshaw, who was spotted with his knee heavily wrapped and not participating in any football activities.

But medically, it was the only wise move to keep him out.''
Bradshaw, who has 869 yards and five touchdowns on the ground this season, has played through injury before. But the sprained knee the six-year veteran suffered Sunday in the 52-27 win over New Orleans did not recover in time for him to practice this week.
