Time to Sell High on Ahmad Bradshaw?
Oh dear. Just when Ahmad Bradshaw had turned a corner and had piled up over 300 rushing yards over the past two weeks, news breaks that he is once again dealing with unwelcomed foot pain.
According to Raplh Vacchiano via Twitter, Bradshaw is back on the New York Giants’ injury report with a foot injury – one that is said to be the “same type of thing” that has come up with him in the past.
Bradshaw entered 2012 as an injury risk and raised red flags when he hurt his neck a few weeks ago, but was otherwise proving his critics wrong. After missing four games last year with foot issues, the Giants should be concerned that too heavy of a workload could be driving their star running back into the ground.
It’s only week seven and Bradshaw is already missing practice due to a foot problem. Fantastic. If you own Bradshaw, do the smart thing and stash Andre Brown and/or David Wilson. Brown isn’t 100% at the moment, so Wilson may be the first guy up, but both guys could potentially have value if Bradshaw went down for a significant amount of time. This is all likely moot if Bradshaw practices on Thursday, but this still is a sign that he might not be able to withstand such a hefty workload. Keep an eye on the situation, while selling high on Bradshaw before he’s officially injured might not be a bad idea.
