In the past couple of games, the New York Giants have looked like the team we got used to seeing under Tom Coughlin. They’ve been running the ball much more effectively and playing great defense, which will translate to success in the playoffs if they can continue this trend for the rest of the season. They will need the ground game working when they take on the Washington Redskins this Sunday so they can keep Robert Griffin III off the field.
They may have to do so without their best running back, Ahmad Bradshaw. Bradshaw is listed as questionable after going through limited practice to rest a sore foot. That’s the last thing Giants fans want to hear from a guy with chronic foot problems his whole career.
The Giants are optimistic and expect him to play this week, but his status remains a game-time decision.
Hakeem Nicks was also limited some in practice this week but seems to be coming along nicely. He made it through most of the game this past Sunday, with only a few hiccups here and there. He is officially listed as probable and should play. The Giants lost both games to the Redskins last year and should not take this game lightly. Hopefully they are at as full strength as possible.
Some players that have already been ruled out are Rocky Bernard, Kenny Phillips, Jacquian Williams and Da’Rel Scott. Michael Boley is also questionable, and Andre Brown and Corey Webster are both Probable.
