Joseph Addai, Mewelde Moore, Ryan Torain, and Kregg Lumpkin were among the group of running backs the Giants worked out. The question of Ahmad Bradshaw’s health came into immediate question after Tom Coughlin stated earlier in the week that Bradshaw would undergo “every test known to man” to make sure the starting running back is healthy.
Immediately, questions began cropping up regarding those tests and whether they found something wrong with Bradshaw. That may or may not be the case. The likely scenario is the Giants were just doing their due diligence in case something happens.
Even if the Giants were doing their due diligence it means they are concerned that Bradshaw is close to being out for a lengthy period.
If Bradshaw is hurt or ends up missing significant amount of time for any reason then the Giants will turn to Andre Brown to start.
Nothing is stating that anything is wrong with Bradshaw, however, so don’t worry Giants fans. This is a backup plan. The Giants tend to bring in a variety of players every Tuesday to keep their information up to date and to be able to make a signing quickly if needed.
Adding Addai, Moore, Torain, or any other running back would only be for depth and would not see significant playing time as Andre Brown has impressed coaches with his ability this season and would get the majority of carries.
The Giants are still waiting for David Wilson to improve in pass protection before giving him increased playing time so even if Bradshaw gets hurt he might not see a huge increase in playing time until he gets a handle in pass protection.
