New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw missed Friday's practice, his second this week with a foot injury he sustained several weeks ago. In fact the lone participation that Bradshaw took part in this week was limited work on Thursday.
However this has largely been his routine since the Week Six injury against the San Francisco 49ers. Bradshaw is currently listed as questionable.
Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick spent the first half of the season rehabilitating his knee, finally making his NFL debut against the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
Though he didn't take part in any defensive snaps, he participated during 10 special teams plays, generating a tackle and an offsides penalty following BenJarvus Green-Ellis' fourth quarter touchdown (Nugent kicked it for a touchback after the penalty anyway).
Kirkpatrick showed on the team's injury report on Thursday with a thigh, limiting him during practice. Also linebacker Dan Skuta was another Thursday arrival.
Yeah I'll play," said Nicks. "[Resting until after the bye] was never a thought, at least not on my behalf." After a little early-week "puffiness," the swelling in Nicks' knee has subsided. The receiver has been told by the medical staff that he's running better every week. Of his disappointing fantasy production of late, Nicks replied, "Stats are for girls."
