Giants' Bradshaw To Play, Despite Cracked Bone In Foot

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - New York Giants backup running back Ahmad Bradshaw will continue to play despite having a cracked bone in his right foot.

The third-year running back disclosed the injury on Thursday, a day after going to North Carolina to be examined by foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson.

Anderson's diagnosis was the same as the one Bradshaw got from Giants' physicians, a cracked fifth metatarsal. It's a bone that runs along the outside of the foot between the ankle and the toes.

Bradshaw, who has gained 455 yard rushing, has seemingly known about the injury since the spring but has played in pain. He hopes to finish the season, but acknowledged the bone might break. He said he probably will need surgery after the season ends.
