Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw Says He Has Inflamed Disc In Neck
Giants running backAhmad Bradshaw is expected to return Sunday against the Eagles from what the team has called a "neck" injury. The Giants running back elaborated today, originally calling it a "bulge" and then expanding to say he has a disc injury, Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger reports.
"Itís pretty much like an inflamed disc, and itís just sitting right on the spinal cord, I guess," Bradshaw said today. "The swelling went down, and I feel fine now. No setbacks, no problems."
But Bradshaw acknowledged that the injury has the potential to flare up when he returns to live game action, he has been sidelined since the first half of the Week 2 win against Tampa Bay. On his last play, he took a hard hit from linebacker Mason Foster that appeared to compress his neck.
"It wasnít one certain hit," Bradshaw said. "I actually took a hit and felt just tingling in my hands. Then it happened again, and thatís when I sat out. I can't say it was one certain hit that it happened. I can't say that it won't happen again, but I'm prepared for it, and I just cant worry about that."
Bradshaw said there is nothing that can be done with the disc other than to let it heal, he was medically cleared by doctors on Monday to return to practice..
