Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw Recovering From Latest Foot Surgery
Ahmad Bradshaw, who has played his NFL career on a pair of troublesome feet, started his offseason with another surgery.
The Giants running back said he had the screw in his right foot replaced with a larger one 10 days ago and the recovery timetable is 10 weeks.
"It was giving me a little bit of problems, and now I feel a whole lot better," Bradshaw said, after an autograph signing at the NFL Experience. "I just went through too much this year."
Bradshaw had the original screw inserted after the 2009 season, after fracturing a bone in each foot. He suffered another fracture in the 2011 season at a different spot in the right foot, and opted for a stem-cell treatment that encouraged healing instead of surgery last March but Bradshaw said the stem-cell treatment wore off about six or seven games into the 2012 season, which coincides with his foot being added to the injury report after the Week 6 win at San Francisco. The new screw is larger, holding in place both fracture spots.
"What I should have done instead of getting the stem-cell (treatment) last year was get the screw out and a new screw in like I did," Bradshaw said. "This is very well-needed. The doctor said everything looked great after the fact. They said it was something that I should have gotten last year, but you can't look back at it like that. I feel like I feel a little bit better after every surgery."
