N.Y Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw claims his broke foot is feeling miles better but he still is expecting to miss all organized team affairs and minicamp as he gets over an injection in his right foot. Basketball lines

Bradshaw claimed he had bone marrow taken from his hip and injected into the troublesome foot to help the bone heal quicker. He said the ordinary advancement time for the procedure is 3 months and Bradshaw intends to be well placed to fully participate in training camp in Aug.

“I feel great,” Bradshaw asserted at the opening of the NFL’s pop up store in Manhattan. “I got the injection in Feb. I feel tremendous after a month. At this time I’ve a lot of conviction that I am going to be able to simply be a pound-for-pound back and just hold my own.

“I probably can (run now) but I’m really not going to try for 2 or 3 months more,” he added. “I just want to rest as much as I am able to. When training camp comes, I want to train every week and start the season off right.”

Bradshaw carried the ball just 171 times for 659 yards and 9 touchdowns in 2011. He missed 4 games after experiencing a stress fracture related to a screw that had been placed in his right foot from a 2010 surgical treatment. Basketball betting lines

He played in the last 9 games, including the Giants’ run to a Super Bowl title, with the fracture.

Bradshaw was given the option of the injection or having the screw replaced, but after having surgeries on both of his feet and ankles during the past, Bradshaw settled on the injection.

Bradshaw is expecting to carry the ball more with the exit of backup running back Brandon Jacobs, who signed with San Francisco last week after being released by the Giants.

The Giants have only running backs D.J. Ware, Da’Rel Scott and Andre Brown behind Bradshaw, but Brown was recently left hanging by the league for the 1st 4 games of the 2012 season for violating the league’s policy on performance-boosting substances.

Bradshaw is assured that he can increase his workload and come back to his 2010 form when he carried the ball 276 times for 1,235 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Tom Coughlin has declared that he wants to stay to the design of having a bigger back complement Bradshaw if Jacobs left. Bradshaw asserts he is assured the group of running backs the team has can get things done.

He in addition plans on becoming more of a leader in the locker room to help fill the leadership void left by Jacobs. Jacobs was perhaps the most vocal player on the team, delivering passionate and fiery on-field talks to the team before each game.

“I have often considered myself a leader on this team,” Bradshaw said. “Just being a vocal leader on the team at times, I’ve had the respect from my squad to be in a position to speak up and state what I believe should happen. I just plan on doing that a little bit more this year.”
