Falcons Vs. Giants: Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw Misses Second Practice

The New York Giants are relatively healthy heading into their home playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons. The 9-7 Giants, who locked a playoff position as the NFC East champions by beating the Cowboys at home in Week 17, only sat three players at practice on Thursday. One of those players was running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who didn't practice for the second straight day due to a foot injury. Bradshaw, who averaged 3.9 yards per carry in 2011, missed four games during the regular season, and if he misses the playoff game against Atlanta, he'll be replaced by the much bigger Brandon Jacobs, who averaged 3.8 yards per carry.

Joining Bradshaw on the did-no-practice list was linebacker Mark Herzlich and offensive lineman Tony Ugoh. Everybody practiced other than those three. Four other players were listed on the injury report that practiced but were limited. Those players included tight end Jake Ballard and defensive end Osi Umenyiora. Running back Da'Rell Scott and cornerback Corey Webster were also limited in practice on Thursday.
