Ahmad Bradshaw RB New York Giants
Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw broke out last year to the tune of 1,235 yards on 4.5 a carry and 8 touchdowns. Now, this year he has hit a little road block to curb his production. The road block being a fractured bone in his foot. In the 7 games he has started this year he has 440 yards and 6 touchdowns - 5 rushing and 1 receiving. While he likely will be out this week, the Giants need him to come back fast as "Fast car" Brandon Jacobs only has slightly over 250 yards rushing at 3.2 yards a pop.
Bradshaw has had his fair share of run ins with the law over his football career. Bradshaw was kicked off of the University of Virginia for running away from the cops and getting charged with underage drinking and resisting arrest. Then during his Junior year at Marshall he was arrested for petty larceny when he stole a PlayStation from a dorm. In 2008, during the offseason after his rookie year, he broke his probation and was sentenced to 60 days in jail. He served 29 immediately and made training camp on time, then served 31 more during the 2009 offseason. Also of note, he was at the club when Plaxico Burress decided to pop a cap in his thigh, however he allegedly was not aware that he was carrying a weapon.
