Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw has hand contusion

Giants fans had to holding their breath when they saw running back Ahmad Bradshaw @AhmadBradshaw walk into the locker room one series into Saturday's game versus the Jets. Fortunately, the reason why he left had nothing to do with this oft-injured feet. More fortunately, the injury to his hand isn't considered serious. After X-rays came back negative, Bradshaw was diagnosed with a right hand contusion. A cyst on that hand popped when it was hit by the helmet of a Jet.
"I've had it for a while," Bradshaw said of the cyst. "We didn't know what to do with it. It's still there and then on one of the runs I hit it on someone's helmet, and it just popped. There was a little pain in it. It feels good. We're just being precautious about it."

Fantasy Analysis:

It's nice that this won't be a cause for anxiety going forward. But I still don't trust Bradshaw's fragile footsies to hold up for a full 16 games. He is FFToolbox's No. 14 RB, but I'd probably move him down toward No. 17 or No. 18 just because of those feet. If you do take a chance on him, make sure you make room for David Wilson @4stillRunning. He would likely get the majority of the touches if Bradshaw were to go down. D.J. Ware @DJDannyWare28 would be in the mix as well.
