Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw, WR Hakeem Nicks miss Monday's practice

As expected, the Giants were without a couple of important offensive cogs during Monday's practice. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw @AhmadBradshaw has an unspecified neck injury that forced him to miss the entire second half of Sunday's win against the Buccaneers. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks finished yesterday with 199 yards and a touchdown, but also came up limping after a couple of plays. Both of them got the day off Monday. The Giants play Thursday night at Carolina.

Fantasy Analysis:

Nicks got his surgically repaired foot stepped on late in the game, but he gutted it out. He'll probably miss most of the practices during this short week, but I fully expect him to play without limitations Thursday.
Bradshaw's playing status is much more uncertain. It's been reported that he has a neck sprain, but even though he was supposed to undergo an MRI today, the team has yet to confirm anything. Andre Brown @drebrown35 should be picked up right away. My guess is Bradshaw will end up inactive for this game against the Panthers, and if Sunday taught us anything about this backfield it's that head coach Tom Coughlin currently trusts Andre Brown a whole lot more than David Wilson @4stillRunning if he needs someone to carry the ball.
