From the start of the season, it was clear New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw was hobbled. As it turns out, that stemmed from a decision following the 2011 season to delay surgery on his right foot; instead, going the route of stem cell treatment. However, that surgery was delayed no longer following the conclusion of the 2012 season, and Bradshaw revealed on Saturday that he underwent a successful procedure to remove and replace a screw in his right foot.
"What I should have done instead of getting the stem cell [treatment] last year was get the old screw out and put a new screw in, just like I did [two weeks ago]," Bradshaw said. "This is very-well needed. The doc said everything went well after the fact. It is something that I should have gotten last year."
Bradshaw added that the stem cell treatment wore off early in the season, but he "fought through" two fractures. The newly inserted screw stabilizes both.
As far as his contract goes, Bradshaw acknowledged that he would like to return to the Giants, but understands this is a business and the team may be cash strapped.
“I can’t say it’s a concern, but there’s always a chance of me not being back next year,” Bradshaw said. “With David there, Andre, now they may have what they’re looking for and they may be light on cash. I haven’t heard anything and they haven’t said anything, which is a good sign. I hope to be a Giant no matter what, but you never know what happens in this business.”
Should Bradshaw return in 2013, he will be healed and ready by the start of training camp.
