Listen LIVE: Giants – Eagles
Running back Ahmad Bradshaw is ready to return to Giants’ starting lineup on Sunday night in Philadelphia as each team looks to maintain at least a share of the NFC East.
Bradshaw suffered a neck injury in New York’s Week 2 win against the Buccaneers and missed all of last week’s game in Carolina.
Expect Andre Brown to continue to see work in the offense after filling nicely – 184 yards on 33 carries -in Bradshaw’s absence, pushing rookie David Wilson to third on the depth chart.
Hakeem Nicks (foot) and CB Michael Coe (hamstring) have been limited in practice, while tackle David Diehl (knee) and defensive backs Antrel Rolle (knee) and Jayron Hosely (hamstring) all missed practice Thursday.
Domenik Hixon (concussion) believes he’ll be ready to return on Sunday, but expect Ramses Barden to begin to see more time on the field in light of his monster nine catch, 138 yard performance last week vs. the Panthers.
The Eagles have won seven of the last eight meetings between the two teams, but have looked unimpressive this season – including a loss last week to the Cardinals.
In three games, Michael Vick has been intercepted six times, against three touchdowns, and both of Philly’s wins came by a single point.
The Giants, Eagles and Cowboys – who visits Chicago on Monday night – all have a share first with 2-1 records.
Coverage begins at 8:00 on WIBX 950 for both the Giants – Eagles Sunday night game, and the Cowboys – Bears on Monday night.
