Ahmad Bradshaw plans to play Sunday

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Starting running back Ahmad Bradshaw intends to return from a four-game absence when the New York Giants play host to the unbeaten Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

"I feel good," Bradshaw said Wednesday. "I plan on playing."

Bradshaw broke a bone in his foot on Oct. 30. The Giants (6-5) averaged just 76.5 rushing yards per game, on 3.15 yards per carry, in November. They have lost three consecutive games.

Bradshaw isn't likely to practice this week.

"I don't want to," he said. "I wanna be as healthy as I can on Sunday.

"Maybe I'll try to run a little bit this week and see how it feels. Then Friday, if I can get out there and practice a little bit, maybe so. I just wanna be healthy toward the end of the week, so when Sunday comes there's not a lot of pain and I can rest the bone."

During a blowout loss in New Orleans on Monday night, Brandon Jacobs gained 46 yards on 13 carries, and D.J. Ware rushed five times for 23 yards.
