EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw will undergo a battery of tests as the team conducts medical examinations over the next two days before taking a break during their bye week.

Bradshaw said he underwent X-rays on Sunday but would not divulge on which area, other than to say it was not on his surgically repaired feet.

A league source told ESPN that the X-rays were on Bradshaw's neck.

Bradshaw suffered injuries to his hand and neck earlier this season.

"He'll probably have every test known to man here in the next couple of days," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Monday. "We have a big medical day with our players. Today and tomorrow, they will be visiting the hospital and getting MRIs and whatever.

"The whole goal right now would be to rest and have people healthy so that we can come back and be prepared to practice fully next week."

Bradshaw has been held to one practice per week as he manages pain in his foot, a routine he has followed in past seasons as well.

"We've been down this road with Bradshaw many, many times," Coughlin said. "But until I am told any different or he tells me any different, we will just plan on him playing the same percentages going forward."

Coughlin said he believes defensive tackle Markus Kuhn has suffered an ACL injury that could end the rookie's season. Kuhn suffered a knee injury in the second half of the Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

"The poor kid has got an ACL injury," Coughlin said. "I haven't seen anything really official (yet)."

Coughlin did not offer any more detail on wide receiver Domenik Hixon, who left the game after one catch due to an ankle injury. Safety Kenny Phillips (knee) and linebacker Jacquian Williams (knee) may return after the bye week in time to play against the Green Bay Packers.
