Bradshaw doesn't practice at the start

Ahmad Bradshaw was not on the practice field for about the first 30 minutes of practice before emerging out of the team complex and walking to join his teammates with helmet in hand.

Bradshaw, who may have been inside getting treatment or undergoing more tests, said on Wednesday that he would practice today. The running back did not participate in practice yesterday due to a sore ankle and it doesn't appear he will do much at all on Thursday.

Head coach Tom Coughlin will give an update later in the afternoon after practice.

Center Adam Koets, who has an MCL injury, did return to practice. But starting center Shaun O’Hara was not on the field during the media portion.

Safety Kenny Phillips (knee) and defensive end Osi Umenyiora (knee) both practiced after taking Wednesday off to rest for precautionary reasons.

Fullback Madison Hedgecock (hamstring) and linebacker Keith Bulluck (toe) also were out for the second straight day.
