Bradshaw returns to practice for Giants

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw returned to practice Friday after missing two days with an ankle/foot injury, a good sign that he'll likely play against the Chiefs on Sunday. Cornerback Aaron Ross and defensive tackle Chris Canty continued to work out on the side, so they'll probably be ruled out for Sunday.

Wide receivers Domenik Hixon (foot) and Hakeem Nicks (knee) were both practicing and it looks like nickel cornerback Kevin Dockery (hamstring) is set to return. I would expect to see Terrell Thomas continue to start in place of Ross and for Dockery to return to his familiar nickel spot. Undrafted rookie Bruce Johnson has done a really nice job replacing Dockery, so I'm sure defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan will try to keep him in the mix.
