ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw was active for Sunday’s game at Dallas, the second week in a row he has played despite barely practicing because of a lingering foot injury.
Bradshaw rushed for 43 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries in last week’s victory over the Redskins. He was visibly unhappy with his playing time last Sunday and got into a shouting match with head coach Tom Coughlin.
The Giants were without linebacker Jacquian Williams (knee), safety Kenny Phillips (knee) and defensive tackle Rocky Bernard (quadriceps).
Dallas played its first game without linebacker and leading tackler Sean Lee, who was put on injured reserve because of a toe injury. Bruce Carter started in his place.
Running back DeMarco Murray (sprained right foot) was out for the second game in a row, and Felix Jones started with a bruised knee.
Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware played after missing practice with flu-like symptoms.
