They were 6-2 at the midpoint of the season, despite a bunch of free-agent losses and an infirmary full of injuries. Eli Manning was on his way to joining the MVP conversation. Tom Coughlin was earning praise as a possible NFL Coach of the Year.
Update: When first reported, it looked like Bradshaw could be out for a significant stretch. Now reports are surfacing that his foot injury is not that serious and that he may actually play this Sunday. Stay tuned.
Ahmad Bradshaw was having a pretty good fantasy season so far. While his week-to-week numbers haven't been that stellar, he has managed to find the end zone 6 times and has offset a lack of yardage with a few catches each week, making him an RB1 in PPR leagues.
Brandon Jacobs is inactive for the New York Giants in Week 5. The Giants running back is sidelined with a knee injury and won't be able to suit up against the Seahawks.
Jacobs injured his MCL last week. The extent of his injury is unknown, but there should be more information available early next week to see if he only needs one week off, or if he'll be shelved for longer.
The Giants were the class of the NFC East and a Super Bowl contender last season as late as the fourth quarter of their Week 15 game when they held a 31–10 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles. They were about to roll to their fourth straight win and were getting hot just in time for the playoffs.
