New York Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw said he's been working with rookie RB David Wilson on "the little things", like pass-blocking assignments and more importantly, patience, prior to their matchup with the Washington Redskins.
"It's very tough. Coming from college, they just want to get the ball in your hands and you run with it. Here, everybody is a pro, there's great players on defense," Bradshaw told Peter Botte of the New York Daily News.
"I just try to feed him a lot of the little things, that's what he has problems with, the little things … Those are the things I can help him with. He has great vision, great speed, and he's a sponge right now to absorb all the information."
“I’ve been telling (Wilson) all week when I was a rookie I got my first play time when (Ward) went down with a broken leg and I was able to step in and be a huge part of the offense,” Bradshaw said. “I’ve tried to be in his ear and help him out as much as possible. He’s absorbing and learning.”
With Andre Brown down, Bradshaw is ready to carry the load. He still has that pesky foot injury that kept him out of practice Friday, but he thinks he'll be ready to carry the ball 30+ times Monday night.
“Of course,” he said. “I’m not going to put all the pressure on me, but I want to help this team as much as I can. When I get an opportunity, that’s what it’s going to be.”
