New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw did not practice on Wednesday, though that should not raise any flags for the 49ers as Bradshaw typically has sat out practice on not only Wednesdays but Thursdays as well of late.Bradshaw, who has not missed a game since Nov. 28, was listed with an ankle injury. He played in a career-low 12 games in 2011 and averaged a career-worst 3.9 yards per carry in rushing for 659 yards on the season, though he had a career-high nine touchdowns.Plus, quarterback Eli Manning left practice early with what was described as a "stomach bug" by coach Tom Coughlin, though he hoped it was a "24-hour deal."
And defensive end Justin Tuck has an achy left shoulder, which could prove problematic since he plays on the left side of the line, protecting that sideline.Following, then, the Giants' practice report for Wednesday as they prepare for Sunday's NFC title game at Candlestick Park against the 49ers:DID NOT PRACTICE -- RB Ahmad Bradshaw (ankle)LIMITED PRACTICE -- LB Mark Herzich (ankle), QB Eli Manning (illness), DE Justin Tuck (shoulder), DE Osi Umenyiora (ankleknee), CB Corey Webster (hamstring).
