New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw has grown accustom to playing through pain, so much so that he's prepared to embrace it for the rest of his career.
Bradshaw said he will not have offseason surgery on a cracked bone in his right foot that he's played through during the second half of the season, opting only for rest.
He conceded that dealing with the pain is his new reality, as much as he wishes to return to his early days of good health.
"I pray for it every day," Bradshaw said. "Being a running back in this league, I don't think I will ever be that healthy again. That is the nature of the game."
