Giants RB Bradshaw looks to be ready vs. Ravens

Giants RB Bradshaw looks to be ready vs. Ravens

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Ahmad Bradshaw took part in practice on a limited basis Friday, and New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he was encouraged about having the running back for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.

Bradshaw, the team's leading rusher, sat out last week's 34-0 loss at Atlanta after spraining his left knee a week earlier in a win over New Orleans.

``He looked OK,'' Coughlin said Friday. ``As long as he continues to progress the way he has, he should be able to go. He brings a lot to the table in terms of fire and energy. Those are the most important factors. Knowing him, I am not surprised that he's made his way back.''

Bradshaw has 869 yards and five touchdowns this season, and has been battling a foot injury throughout the season, but the left knee injury knocked him out of the lineup. He put on shoulder pads and headed out to practice Friday for the first time in nearly two weeks. He's listed as questionable.

The Giants, Redskins and Cowboys are in a first-place tie in the NFC East at 8-6.

``He's a vital member of this team,'' guard Kevin Boothe said. ``He's our physical, fiery leader. Whenever you get a chance to get him out there, it's good for the team.''

Added tackle Will Beatty: ``Having 44 out there practicing with us is great. ``We just have to make sure he can play Sunday. He knows his own body and knows what he can do. As long as he's healthy, it's all about having him ready. Having him back and healthy is a good feeling.''

While the Giants may get Bradshaw back, they will likely be without defensive end Justin Tuck, who sat out practice for a third straight day with a shoulder injury. Tuck is also listed as questionable.

Coughlin was hopeful to have Tuck back for Friday's practice, but he didn't take the field.

``We're going to have to wait and see on that one,'' Coughlin said. ``I was hopeful he could go, but the medical staff didn't think he should be able to go.''

If Tuck misses the game, then second-year player Adrian Tracy could get the nod.

NOTES: C David Baas (hip/shoulder) and G Chris Snee (hip) were both limited in practice. Both are listed as questionable. TE Travis Beckham (knee) and safeties Kenny Phillips (knee) and Tyler Sash (hamstring) are all listed as questionable, while CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring), WR Reuben Randle (knee), DT Chris Canty (neck) and WR Hakeem Nicks (knee) are listed as probable. Nicks practiced on a limited basis Friday.

Ravens lower concession prices at M&T Bank Stadium ahead of 2018 season

Enjoying a game at M&T Bank Stadium just became a little more affordable.

On Thursday, the Ravens introduced their new "Flock Friendly Fare," reducing the price of 21 of their most popular food and beverage items.  

The change comes as the organization focuses on revamping the fan experience in 2018. Fans will see an average of 33 percent in total savings and up to 53 percent savings on a single item.  

"As a lot of you probably know, after every game we survey fans to see how we're doing; what have we done well and what have we not done well. Over the years, one of the biggest criticisms we received was for the gameday concessions prices," Ravens President Dick Cass said on the team's website

Alcoholic beverages were all reduced by $1 with the addition of domestic 12 ounce beer for $5.

Chicken tenders with fries went from $11 to $7, while a slice of pizza went from $8.50 to $6. No single item will cost above $9.

On average, you will now be able to feed a family of four for $44 compared to $66.75 in years past. To see all of the reductions, click the arrow in the post below. 

In 2017, the Atlanta Falcons reduced their concession prices upon opening their brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The Ravens, however, are expecting to lose $1.5 million in concession revenue due to the change.

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas odds against Lamar Jackson starting for Ravens in 2018

Vegas has spoken and they are not optimistic about rookie Lamar Jackson starting under center for the Ravens in 2018.

Bovado, an online gambling site, has set the odds on how the top 2018 rookies will perform and they have Jackson getting 0.5 starts this season.

That number will come as a surprise considering the popular narrative that Lamar Jackson will be the Ravens' starter in no time. The team made it clear they are planning for life after Flacco when they traded back into the first-round of the 2018 draft to select the quarterback out of Louisville at No. 32

Flacco - who is entering his 11th season with the organization - is experiencing a decline in his performance of late, one that can not be put entirely on his shoulders as the team has failed in finding him valuable weapons to throw to. Nonetheless, Flacco's projected 2018 season is very much up in the air and it appears Vegas is betting on the one-time Super Bowl MVP to bounce back. 

However, the Ravens have failed to make the playoffs four of the last five seasons, and if that trend continues into 2018, the rookie could get his shot at flipping the script.

If you're a betting man, it could payoff to bet the over on Jackson. Low risk, seemingly high reward.
