The Giants' running backs had a busy day Monday, each with a very different to-do list.

While Ahmad Bradshaw underwent an MRI on his injured left knee, David Wilson got to work answering all of the phone calls and texts he received after Sunday's breakout game against the Saints in which he set the franchise record for all-purpose yards (327) and scored three touchdowns in historic fashion.

"I got the same amount of texts and calls I did on draft day," Wilson said. "A lot of people were happy for me and I appreciate their support."

Bradshaw, meanwhile, had his left knee added to his list of injuries, which this year has included a hand, a foot and his neck.

"Any time you are talking about a knee and you're going through a series of tests, you're better off to wait and see what the results are," Tom Coughlin said.

Missing Bradshaw for any amount of games would be difficult for the Giants, but at least they'd have Wilson ready to assume the larger role after Sunday's performance.

Prince deals with injury

Prince Amukamara strained a hamstring late in the Saints game and Coughlin said he is unsure how much time, if any, he'll miss. "We're going to have to see where he's at," Coughlin said. "He's been treated and he'll continue to be treated. We just have to see the severity of it as we go along this week."

Giant steps

The Dec. 23 game against the Ravens in Baltimore has been flexed from 1 p.m. to a 4:25 p.m. kickoff on Fox . . . Coughlin said he saw some "real quickness, similar to what we're used to" from Hakeem Nicks on Sunday, but he added that Nicks likely won't be at full capacity again this season.
