Despite rumors to the contrary, Ahmad Bradshaw’s foot isn’t improving.

And before the running back will be given the opportunity to play through the pain, Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said he needs to see a change in his condition.

As of now Bradshaw is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s Giants-Patriots game due to the stress fracture in his right foot.

“The doctors felt that it wouldn’t be necessary to have surgery right now,” Coughlin said, referring to Bradshaw, who played with stress fractures in both feet in 2009.

That same year, the 25-year-old running back had screws inserted in both feet to stabilize the bones. But Coughlin said the screw in his right foot is not causing the problem.
