ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin was unaware Thursday of a report in a Virginia newspaper that running back Ahmad Bradshaw would have to serve another 30 days in jail after the NFL season because of an old probation violation.
The second-year running back was released from the Abingdon (Va.) Regional Jail on July 13 after serving most of a 30-day sentence.
Quoting jail sources, The Bristol Herald Courier reported Thursday that the incarceration was the first of a two-part jail sentence sandwiched around the upcoming NFL season.
Bradshaw has refused to talk with the media since reporting to training camp at the University at Albany. Charles A. Stacy, his attorney, did not return a telephone call left by The Associated Press on Thursday seeking comment.
Stacy has said the underlying charge for which Bradshaw was placed on probation stems from an offense that occurred while Bradshaw was a juvenile.
Coughlin said Bradshaw has worked hard since reporting to camp.
``He's been one of the most excited people to be here,'' Coughlin said after practice Thursday. ``He's a happy guy, and no matter what you ask him to do, whether it is the scout team or special teams, whatever it might be, he's responded in a positive way to everything.''
A seventh-round draft pick last season, Bradshaw played in 12 games and rushed for 190 yards on 23 carries, including an 88-yard touchdown run against the Bills in a playoff-clinching win in Buffalo. The 22-year-old was New York's leading rusher in the playoffs with 208 yards and a touchdown.
