The Giants are practicing at nearly full strength this week. CB Aaron Ross returned to practice yesterday after a concussion scare. RB DJ Ware (concussion) was not so fortunate. He was not cleared to practice and is day-to-day. RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) took the day off with a sore back and LB Mark Herzlich is still not ready.

Ross said he felt good right after his collision, but the team still had to have him checked out. The Giants used new sideline technology on both him and Ware Sunday. Neither returned to the game.

The Giants' receivers were able to dent the Packers' secondary in their first meeting on Dec 4th. ?TE Travis Beckum, who broke out with a 67-yard TD catch, believes they can build on that success.
