"We are all hoping and we have to see. He needs to do some things on the practice field. I know the position of the medical staff, exactly, they are not quite ready to turn him loose."
LB Michael Boley (hamstring) is still holding out hope that he can play Sunday, but he has not practiced and is listed as doubtful. LT Will Beatty (back) returned to practice today.
DE Justin Tuck did not practice and is questionable after getting his ankle stepped on yesterday in practice.
Coughlin did not say whether the team planned to activate recently reinstated DT Jimmy Kennedy this week.
Coughlin admitted that Danny Ware, who goes by the moniker DJ, has looked good in practice. He refuses to address him by that name, though.
"You mean Danny. I call him Dan or Danny, just to get him going. Yes and I think so. He is still productive. When you look at the stat sheet, he is still productive. He is a productive guy. The ability to play with more energy and when you need him in that clutch period, he has that extra gear."
Eagles QB Michael Vick, who was rumored earlier to be ruled out of Sunday's game is still listed as questionable on the injury report as is WR Jeremy Maclin.
