1.) WR Victor Cruz (calf) worked on the side during practice. Coughlin said if Cruz practices well, his return will be a "good lift" for the team.
2.) DE Robert Ayers (hamstring) did well on Monday, but he needs to go through a full week of practice to be ready to return.
3.) OT Ereck Flowers (ankle) participated in practice on Monday, but his status for Sunday isn't yet known.
4.) Coughlin spent Sunday watching the games around the league, and took notice of the Cowboys loss to Atlanta.
5.) The Giants' attitude and effort has been good, but they still have to work through some situational issues.
