On the injury front, RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), LB Mark Herzlich (ankle), T Tony Ugoh (ankle) did not practice today.
Limited in practice again today were TE Jake Ballard (knee), RB Da'Rel Scott (knee), DE Osi Umenyiora (ankle, knee) CB Corey Webster (hamstring) was a late add.
"We added Tony Ugoh to the injury report," Tom Coughlin said today. "He rolled his ankle a little bit – wasn’t able to come back and go today. That was practice yesterday. We put Corey Webster on it for a sore hamstring. So we didn’t do much with him today."
The team gave Bradshaw a second straight day off. Perhaps they are conserving his energy for Sunday, but now with the skies expected to be clear, the Giants will most likely continue to pass more than run.
Ballard worked for the second consecutive day and Coughlin appeared pleased with his progress:
"He worked well today. I think he came through it pretty good. We won’t know until tomorrow morning, but I think he did work well today."
The Falcons appear to be clearing up their injury issues as well. Only two players did not practice today: CB Brent Grimes (knee), LB Stephen Nicholas (toe).
WR Harry Douglas (groin), WR Kerry Meier (groin), S William Moore (groin), TE Michael Palmer (knee), RB Jason Snelling (knee), RB Michael Turner (groin) were all limited.
