Michael Boley and Ahmad Bradshaw were the only players on the pre-practice injury report who were not participating in today’s workout. Boley (hamstring) was spending some time on the stationary bike while Bradshaw (foot) was spotted in the weight room doing some upper-body work. Coughlin reiterated that Boley is day-to-day, although the team is obviously preparing to play the Eagles without him. He also said that Bradshaw is improving, but obviously not enough to get on the practice field today.

The one player who was not on the pre-practice injury report who did not seem to be practicing was Justin Tuck. It appeared as if he was not in shells and was not participating in the drills. We’ll get a better idea later when the Giants issue their formal injury report.

As for the others, Mario Manningham (knee) and Aaron Ross (quad) were both working, although Ross was walking a little gingerly at times. Jerrel Jernigan appeared to be fine, and perhaps will earn a new nickname: “Miss One Week J.J.” Prince Amukamara (foot) was also practicing.

A few other notes from Tom Coughlin's press conference: He said he would not believe that Michael Vick is not playing until Sunday when he sees him not jogging onto the field at the start of the game ... He said the similiarities between Vick and Vince Young make it easier to prepare for two quarterbacks ... He mentioned DeSean Jackson -- although not by name -- and noted that he is always back there returning punts. "We know enough about that," he said.
