The four exercise bikes inside the Timex Performance Center fieldhouse have had a lonely, idle existence for most of the last few weeks. Today, though, during the team's practice, there was actually a line to get on them.
Shaun O'Hara, Ahmad Bradshaw, Corey Webster and Chris Canty were on them when we came in to watch the first parts of practice, and Justin Tuck was off to the side waiting for one of them to free up so he could get his peddles in. Eventually Webster got up and moved to another part of the rehab area and Tuck grabbed his bike.
About the only guy on the pre-practice injury report who was working anywhere close to limited was Osi Umenyiora, who has spent most of the season on that injury report. The others, including Antrel Rolle who was not on a bike, did not appear to be doing anything. Neither Dave Tollefson nor Hakeem Nicks were seen in the fieldhouse. Will Blackmon did a few things with special teams, then headed over and sat down at the hand bike.
