Rex Ryan had his Christmas wish list and it included a long line of players he hopes will not play on Sunday. Well, the Giants are hoping for just the opposite, that their long list will be able to play on Sunday.

After today's Christmas Eve practice, it appears that many will be able to.

Yesterday there were 13 Giants players on the injury list, a bit of an uh-oh for the team heading into a must-win game. But most of them were participating in practice today, including LB Michael Boley (triceps) who was listed as out of yesterday's workout in the projected particiation report and WR Hakeem Nicks (hamstring).

The ones who were not practicing were: Corey Webster, Ahmad Bradshaw, Aaron Ross, Rich Seubert and Kareem McKenzie (although McKenzie did stretch with the team, he didn't participate in any drills that we saw).

We'll have to wait until this afternoon to get the full injury report from the team, but it doesn't sound like many of the guys who were projected as limited in yesterday's jog-through will be in much danger of missing Sunday's game due to injury.
