The Giants thought they might be without starting LG Justin Pugh on Sunday after he complained of headaches for the past few days, but tests by the team's doctors as well as an independent neurologist concluded that he is suffering from the effects of dehydration and the heat from last weekend's trip to Tampa, not a concussion.
Pugh did not practice Wednesday and was listed with an "illness" as the cause.
LB Devon Kennard ran the defensive huddles for the first time in his career last week and said he expects to do so this week as well. "It's cool," he said. "I like being able to be more in charge and able to help navigate things for the defense" . . .CB Prince Amukamara (pectoral) was limited in practice but did not participate in any contact drills. He may wait until after next week's bye to return . . . TE Larry Donnell wore teammate Daniel Fells' practice jersey Wednesday and said he will continue to do so for the rest of the season. Fells is on IR after battling MRSA. He had an eighth surgery last week and Donnell said the expectation is it will be the last of the procedures. As for Donnell, he was limited with a neck injury.
