The Giants’ injury situation remains status quo.
That’s a good thing for Osi Umenyiora (ankle) and Mario Manningham (knee), neither of which apparently suffered any setbacks in their recoveries to the point where they were unable to practice for a second straight day.
Not so good for Jake Ballard (knee), who was not practicing and actually appeared to be doing even less than he was yesterday. He did some light running on Wednesday, but today he was catching passes from Eli Manning as a stationary target.
As for the others, we had a good idea they would not practice. Hakeem Nicks (hamstring) basically said he’s aiming for Friday to get on the field. Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) normally goes just one day a week, and Friday is the most likely time for that. And Mark Herzlich (ankle) was doing some stretching but clearly won’t be ready to play for at least another week.
That’s assuming the Giants have another week left.
