The prepractice injury report has no surprises. But there's still plenty to dissect.

First of all, let's look at who is NOT on the list. Shaun O'Hara (ankle/Achilles) is apparently all healed and ready to go. And Kevin Boothe (pectoral) will apparently not be practicing. His three-week window to begin practicing starts this week, which will launch a three-week window to put him on the active roster. The addition of tackle Jamon Meredith off waivers this week (he's No. 79, by the way) certainly casts some doubt on whether or not Boothe will ever come off PUP.

Now, for those on the list.

Will Beatty (foot), Keith Bulluck (toe), Madison Hedgecock (hamstring), Brian Jackson (neck), Mathias Kiwanuka (neck), Lawrence Tynes (ankle), Osi Umenyiora (knee), and D.J. Ware (groin).

This may be the first hint we are getting that Kiwanuka will not be practicing. If he was cleared by the second- and third-opinions he received earlier this week, he probably would have just gone out and practiced. There's a possibility he will be limited, of course. We'll get more info from Tom Coughlin on that in about an hour or so.

As for Tynes, surprised to see him there unless it's just a formality. The Giants returned Shayne Graham like a library book on Monday, so they're convinced that Tynes can go forward as their kicker. And how ridiculous will it be to see a kicker listed as limited in practice on the injury report. He's ALWAYS limited!

Osi Umenyiora will continue maintaining his knee injuries with his one day off per week, and that will be today. And all signs pointed to Keith Bulluck practicing this week and getting back on the field against the Cowboys. We'll see how that works out.
