Oh, and here are a few injury updates from practice:
Darius Reynaud and Madison Hedgecock, both missing time in recent weeks with hamstring issues, appeared to be working. Whether or not they wind up as limited of full participants will be known later. But they were moving around, Reynaud more so than Hedgecock.
David Diehl and Shaun O’Hare were both in the weight room while the team was practicing.
“There’s no news that you’re looking for or that I’m looking for,” Tom Coughlin said of updating the condition of the two starting offensive linemen. “Doing well, feeling good,” he said, mimicking what the players tell him. Then he looks at the list. “Okay, they’re not practicing today.”
Steve Smith was with the linemen in the weight room. So was Jim Sorgi, who we haven’t seen in these parts for some time.
Osi Umenyiora was the only player on the exercise bikes during practice (although Keith Bulluck did stop by for a few peddles, but that appeared to just be to loosen up his legs). Dave Tollefson, Gerris Wilkinson, Will Beatty, Kevin Boothe and Kevin Boss all appeared to be practicing fully.
