September 21, 2006 New York Giants Injury Report: WR Plaxico Burress (back) did not practice yesterday. “It tightened up before practice,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “I think he’ll work (on Friday). We’re expecting that.” Burress is officially listed as “probable” for the game against the Seahawks on Sunday.

TE Jeremy Shockey (ankle) returned to practice and remains “probable” for the game. “He looked pretty good,” said Coughlin. “Hopefully he’ll make progress again (on Friday).”

“I am very glad the bye week is this early,” Shockey said. “It seems to me I have been very depressed the last couple of weeks, more at myself than anyone else, because I was hurt in a preseason game against the Patriots. I have to move on and get better.” Shockey is not happy that the Giants’ coaching staff played him in the preseason finale.

WR Tim Carter (ankle) also returned to practice. He is “probable.”

WR Sinorice Moss (quad) and S James Butler (knee) did not practice again and remain “questionable” for the game. Moss told the press, however, that he will not play. “I’m not disappointed, I’m frustrated,” said Moss. “You’ve just got to do what you’ve got to do to get back. It’s a strained muscle. You sit down and you rest it.”

Notes and Quotes: Eagles’ PK David Akers, LT Luke Petitgout, and HB Brandon Jacobs have all been fined $5,000 each for the sideline altercation at the beginning of the game last weekend. Akers intends to appeal his fine.

WR Plaxico Burress on his decision to play for the Giants: “I’m just getting started. I couldn’t have made a better decision. I got a tight end that can get up the seam; got a great running back; got a great receiver on the other side of me; got a quarterback who can really be great.”
