Injury Update – WR Plaxico Burress Returns to Practice: WR Plaxico Burress (ankle) returned to practice yesterday. WR Steve Smith (concussion) also practiced.
“This is probably the best I’m going to feel at this point, so I’m going to go out and give it a push,” Burress said. “It’s going to be sore for a while, it’s going to be something I’m going to have to fight through…I’ve got a lot of hard work ahead of me because I’ve missed going into three weeks.”
“(Smith) was cleared (Tuesday) morning and I wanted to make sure he just kept his head out of practice and he did,” said Coughlin. “But he went right back in there, he just jumped right back in and kept going. It was good to have him out there.”
Missing practice yesterday were TE Jeremy Shockey (sore hamstring), WR Sinorice Moss (ankle), CB Sam Madison (hamstring), S Will Demps (elbow), S Michael Stone (hip), DT Jonas Seawright (concussion), OC Grey Ruegamer (ankle), OC Todd Londot (ankle), LB Gerris Wilkinson (knee), LB Barry Robertson (knee), and LS Ryan Kuehl (calf).
Madison said his hamstring pull is not as severe as the one that cost him four games last year, but he said he is not sure when he will return.
Regarding Shockey, Coughlin said, “I dont have an exact time or anything (when he will return). I am not sure. Hopefully as soon as possible.”
“(Sinorice) Moss has got the ankle sprain and I was hoping today, but now they are saying Thursday, maybe and not until then,” said Coughlin.
