September 21, 2007 New York Giants Injury Report: WR Plaxico Burress (ankle) practiced on a limited basis. He is “questionable” for the game and it will be a game-time decision on whether he plays or not against the Redskins. “He was limited,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “He did some things. He didn’t complete the full practice, but he did a few things and we will see. It is going to be one of those deals depending on how he feels on game day.”
“I hurt it so long ago (and) it’s just nagging,” said Burress. “It may be something I’m just going to have to play with for a while, you know? I’ll try to get as much treatment on it as I can and when I get a chance to rest it, I’ve got to rest it.”
QB Jared Lorenzen (ankle) practiced fully for the first time all week and is listed as “probable” for the game.
Also practicing and “probable” are CB Kevin Dockery (ankle), WR David Tyree (wrist), and LB Gerris Wilkinson (knee).
HB Brandon Jacobs (knee) and WR Steve Smith (scapula) did not practice all week and will not play.
