Giants’ Beat Writer Practice Reports: The following are brief practice reports provided by the NY/NJ beat writers who cover the Giants:
Injury Report – Carr Practices: Not practicing yesterday were WR Amani Toomer (leg), WR Steve Smith (soreness), WR Plaxico Burress (ankle), S Terrance Stringer (hamstring), OT Adam Koets (dizziness) LB Gerris Wilkinson (knee – PUP), WR David Tyree (knee – PUP), and OL Jonathan Palmer (quad – PUP).
“Toomer had a little swelling in the leg and that is all,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “I don’t think it is anything too much.”
WR Mario Manningham (quad) returned to practice.
DT Barry Cofield revealed yesterday that he had a thumb injury all last season that required surgery this past offseason.
Dahl to Be Re-Signed Today?: According to The Star-Ledger‘s Giants’ Blog, S Craig Dahl will be re-signed by the Giants today. Dahl was waived in late February after he had suffered a knee injury (torn ACL) in the regular-season finale against the Patriots. The Ledger believes S Terrance Stringer (hamstring) will be waived to make room for Dahl. Dahl likely will be limited if signed due to his continuing rehab.
