Injury Report – Manningham Has a Concussion: Not practicing yesterday were WR Mario Manningham (concussion), OC Shaun O’Hara (ankle/Achilles), OT Will Beatty (foot), DT Rocky Bernard (back), LB Keith Bulluck (toe), and returner Darius Reynaud (illness).
“(Manningham) really appeared to be fine Monday when we saw him,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “We didn’t expect that there would be any slowdown in his performance (on Wednesday) in practice. There was, so hopefully we can do the tests again and see how that comes out, but we’re a little bit surprised that there’s an issue here.”
When asked how long O’Hara will be out, Coughlin responded, “I was hoping initially that it was a two-week period but I’m not sure now what it is.”
Coughlin was then asked if surgery was an option for O’Hara. “I don’t think so,” replied Coughlin. “We’re hoping it’s not a surgical issue.”
Regarding Bernard and Bulluck, Coughlin said, “Hopefully we’ll get them both (on Thursday).”
LB Phillip Dillard (hamstring) was limited in practice. LB Chase Blackburn (knee) did not appear on the injury report and practiced fully.
CB Michael Coe Added to Practice Squad: The Giants added CB Michael Coe to their Practice Squad yesterday. Coe was waived by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday. He has spent time with the Giants in 2009 before the Jaguars signed him off of the Giants’ Practice Squad that season.
