Injury Report – Manningham Returns to Practice: Not practicing yesterday were OC Shaun O’Hara (ankle/Achilles), OT Will Beatty (foot), DT Rocky Bernard (back), and LB Keith Bulluck (toe).
WR Mario Manningham (concussion) returned to practice and practiced fully. “He did well (on his test Wednesday morning),” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “At this point, yes (he will play on Sunday).”
“(Bulluck) came out but he had a lot of discomfort so he didn’t (practice),” said Coughlin. “Turf toe – sore toe.”
“I tried to go and I couldn’t go,” Bulluck said. “If I could have went, I would have went.”
When asked about O’Hara, Coughlin responded, “Nothing. I don’t have any news for you at all…I don’t know (if he will play on Sunday), we’ll see. It is getting late in the week. It would have to be something very good that would have to happen in a short amount of time.”
Returner Darius Reynaud (illness) returned to practice. LB Chase Blackburn (knee) and LB Phillip Dillard (hamstring) fully practiced.

Quotes: Bill Parcells on Head Coach Tom Coughlin: “I’m a big Tom Coughlin man. I’m a big fan of Tom’s, and I know what kind of coach he is. Nobody has to tell me, I know. And I’m not interested in what the naysayers or other people say about him. I think he’s a good man. I think he’s proved to be a sound coach over the years. He’s taken the team to a championship. Hey, we all come on rough times once in awhile, but I have every confidence in Tom.”
