October 3, 2012 New York Giants Injury Report – 13 Players on the Injury Report: Not practicing yesterday were WR Hakeem Nicks (foot/knee), WR Ramses Barden (concussion), OC David Baas (hand), OG Chris Snee (hip), DT Rocky Bernard (quadriceps), LB Michael Boley (hip), CB Corey Webster (hand), and S Kenny Phillips (knee).
“(Barden) complained of a headache,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “He asked that he could be evaluated, and they sent him for the evaluation yesterday. I think a lot of the symptoms were okay, but there was enough there for them to slow him down.”
“No (progress on Nicks),” said Coughlin. “He’s not going to practice today…I’m not sure if (his knee is still) swollen.”
“I’ll be fine,” Baas said. “I’ll be back tomorrow. It’ll be good. (Snapping) shouldn’t be an issue. I had two bad snaps and I shouldn’t have had those. It’s not going to be an issue.”
Boley was asked about his hip. “It’s something that’s been ongoing for a little while, so today was just kind of rest it a little bit and get it a little bit better,” said Boley. “I would hope (that I will practice on Thursday).”
OT David Diehl (knee), LB Keith Rivers (hamstring), CB Jayron Hosley (hamstring), and S Antrel Rolle (knee) and were limited in practice.
CB Michael Coe (hamstring) fully practiced.
