FB Nikita Whitlock (not injury related), TE Larry Donnell (neck), RT Marshall Newhouse (back), LB Devon Kennard (hamstring/foot), and S Brandon Meriweather (knee) did not practice on Thursday.

Newhouse has yet to practice this week. “(Newhouse is) not going to work today,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin. “He may have some kind of shot or something, so they wouldn’t work him until that’s taken care of.”

Kennard practiced on Wednesday, but apparently suffered a setback. When asked if Kennard came through practice OK, Coughlin responded, “No, he didn’t. He won’t work today.”

OC Weston Richburg (ankle) was limited in practice.

LG Justin Pugh (concussion), DE Jason Pierre-Paul (hand), and DE Robert Ayers (toe) fully practiced.

“Pugh did okay (on Wednesday); he’s going to do more today,” said Coughlin. “We’re going to try to get Richburg with some more snaps today as well.”

Instead of practicing, the Giants will hold a “recovery day” on Friday. The players will select two of six recovery stations, based on seniority. Their choices are massage, yoga, FMS (Functional Movement Screen) exercises designed for the individual, air compression boots, contrast bath (between a hot and cold tub), and self-massage with stick rollers and elastic bands.

The Giants will also have a 45-minute, up-tempo “walk-thru” practice on Saturday that is not open to the media. The Giants play the New York Jets on Sunday.
