September 8, 2006 New York Giants Injury Report: TE Jeremy Shockey (ankle) did not participate in the team portion of practice yesterday. He is listed as “probable” for the game against the Colts on Sunday night.

WR Sinorice Moss (quad) and OG/OC Rich Seubert (toe) practiced again and have been upgraded to “probable” for the game.

“We still don’t know as of right now (if I will play),” Moss said. “Hopefully I can. If I can get an opportunity to play in the game, I really would like that…I feel great, I feel energized. I’m excited to be back. I’m excited to be able to go out there and do things in practice.”

Quotes: DE Mathias Kiwanuka on encouraging the coaches to give him more playing time: “The bottom line is I’m going to get in the game sometime, and if you make enough plays when you’re in there, they can’t keep you on the sidelines. That’s the approach I’m going to take. Preseason was good, but it was just that, preseason. Whether I get four plays or 14 plays on Sunday, if I make something happen every second play, they’re going to notice me.”

DE Michael Strahan on MLB Antonio Pierce: “For some guys, the game just makes sense and (Pierce) is one of those guys it just makes sense to. Jessie Armstead told me about Antonio Pierce, he said, ‘He’s the only guy who played behind me who I felt could probably start in front of me.’ Coming from Jessie, that’s a heck of a compliment. Antonio is the smartest guy, he’ll tell you run or pass, draw or screen, he knows it before it’s gonna happen.”
