September 14, 2006 New York Giants Injury Report: TE Jeremy Shockey (ankle) practiced yesterday and remains “probable” for the game against the Eagles on Sunday.

RG Chris Snee (ankle) participated in individual drills, but not the team portion of practice. He remains “questionable.”

“I definitely feel a lot better,” said Snee. “On Sunday night, if I put pressure on it, I would collapse. Monday and Tuesday were the same, but yesterday, once the swelling and inflammation went down, it felt a lot better. It’s just a matter of feeling comfortable with the ankle. I’m not going to go out there if I’m going to hurt the team in any way. If I feel good I’ll go.”

As scheduled, LB LaVar Arrington (knee) and LB Brandon Short (knee) did not practice in order to reduce strain on their surgically-repaired knees. Both are “probable” for the game.

DE Adrian Awasom hyper-extended a knee on Wednesday in practice. “He tried to go today, he had a brace on it, but he probably won’t be able to go until next week, I’m sure,” Coughlin said. “I was pleased to see him right back out there. He wasn’t about to miss anything.”

Quotes: OC Shaun O’Hara on the Eagles’ blitzing schemes: “I think a lot of times defenses try to blitz you for a pure intimidation factor. They’re trying to intimidate you into thinking that you can’t do what you want to do in that game or run the plays you want to run. I feel pretty confident that we know what Philly is going to try to do to us. The challenge is on the offense as a whole, not just the offensive line.”
