September 15, 2006 New York Giants Injury Update: The only Giant not able practice yesterday was HB Derrick Ward (foot).

TE Jeremy Shockey (ankle), RG Chris Snee (ankle), LB LaVar Arrington (knee), and LB Brandon Short (knee) all practiced. Snee remains “questionable” and will be a game-time decision. Shockey, Arrington, and Short are “probable.”

“I took about half the reps (yesterday) and it felt good,” said Snee. “(On Thursday) I did some things and it felt decent and it felt pretty good (yesterday). I’ve said all along that I’m preparing to play and I haven’t heard either way.”

New York Giants and Dr. Joel Goldberg Set to Part Ways: The Bergen Record is reporting that the New York Giants will part ways with Dr. Joel Goldberg, their director of counseling services, after the 2006 season. One of Goldberg’s chief functions with the Giants was to evaluate the personalities of collegiate prospects. The team will use another personality profiling service for the 2007 NFL Draft. Goldberg joined the Giants in 1981 and developed the team’s infamous 400-question personality test for potential draft picks.

Quotes: Eagles’ Defensive Coordinator Jim Johnson on the Giants’ offense: “The Giants likely have the most skilled players our defense will face, except for in training camp when we faced ours. They’re such a balanced team right now. You think all you want to do is stop Tiki, which you do, but you’ve got Amani Toomer out there, you’ve got Plaxico, you’ve got Shockey and you’ve got an outstanding young quarterback I’m not sure we haven’t gone against a better team in the league lately…Tiki is an amazing guy. He’s still healthy, he still plays at a high level and he’s smart. And Eli is getting smarter every year, too. When you (defend) people like that, you have to kind of mix it up and do some better things and better disguises.”

Eagles’ FS Brian Dawkins on HB Tiki Barber: “You probably can pull up some tape from me from years past, but I’m going to say this and I’ll keep saying it, the cat that makes that team run is Tiki.”
