September 20, 2006 New York Giants Injury Report: TE Jeremy Shockey (ankle), WR Tim Carter (ankle), WR Sinorice Moss (quad), S James Butler (knee), and HB Derrick Ward did not practice yesterday. Head Coach Tom Coughlin said that tests did not reveal any further damage to Shockey’s ankle. “You play in the game, you get knocked around, somebody falls on it, you set yourself back, you recover and you move forward,” said Coughlin. “That’s kind of the way it’s been for the two games.”

Shockey and Carter are listed as “probable” for the game against the Seahawks.

Moss aggravated his quad injury that caused him to miss most of training camp and all of the preseason. He and Butler are listed as “questionable.”

Ward will not play.

LB LaVar Arrington missed practice due to the death of a grandfather. FB Jim Finn missed practice because his wife was giving birth.

QB Eli Manning Named “NFC Offensive Player of the Week”: QB Eli Manning was named the “NFC Offensive Player of the Week” for his performance against the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday. In that game, Manning completed 31-of-43 passes for 371 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception as the Giants overcame a 17-point fourth-quarter deficit to win 30-24 in overtime. In the fourth quarter and the overtime, Manning completed 21-of-26 passes for 238 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. Manning completed all eight of his passes in overtime.

“It’s an honor, but I don’t know if it’s truly deserving,” Manning said. “We had a lot of players in this last game and stepped up and made some big plays for us. When you get an award like this it’s really an offensive award. It’s for everybody, because for one person to have a good game, the whole team has to play well.”
