November 17, 2006 New York Giants Injury Report -– Tyree Now “Questionable”: WR David Tyree did not practice yesterday due to a groin injury and is officially listed as “questionable” for the game against the Jaguars on Monday night.

Also not practicing were DE Michael Strahan (foot – out), DE Osi Umenyiora (hip flexor – doubtful), LB Brandon Short (quad – questionable), CB Sam Madison (hamstring – doubtful), and LT Luke Petitgout (leg – out).

When Head Coach Tom Coughlin was asked if Short would play, he replied, “No, but he feels better every day. He didn’t practice today, but he feels…He’s out here running. You probably saw him running in pre-practice. He runs all over the place, so he’s getting closer… He’s not ready to come back, but he does seem to make progress. They thought for awhile that he might make it this week, but he just couldn’t quite get back.”

Continuing to practice were LB Carlos Emmons (groin – questionable) and WR Sinorice Moss (quad – questionable). When Coughlin was asked if Moss would play, he merely said, “We’ll see. We’ll see.”

Quotes: WR Plaxico Burress on helping out QB Eli Manning: “We need to protect him up front – that’s the biggest thing right now. Get him in the position where he feels comfortable so he feels that he can deliver the football. We need to protect him so he can feel comfortable and so he’s not rattled early. When he gets rattled early, it kind of throws us all off…We all need to help (Manning) out. We all need to rally around him. And we just have to all just concentrate on the little things that are slowing us down from reaching our potential.”

WR David Tyree on helping out QB Eli Manning: “We didn’t play well in the passing game top to bottom (against the Bears). Us receivers could have run routes better, we could have blocked better, and Eli, he knows what he has to do. It’s important for all of us to pick up the slack.”

CB R.W. McQuarters on CB Corey Webster: “Look, Corey’s a playmaker. You look at the games, he really hasn’t given up anything deep. I know he’s given up some third downs and 20-yarders, and you wish it didn’t happen as a defense. But ultimately he’s a good player. He’s just in the process of learning. That’s how you grow up.”
