December 14, 2006 New York Giants Injury Report: OC Shaun O’Hara (ankle – questionable) and LT Luke Petitgout (leg/ankle – out) did not practice yesterday. “I think (O’Hara) improves a little bit day by day,” said Head Coach Tom Coughlin.

DE Michael Strahan (foot – doubtful) performed in some individual drills for the second day in a row. “We are encouraged,” said Coughlin. “He did some work (on Wednesday) and did a little more (on Thursday). It’s always a question of what it’s going to be like the next day. We’re very conservative and reserved in what we say because of that, but it is encouraging that he has had an opportunity to work a couple of days in a row…I would expect that he would do something tomorrow.”

Continuing to practice were RT Kareem McKenzie (neck – probable) and CB Corey Webster (turf toe – questionable). PK Jay Feely (knee) was removed from the injury report.

Quotes: MLB Antonio Pierce on the Eagles’ offense: “That’s what the West Coast offense is. They take their shots when they need to, but they’d rather a little dump-off pass like a run. We know how they play – just give the ball to (HB Brian) Westbrook and (TE) L.J. (Smith) within five yards and make people miss. They haven’t changed anything without (QB Donovan) McNabb. They’ve just kept on rolling.”

DT William Joseph on QB Jeff Garcia: “He wants to get out and scramble and make plays on the run. They’re going to throw a lot to backs, to the tight end, a lot of dump-offs and screens. We have to play more containment. Everybody’s got to be in their rushing lanes, make sure he doesn’t get out of the pocket.”

CB Sam Madison on Garcia: “Garcia’s very poised, making great decisions because of the style coach (Eagles’ Head Coach Andy) Reid has given him. He’s given him the little swing passes, and Westbrook carries a lot of the load. When Garcia has his opportunities, he’s making them count, especially down the field.”
