INDIANAPOLIS -- What to expect from the Giants:

Work schedule: Finally, a little normalcy. Sort of. After dealing with Media Day and soaking up some Super-Bowl atmosphere on a day off, the Giants return to work for a full practice on Wednesday.

Media obligations: It kicks off at 10:15 a.m. at the Giants' hotel in downtown Indianapolis. Tom Coughlin will be the first at the podium, followed by DE Justin Tuck at 10:30. At 10:45, the remainder of the team will be available for 45 minutes. Six players will conduct their interviews from risers -- TE Jake Ballard, LB Michael Boley, RB Ahmad Bradshaw, WR Victor Cruz, QB Eli Manning and DE Osi Umenyiora. The rest of the players and coaches will be seated at regular tables.

Storylines: Brash S Antrel Rolle has been talking tough all week, coming oh-so close to guaranteeing a victory. He will draw a large crowd of reporters, all of whom will be trying to get him to channel his inner Joe Namath ... Since this is the first day of practice, the injury situation becomes a story. Unlike the Patriots (see Rob Gronkowski), the Giants don't have any major concerns. WR Hakeem Nicks (shoulder), RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot) and LB Jacquain Williams (foot) are expected to practice ... Wednesday is an important day for game-plan installation. The outcome of a Wednesday practice sometimes sets the tone for the remainder of the week.
