Injury report: Ross out of cast

CB Aaron Ross is no longer in a cast. Ross continues to rehab his torn plantar fascia and his status is still unknown for the season opener against Carolina.

TE Travis Beckum did not practice today with a neck issue that flared up after he practiced on Monday. Head coach Tom Coughlin said more “research” needs to be done on the injury.

C Shaun O’Hara (ankle/Achilles) and LB Gerris Wilkinson (groin) did not practice. LB Chase Blackburn ran on the side and hopes to practice next week.

T Kareem McKenzie practiced after missing Monday with a migraine.

G Chris Snee returned to practice after celebrating the birth of his son on Monday. Coughlin, Snee’s father-in-law, now has 10 grandchildren.

Finally, Happy 64th birthday to Coughlin, who was serenaded Happy Birthday by the team at the end of practice.
