Boss, Webster practice, no Andrews

November, 19, 2010

TE Kevin Boss, who was out Thursday with a back injury, and CB Corey Webster, who sustained a toe injury on Wednesday, were both back on the field and practicing for the Giants this morning.

There was no sign of LT Shawn Andrews (back), C Shaun O'Hara (foot) or LT David Diehl (hip/hamstring).

On Thursday, Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he wouldn't need Andrews to practice in order to play him on Sunday against the Eagles. Coughlin will address the media once practice concludes.

In the meantime, read Johnette Howard's column on the challenge of facing Michael Vick.

And this from Ohm: Umenyiora has been credited with a three-yard sack of Jon Kitna on the second play of the second quarter. After reviewing the play, the Elias Sports Bureau has changed the play from a sack to a rush for minus-three yards.

Umenyiora now has 8.0 sacks, which drops him into a four-way tie for third in the NFL. Dallas’ rushing totals from the game are 28 carries for 100 yards, Kitna’s are five carries for two yards and the Cowboys had 327 net passing yards.
