Giants early practice report

Offensive linemen David Diehl (hip/hamstring) and Shaun O'Hara (foot) were in pads and doing individual drills during the portion of practice Thursday afternoon. Fellow offensive lineman Shawn Andrews (back) was not practicing, though.

The status of the three for Sunday's game against Washington is unknown at this point.

Cornerback Aaron Ross (back) and defensive end Osi Umenyiora (knee), who were both limited in practice Wednesday, were working with their positions. Wide receiver Steve Smith (pectoral) was catching passes with quarterback Eli Manning, but is still expected to miss Sunday's game.

Cornerback Will Blackmon (chest) was riding the bike during the open portion, while wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (leg) was not practicing.
