The Giants returned from the bye looking as healthy as they have been all season.

Defensive end Justin Tuck (neck/groin), right guard Chris Snee (concussion) and running back Brandon Jacobs (knee) were on the practice field on Monday.

Also, rookie cornerback Prince Amukamara (foot) and wide receiver Ramses Barden (ankle) did some work during the early portion of practice that was open to the media.

Fullback Henry Hynoski (neck/burner) and safety Kenny Phillips (ribs) also practiced. The only Giant not seen on the practice field was backup center Adam Koets (knee). Head coach Tom Coughlin should give us an update on the team's injuries later today.

Getting reinforcements back this week is a major boost for the Giants, whose schedule will get much more difficult after this week's game against Miami.

Koets and Barden are both on the physically unable to perform list and it remains to be seen when they will be back. The Giants have a three-week window to activate both players once they start practicing. Barden’s three-week period began on Monday as he caught a few passes with the wide receivers.

Tuck has not played since Sept. 25 against Philadelphia but has said that he expects to play this Sunday against Miami. Tuck has missed the last three games with pain in his neck and a groin injury.

Jacobs missed the last two games due to a sprained MCL injury. The Giants hope to have the running back against Miami as well. Snee has been cleared to return after suffering a concussion against Seattle on Oct. 9.

Amukamara had been out since breaking a bone in his foot during his second practice of the season after holding out early in training camp. He began doing some light work prior to the Giants' bye week and the team’s first-round pick should make his pro debut soon.
