Early practice: Bradshaw practicing

12/2/2011

Here's an early injury report that Giants fans won't mind reading:

RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot): Bradshaw took some snaps during the portion of practice open to the media, which may be a sign that he is ready to play Sunday against Green Bay. Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Thursday that Bradshaw had to get at least some practice in to be able to play. Bradshaw did some light jogging on Thursday.

LB Michael Boley (hamstring): Boley was out on the field stretching and taking some snaps as well. He was limited in practice Thursday and that could be the case again for Friday, but he has practiced on both days. The linebacker said he was on pace to play Sunday.

WR Hakeem Nicks (ribs/concussion): As expected, Nicks was practicing on Friday. He missed the last two days after showing up with a headache on Wednesday and then being told by the team doctor to take Thursday off.

WR Mario Manningham (knee): Manningham stretched with the team before heading to the bike area. He later watched the offense practice with his helmet off. It does not appear that he will be active for Sunday's game.

DE Osi Umenyiora (ankle/knee): Not practicing. Expected to miss Sunday's game.

LB Mark Herzlich (ankle): Not practicing. Also expected to miss Sunday's game.

WR Victor Cruz (hip): Practicing. Was a full participant on Thursday.

DB Derrick Martin (hastring): Practicing. Was a full participant on Thursday.

DE Justin Tuck (ankle): Practicing. Was a full participant on Thursday.

S Antrel Rolle (back): Practicing. Was a full participant on Thursday.
