EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Giants got one of their injured wide receivers back on the field Tuesday, as Louis Murphy did some work after being sidelined in recent days with a leg injury.

Murphy did have to leave practice briefly, but that was due to a contact lens issue, not because of his leg. The speedy Murphy looked good in training camp, and could be another weapon at the disposal of Eli Manning.

On the other hand, wideout Ramses Barden (knee) did not practice Tuesday, after returning to practice Monday. Cornerback Jayron Hosley (ankle) and defensive tackle Markus Kuhn (knee) also did not practice. All three did some running and/or agility drills on the side.

Wide receiver Victor Cruz (heel) did not practice, but spoke to reporters.

Offensive linemen David Baas (knee) and David Diehl (thumb) did not practice. When asked about Baas, coach Tom Coughlin said, "He’s working hard, and feels a little bit better each day."

Rookie defensive end Damontre Moore (shoulder) got some team reps Tuesday, after returning to practice and doing only individual work Monday. And rookie safety Cooper Taylor (hamstring), who has missed the team's first three preseason games, continued to work as well.

Coughlin indicated Taylor will play against the Patriots on Thursday, but wasn't as confident about Moore. "I don’t know; we’ll see," Coughlin said. "I’d like for him to play."
