Giants' injury list shrinking
By Dan Graziano
The bye week has obviously been good to the Giants. They only had three players on the injury report before Wednesday's practice: Eli Manning (foot), Aaron Ross (hamstring), Ahmad Bradshaw (foot/ankle).
Of that group, Bradshaw was the only one who didn't practice today. Coach Tom Coughlin said the team would continue to bring Ross along slowly.
"We’re just kind of bringing him along, giving him more opportunities and trying to take off the straps and any kind of limitations that are there,” Coughlin said. “It’s his job to prove to us that there are no limitations."
More good news for the Giants: Falcons running back Michael Turner has a high-ankle sprain and it's unlikely he'll be able to play Sunday. That obviously takes away a major weapon for the Falcons.
