Injury Updates As The Giants Get Back To Business

The New York Giants got back to work Monday after five days off from their bye week, and head coach Tom Coughlin said it was "good to have them back." Here is a quick rundown from the coach on the variety of injured players the team hopes to have back soon.

  • Coughlin said wide receiver Ramses Barden "took probably one-third of the snaps," but would not commit to him coming off the PUP list in time for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.
  • Adam Koets, on PUP with a knee injury, is also now dealing with a back injury and Coughlin said Koets is "not ready to start."
  • Cornerback Prince Amukamara (broken foot) "did a little bit" at practice.
  • Asked if defensive end Justin Tuck was "significantly better," Coughlin said "He seemed like it."
  • Finally, Coughlin said Brandon Jacobs' swollen knee was "doing pretty well."

So, no definitive word on the status of any of these players for the weekend. It seems, though, like most of them are getting healthy -- and that is a good sign for the Giants.
