Good morning, New York Giants's fans. Here are your news and notes for today.
First-round draft pick Prince Amukamara said he "felt good" after participating in practice Wednesday for the first time since breaking his foot.
"I think I'm doing good on the timeline that Coach Coughlin said, which is I'll probably be here with the team after the bye," Amukamara said about a possible return.
The Giants' bye week comes following Sunday's game against Buffalo.
Giants quarterback Eli Manning is well aware of the 12 interceptions thus far in 2011 by the Buffalo defense.
"They are fast. They run around and they make plays. They are stripping balls from guys or just being around the ball and getting it tipped up. They are very sound on defense. We have to make sure that we are careful with the ball," Manning said.
That's the funny thing about former players - and even some current ones.
They sometimes say things they'd never quietly accept if those things were said about them. And it's not just Pierce, who chided Justin Tuck and Brandon Jacobs on Monday for not playing through injuries that didn't require surgery. And it's not just his former teammate Michael Strahan, who poked at Tuck three weeks earlier for getting treatment on the sidelines during the Eagles game.
