Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Thursday morning headlines.

Weston Richburg: "Terrible" watching Giants lose

Center Weston Richburg had never missed a game as a pro or college player before sitting out Sunday against the Washngton Redskins with a high ankle sprain. He did not enjoy the experience, especially watching on television as the Giants lost.

"I wouldn't wish that on anybody," Richburg said. "Not being able to be there and help out, that was tough.

"It was terrible. I was shaking, nervous, and I had to get out of the house and take a walk at halftime, (and) take one after the game. It wasn't fun. I belong here, I need to be with my team playing. I don't want to do that again at all. ... Anything that happens, you want to share in the good things and when bad things happen, you want to be there to try and fix them. It was not fun."

The Giants could have used that kind of passion on the field last Sunday. Will Richburg be able to provide it this week against the New York Jets? After practicing on a limited basis Wednesday, he said he was "pretty encouraged."

"(It's) much better than last week," Richburg said. "Last week, it was pretty tough, but today's been much better. I did quite a bit more than I did last week, so it was good. It was very positive."
