For First Time, Giants Have Full House At Practice
NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) – It’s getting crowded in East Rutherford.
For the first time all season, the Giants had everyone on the active roster participate in practice on Wednesday.
It is expected that defensive end Justin Tuck, running back Brandon Jacobs and guard Chris Snee will all play after sitting out against the Bills on Oct. 16.
“I hope we have enough uniforms for these guys,” Giants coach Tom Coughlin said.
Even Ramses Barden got in the act. The wide receiver could come off the physically unable to perform list to face Miami on Sunday.
“He’s been practicing so it’s good to get him back here in the flow of things,” said Giants quarterback Eli Manning. “Obviously guys are playing well right now, but it does give you another body and another guy who knows the offense. He’ll be good to go and (we’ll) figure out a way to use him.”
“I wasn’t favoring anything, I was balanced,” said Barden. “As long as that continues I’m a happy camper.”
Less likely to suit up against the Dolphins is rookie fullback Henry Hynoski, who continues to battle the effects of a neck injury that sidelined him against Buffalo.
First-round draft pick Prince Amukamara worked with the scout team. It appears the cornerback (broken foot) may have to wait to make his NFL debut.
“The speed was a bit fast so I have to get used to that,” he said. “Physically, I am just trying to get the timing down. I haven’t lined up across from someone in a couple months so I am just trying to get acclimated to that speed.”
