The New York Giants returned three of their key starters to practice. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee), right guard Chris Snee (hip) and running back Ahmad Bradshaw (knee) each practiced in some capacity today after missing yesterday. Defensive end Justin Tuck practiced for the second straight day. Safeties Kenny Phillips and Tyler Sash were each limited participants.
Bradshaw rarely practices on Thursday's, as he has been battling knee and foot issues for nearly the entire season. If his injury has improved significantly since last Sunday's debacle in Baltimore, it will bode well for Big Blue's chances to emerge victorious against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Bradshaw was extremely limited against the Ravens, and the Giants offense became one dimensional because of it.
David Baas was not seen at practice. Furthermore, defensive tackle Chris Canty and cornerback Prince Amukamara each did individual work on the side. Their status' for Sunday's game are uncertain at this time. Out of the three, Amukamara seems the most likely to suit up, given that he was active last week.
Even without the aforementioned players, the Giants are more talented than the Eagles. Obviously, the more healthy starters on the field the better. However, the major determining factor in the outcome of this matchup will be the mentality with which the Giants come out with. if they spot the Eagles two touchdowns before they make their first run at the end zone, it will be another long day for this team. It will be interesting to see just how much pride this team really has on Sunday.
