Tuesday Morning Report: Giants Ready For the Stretch Run

The Giants came back from their bye raring to go yesterday at TIMEX. Eli Manning had no arm issues, looking sharp in practice. The rest of the team, with the exception of LB Jacquian Williams (knee), WR Domenik Hixon (ankle) and safety Kenny Phillips (knee) were participating in full.

Head coach Tom Coughlin expects to see Williams and Phillips do more as the week goes on.

The Giants are back on their regular practice schedule this week, with the exception of Thursday, which they will truncate practice to accommodate the team to spend some time with their families on Thanksgiving.

“(We’ll) practice like a Friday,” Coughlin said. “Get out of here by 2:00, and we’ll stay a little bit longer on Friday and come back and look at the tape after practice. They’ll have plenty of time to enjoy their families on Thanksgiving. We’ll all give thanks and then we’ll work a little longer on Friday. We just flipped the days a little bit.”
