While New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul were able to return to practice Thursday, running back Ahmad Bradshaw was once again sidelined due to lingering knee and foot injuries, reports Kieran Darcy of ESPN New York. Beyond Bradshaw, cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring), safety Kenny Phillips (knee) and linebacker Michael Boley (back) also missed practice for a second consecutive day.
Coach Tom Coughlin said there was no update on Bradshaw's status for Sunday's game against the Falcons. As for Phillips, Coughlin said, "I really don’t know what to comment on that. He was back and then obviously had a setback, and now he’s working his way back again."
No players have been ruled out for the contest at this point, but today’s status of the four players that have been sidelined throughout the week will go a long way in determining whether or not they’ll suit up against the Atlanta Falcons.
