Today, just when you thought Giants WR Mario Manningham and DE Osi Umenyiora would be back at practice full speed, neither were. But that may not be the worst news. Eagles QB Michael Vick who was removed from action last week with a concussion WAS back at practice today doing individual drills and participated in a walk through.
Not the kind of news you want to hear on a short practice week heading into one of the most important games of the year.
Without Umenyiora the Giants will be once again reliant on JPP and Justin Tuck to rush the passer, while Mario Manningham will likely be replaced by Victor Cruz / Devin Thomas if he can’t go Sunday. The veteran slot WR Brandon Stokley will also see increased time this week as well.
