"He is on the path (to play)," Head coach Tom Coughlin told reporters. RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot, back), LB Mark Herzlich (ankle) did not practice once again.
"We expect him to practice tomorrow like usual," Coughlin said of Bradshaw. "He has struggled a little bit with the back but hopefully tomorrow will be a better day."
On how Manningham looked...."Fast"
On Osi...."He did good. He did a little bit more, felt better, felt good, moved around well....You have to understand that you have to see what happens daily in terms of how he feels and where he?s at and that type of thing. If he continues to progress, we?ll look forward to it. I?m saying that it will, but I?m not going to predict that."

Work Rules ? A number of changes to the working conditions were put in place. In training camp, there will no longer be 2-a-day practices, and maximum of 4.5 hours of field time per day will be allowed. One padded practice limited to 3 hours in training camp, with a second practice limited to non-helmet walk through. The agreement also provides for unannounced inspections by NFLPA Staff to ensure compliance with the new work rules.
Tom Coughlin has seen the difference. His team seems to be healthier this camp as a result of the new rules....
