Giants HC Tom Coughlin today on his team's injury situation vs. #49ers:
Q: How are (Martellus) Bennett and (Hakeem) Nicks doing today?
A: They’re doing better. They’re not going to practice today, but they’re doing better
Q: Did you have hope that Hakeem Nicks will practice at all this week?
A: Yes. Hopefully. We’ll see. It’s like every other week. Hopefully, he’ll get a practice in.
Q: How about Jayron Hosley?
A: He’s supposed to work, today. Limited.
Q: Ramses Barden still on the list with a concussion. Is he going to practice?
A: He’ll practice.
Q: What about Kenny Phillips? Is he still out?
A: They want to do some things with him. I don’t know whether he’ll actually be included in individuals, or whether he’ll be on the side. He’s going to start doing some things with the trainers on the field.
A: He’ll be out there, just as he was last week, as we continue to find out exactly where he is.
Q: Is Phillips progressing?
A: We’ll see. I can’t tell you something I don’t know.
Q: With half of your linebackers on the injury list, what’s the status on Boley, Rivers and Blackburn?
A: Boley is going to practice. Rivers is going to practice. Blackburn is not (practicing) today but scheduled to go tomorrow.
Q: What about Rocky Bernard?
Q: Is Andre Brown any better?
A: Until he passes, I guess that means…that’s the signal. You can say all you want, but what we’ve experienced now, and I’m not trying to be tongue in cheek here, “Oh he looks good today, he’s bright, he’s ready…” You have to pass the test. No matter what they look like, feel like, how they respond to you; they have to follow the protocol and pass the baseline test.
