Tom Coughlin said this morning that both Victor Cruz and Jason Pierre-Paul will practice today, as the Giants begin full-scale preparations for Sunday’s game.
Asked if they would be limited, Coughlin said, “There will be some ability to withhold, perhaps, from the full practice but they are full speed ahead.”
Pierre-Paul did not play in a preseason game because of his June back surgery. Coughlin said he will have a sense of what to expect from his two-time Pro Bowl defensive end at the end of the week.
Cruz bruised his heel in Week 2 of the preseason against Indianapolis and has not played since. Monday was his first day back on the practice field.
*Also on the Giants’ initial injury report are center David Baas (knee), tackle David Diehl (thumb), cornerback Jayron Hosley (ankle), fullback Henry Hynoski (knee), tight end Adrien Robinson (foot) and defensive end Damontre Moore (shoulder).
