Center Baas anxious to get on field


Call it a draw. On the same day starting center David Baas said he's "looking forward" to playing against the Buffalo Bills, Tom Coughlin has no update on the status of guard Chris Snee, who suffered a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Baas, who missed the game while battling a neck injury, said he will prepare this week as if he is playing.

"It was probably a good decision to make sure, let it heal a little bit," Baas said. "This week it's still going to be kind of the same, but I'm preparing like I always would have – that I'm going to play the game."

Asked what will give him the green light, Baas said it will be a group decision.

"They want it to be as gone as possible as far as what's going on there. They want to be smart about it, we all do," Baas said. "There's a medical side, and there's this drive as a football player to get back out on the field. You've got to kind of find that gray area. I think that's what we're trying to find this week."

Meanwhile, Kevin Boothe, starting at center in place for the injured Baas, will also wait to see in what capacity he will be needed come Sunday.

"Chances are I'll probably know before you guys," Boothe told the media on Monday. "I don't know right now. I don't know what the situation will be. I'll be ready to go, regardless."

Guard or center, Boothe's preparation will remain the same.

"You have to, you have to," Boothe said. "It can happen on the first play of the game, or it can be the last play of the game. You never know when you might have to go in, at what position. So if you're up and you're dressed, you have to be ready for everything." !
