EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - Rookie left guard Weston Richburg practiced Thursday, three days after he was carted off the field in the Giants' loss to Indianapolis with an ankle injury. Richburg was officially limited, but is on track to start Sunday in Seattle.
"I expect him to go," Coach Tom Coughlin said. "He was really probably 50 percent today and I'm hoping to go inside and find out that he can do more tomorrow."
Richburg said he wishes he had left the field under his own power.
"I probably shouldn't have gotten carted off," he said. "I should have walked off. My dad always told me, 'If you're not dead, get up and walk off.' That's what I should be doing from now on."
Because he was driven off the field, Richburg has received some good-natured ribbing from the other offensive linemen, including being called a "wimp."
"Well, I deserve it," Richburg said. "Fortunately, it wasn't a super serious deal. I tried to get out there today and I think I moved well. It's just a little sore, but I should be all right."
