Coach Tom Coughlin

Q: Is everybody revved up a little more because of the Cowboys?

A: It is a divisional game and it is the same – last week we had a divisional game, this week we have a divisional game. It is very exciting.

Q: Because they have big play capabilities, does that take anything from your aggressiveness on defense?

A: I don't so. They do have that. They demonstrated that the other day against Tampa Bay, without a doubt. So we are well aware of that, but we have to play our game.

Q: Chris Canty?

A: He strained his calf.

Q: Yesterday?

A: That was yesterday, yes.

Q: How bad is it?

A: We'll see.

Q: Is he getting treatment for that?

A: Yeah, oh yeah.

Q: Michael Johnson didn't practice today…

A: No, but we are hopefully, we are feeling good about that part of it.

Q: How much further along is Aaron Ross?

A: You see him. He seems to be doing pretty well.

Q: You have had two practices now with Michael Boley. How is he doing?

A: He has done well. He has done everything that we have asked him to do and then some, to be honest with you.

Q: He was brought in for his athleticism – has the hip situation limited that ability?

A: He is a football player. That is why he is here. No, he seemed to be able to practice well.

Q: In the warmup before practice Jeff Feagles hit the ceiling about five times.

A: He was practicing, I think.

Q: Does he have to punt any differently on Sunday?

A: I don't think so. It depends on whether he is going down the middle or off to the side. And most of the time he is trying to figure that out himself – how he is going to punt the ball in different situations. So we are just going to have to go and see. We know what the ruling is.

Q: Was he trying to hit it?

A: When he is challenged.

Q: Was he challenged to hit it today?

A: I don't know, but that is what happened the first time we were in here in the spring. You remember what it was. Somebody said, "Bet you can't hit the ceiling" -- sure enough.

Q: Was Kenny Phillips moving okay today?

A: He moved well, yeah; he seemed to move well.

Q: The whole practice?

A: He made about – I don't know how many -- interceptions. He made about two or three. He was all over the place.

Q: He seemed to indicate yesterday that this is something that is ongoing…

A: It is a maintenance thing; it really is. So we are going to have to deal with that.

Q: What makes the Dallas defensive line tough?

A: They are very good. They are very good. It is a good scheme; they have very good players.

Q: Is Canty in danger of not playing Sunday, or don't you know?

A: It is pretty much day to day. We will see.

Q: How about Michael Boley?

A: Yeah. He has practiced; he has done well in practice.

Q: Is the calf injury with Canty a result of him coming back from a 'hammy'?

A: I don't know what it is. There is no way of saying that. He took a second step and had an issue.
