Aaron Ross will practice today, but Michael Boley and Ahmad Bradshaw will not as the Giants begin preparations for their Sunday night home game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Ross suffered a left quad contusion three days ago in San Francisco and did not play in the second half. He has received treatment the last two days and will test his leg in practice.
Neither Boley nor Bradshaw have progressed enough to do that today. Boley injured his hamstring late in the first half against the 49ers and did not return. Coach Tom Coughlin said at his news conference this morning that Boley is "day-to-day."
Philadelphia has the NFL's top-ranked rushing attack (171.6 yards a game) and LeSean McCoy is second in the league with 906 yards. Asked about the possibility of facing the Eagles without Boley, the Giants' second-leading tackler and defensive leader, Coughlin said, 'We would prefer to have Michael Boley, for sure."
Bradshaw, the Giants' leading rusher, has missed the last two games with a broken bone in his foot suffered vs. Miami on Oct. 30. He continues to make progress, but not enough to return to the field.
The other players on the Giants' preliminary injury list are cornerback Prince Amukamara (foot), wide receiver/return specialist Jerrel Jernigan (hip), wide receiver Mario Manningham (knee) and defensive end Osi Umenyiora (knee).
The status of all injured players will be updated after practice.
