EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - Tight end Kevin Boss will practice today but center Shaun O'Hara will not as the Giants begin preparing for their home game Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
Boss, who suffered a concussion in the Sept. 12 season-opening victory over Carolina and sat out last week's loss in Indianapolis, has been cleared to practice fully.
O'Hara played in the first two games, but continues to be bothered by the ankle/Achilles injury that has plagued him since training camp. Coach Tom Coughlin said O'Hara is again wearing a boot as part of the efforts by the team's medical staff to eliminate the swelling and pain. Adam Koets will play center in O'Hara's absence.
Linebacker and special teams captain Chase Blackburn, who missed last week's game with a knee injury, will run on the side in practice and then undergo an evaluation by the team's trainers. Rookie linebacker Phillip Dillard remains sidelined with a hamstring injury.
Cornerback Aaron Ross (foot) and safety Michael Johnson (back) are also on the team's injury report, as is tackle Will Beatty, who is sidelined after undergoing foot surgery last week.
