Ross Heading Back

Corey Webster did not practice with a sprained knee, so it's a very good possibility that we're going to see erstwhile safety Aaron Ross starting at cornerback Monday. Just goes to show you, if you're not real happy with your position in the NFL, wait a few weeks. It might just change.

When asked about the possibilities of Ross moving back to his more familiar position, Tom Coughlin replied "Yes."

Also sitting out practice was Kareem McKenzie with a knee sprain, so rookie Will Beatty will likely start in his place, though Tom Coughlin said he'll keep an eye on McKenzie throughout the week.

"We're just encouraging (McKenzie) and listening to everything we get from the training room," Coughlin said. "(Beatty's) a good, young football player who's played a number of spots. He did a good job, and he's going to have to do another good job."

One player who was not on the preliminary injury list but was not seen at practice was WR Mario Manningham. We'll try to get an update on him ASAP.

In other news, defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka was voted as the winner of this year's George B. Young Memorial Good Guy Award, which recognizes the player most cooperative with the media. The award is voted on by the Giants beat writers, under the auspices of the Professional Football Writers of America.

Kiwanuka is the second defensive player to ever win the award, following DE Justin Tuck in 2007.

CB Terrell Thomas and C Shaun O'Hara came in second and third in the voting.



  1. I didnt realize terell Thomas is such a nice guy. U get me any DeDe Dorsey info Ern?

  2. Wayno:

    Giants said they worked him out. Other than that -- developing a short list -- I don't think there's any plans to sign him in the near future. Actually, no need to, since they now have four running backs able to be activated.
