Benny Snell is now set for yet another day as the featured back with Conner’s shoulder continuing to bother him and no timetable for his return. Snell rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Browns, a week after going for 98 in Week 12.
Certainly a lot of confidence and a positive sign after Cook suffered a chest injury in Seattle on Monday, but he was on the practice field Wednesday and obviously feels very ready to go.

Giants WR Golden Tate (concussion) was listed as a full participant in practice Thursday.
The Giants are slowly starting to get their weapons back in full gear. Sterling Shepard came back, Golden Tate looks to be recovered from his concussion and even Evan Engram was listed as a limited participant Thursday.
